    Welcome to The Gauge... Glad you decided to sign up and post some! What kind of railroading do you do?

    Am not only a noob to the site but also to railroading. Am currently intending to build an N scale/gauge layout.

    Thanks guys, you sure know how to make someone welcome.

    Got to admit though that although i have bought one or two items, a couple of locos, some rolling stock and some track etc, the layout is still very much in the planning stage. But hopefully over the next couple of weeks i should have a clearer idea of how i wnat it to be.

    Well, better late than never!! Being from Northern Minnesota we are always a week behind due to slow thaw of the brain dontcha know ;)

    So, welcome aboard to a Newbie from an Oldbie.
    I am just stepping out of N scale myself and headed into the great unknown of On30, sooooo we'll be learning together. If i can help you with your N questions,go ahead and shout,holler or otherwise git my attention somehow someway (a PM generally works well :D )

    Youve come to a great place. Not omnly with great modelers, but some damn fine people that treat everyone like family.
    Its a great place to hang your hat and yack about Trains~~~ :thumb:
