Hi folks, I just ran across this board and am happy to have found it! I've been fascinated with trains, mostly N, since I was about 10. Had kinda built a few things over the years, but never had the money, patience, or skill (or all of the above), so either abandoned projects early, or ended up with unsatisfactory results (track, jerky engines, poor scenery), so paused the hobby for a bunch of decades. Well, the time has come and there is no turning back this time. I've found a lovely lakeside home with a small, but decent basement, of which I'm going to appropriate enough to have a 16' x 9' around the walls space. I'm busy devouring everything I can find online in terms of tips and tricks and hope to find some good advice here (promise I won't be a nuisance). Going with Unitrack for reliability, building on foam for the first time, and the rest will be a journey of discovery... Looking forward to chatting with members on here as well Cheers!
