Hey all. I'm reentering the hobby after 50+ years. As a youngster our dad introduced model railroading to me and my brother with adn 8'x4' American Flyer layout. I spent many hours with their catalog building a life-long and yet-to-be satisfied desire to have a Super Chief. However, I'm starting off with small goals, an Amtrak Southwest Chief with and a Christmas tree loop. After the American Flyer beginning I did build Lynn Wescott's HO Railroad that grows and had great fun with that. Recently I did locate a local model railroad club and found a bunch of guys my age with a broad range of knowledge. However, I was also encouraged to join this forum by my eldest son, an experience N scaler. So here I be!
