    Hi Folks:

    Im Just getting back into the hobby after being gone for 20+ years. I model in N scale, and will be building a loose interpretation of the San Luis and Rio Grande. Im a tech geek, and so will be using DCC (not sure yet Digitrax or NCE, Comments?) but not computer control. I am also planning to use either CarCards and Waybills or Switch Lists for operation (again, comments?) Looking forward to hearing from many of you

    Hi Tim, Welcome. I'm a DCC dinosaur, still happily running DC as I started back in 1947. However, fascinated watching it at shows. My love is (near) perfect trackwork and newly learned scenery. But since you prefer N-Scale you can't be all bad. We have a whole bunch of N-Scale and DCC Geeks here who are here, myself included, to offer opinions and experience. So ask away.
