I'm new here. I've been a model railroader since I got my first Tyco trainset for Christmas back in 1972. I modeled in HO-scale from 1972 until 1991, when I lost my layout due to my parents moving out of state. I had no room in my apartment for anything so I went a few years without a layout at all. In 1995 I bought an N-scale Atlas GP-40 and a few M/T freight cars and I've been hooked ever since. My main modeling interest is the Erie Lackawanna, followed by the Lehigh Valley, and the Delaware & Hudson. I have a small layout, but since I recently moved from an apartment to a house I'm hoping to get a larger layout started in the basement.
