Hey everyone, I'm coolengineer (or also Alex). I'm newbie to the hobby and I will be dealing with mostly HO and maybe some O Scale in the future. Right now I'm just looking for clubs to hang out at in the greater San Francisco area. Late steam era will be what I will be focusing on. Steam trains have always been my passion (really I'm fascinated by anything that is steam driven). I work as a maritime engineer (both steam and diesel) so I want something that eat up a lot of time when I'm home. So that is me, kinda sorta. So anyways, I will be looking forward to learning from you guys.
