    Just wanted to say hello, I am new to the site. I built an HO layout a year or two back but ,being in my cold basement it just kinda slipped away. Now my wife gave me the OK to build up stairs in a unused spare bed room. The room is M/T but still going with a smaller layout to start. She says we never know when one of the kids may want to move back in,,, but, I'm pretty sure I know. When your a young adult and move out, you really don't want to head back to the nest. Anyway, Started a 3X5 N scale setup and this time I want to take my time and try to be ,,,,, crafty. Allot of good info here and look forward to building in a warm room with a TV. LOL, Good to meet you all. Joe

    Welcome, Joe!

    Of my four daughters, three moved back in at least once. That's why one bedroom is now a library, and another is a second office.

    Joe-

    Welcome to TrainBoard!

    Glad you found a warm space available. Get it occupied, so move-backs are not possible. :D

    Have fun!

    Thanks all, Yes, going to fill the room as quickly as poss. LOL.
    Its kinda nice to have a room with windows, light, tv and HEAT. The room in the basement was finished but, never put heat down there. In the short time I've been here, looking, reading, learning, I have picked up so many tips I NEVER even thought of. Thanks again, joe

    LOL. Well, I set her up with a hobby of her own, gardening. She loves to plant, which I like also. So I kinda put some time into her setup, building things for her hobby in our back mud room and..... well you know the rest.:thumbs_up:

    Welcome, Joe. Kids these days....tsk! They have no compunction about moving back in with Mom & Dad. When they feel the pinch, they'll ask to come back. Been there.

    If you build a layout of any size, make it breakable into two sections as a minimum so that you can unbolt it, separate wire connections, and horse the components into the garage for storage up on the joists/rafters.

    Whoever said, "You can't go back," didn't have kids!

    Welcome at TrainBoard, Joe.

    I can only underline, building a modular layout is a good starting idea.
