    Good day everyone, my name is Peter, 43 years old, happily married and father of 5 children.
    Once I started this hobby in N scale but because old habits continue, my father had Märklin so in the end I also went to Märklin.
    My scale is now H0 and I'm making a South German layout in the era 3 - 4, 60s and 70s.
    Some steam and diesel locomotives.
    The best thing about the hobby is the wide scale of subjects, building, electronics, programming, landscape building and of course the trains.... super cool to do it all.
    I hope to learn and share a lot here.

    Greetings, Peter.

    Please do share. We would be very interested in seeing any photos of your layout, a track diagram, or?

    Thanks, I use Esu decoders with Zimo speakers, one iPhone 4s speaker and one iPhone 5s speaker (all original Apple from old phones), the 4s speaker has the most full sounds, the 5s is less full but has a nice small form so it will fit in my small dieseltrain.

    Hi Peter, welcome. Happy to have you on board. Thank you for an interesting and realistic operation video. I didn't realize it was a three rail system until the video moved to the roadway crossing and I saw the conductive center line in the wood. Marklin does a nice job concealing the third rail pickup.
