    Hi.. I'm Lee from Moline Illinois (next door to Rock Island) I just found this forum while checking out an online Hobby shop. I retired last May and when winter set in I decided to take up N scale trains that I used to dabble in in my youth. My prefered road is R.I and C&NW but as they say " it's all good ". I am going to brouse around for a while so if I have questions I'll ask.
    See ya:)

    Great that you found your way here! There is, as has been mentioned, a long discussion thread on N scale RI equipment, and I'm sure you'll find many other C&NW folks too.
