    Hello, everyone!

    I just found you folks, and want to say hello. I'm an On30 modeller, who converted from HO scale when Bachmann brought out those great RTR On30 locos and rolling stock.

    As I'm new to O scale, I should have LOTS of questions about model railroading in this new size.

    Thanks!

    Welcome aboard Steve,

    You'll find you're in good company here. Catt and recently Shamus are into the "O" scene and are very helpfull and knowledgable. No doubt there are many others who don't post but are waiting for the opportunity to help out.

    Steve,
    Welcome to the gauge, welcome to On30. At this point, Catt seems to be the resident expert (he has posted the most On30 pictures) here. Once I complete the rebuilding of a 2' X12" HO scene, I'll have the space to start an On30 lumber switchback scene in the vacated space. Looking forward to seeing other's efforts in On30.
