Hi Folks, My name is Bob. I have been fascinated with trains my entire life. As a young boy, my dad and I built several layouts in HO and N scale. Once I left for college, life took over and the hobby unfortunately took a back seat to my career. Well, soon I'll be retired and my hope is to start back up in N scale. I'm sure a lot has changed in model railroading since the 1970's. I hope to learn and grow from the knowledge and wisdom on this board. Thanks!
