I started in this hobby back in 1990. I only had an oval layout in my basement I could not afford much because I was too young I was about 18 yrs old. Then I went away to college and my grandma gave away my train stuff. Fast forward to 2007 we moved into a new home and started a family. I was nervous when my wife was pregnant cause I wanted the baby to be healthy, thank god he is, so I started a new layout the moral of the story is I have about 110 N scale locos since I started my layout in 2007 I use them all not at once but depends how I feel. I just wanna see when other members started to model and how many locos you guys up too so far. Just a short story on when you started and why.
