Hello all! So after several years of reading, watching, browsing...I have finally pulled the trigger and started my first build! My name is Alex, I am 32, from Washington State, married with 4 kids. I have been in the Navy for 14 years so as you can tell, I don't have a lot of time to break away. Model railroading is the perfect fit for my small spurts of time away. I am going with a N scale layout mostly because of space. Eventually I want to move into HO...mayyybe O scale... Either way, I am really excited to finally be getting into this and I look forward to interacting with the community!
