    Hello. I'm new to 'trainboard' and happy to finally post (with excellent help from a friend). Looking forward to exchanging information about n scale railroading. On my web page are pics of my layout in Chico, Ca.

    Marty,
    Welcome to TrainBoard. I invite you to browse areas here besides the great N-scale forum. Some suggestions are the fora in the full-scale area, where you might find just the detail you are seeking to finish a trackside area; or the Cattle Car, where we go a bit off the railroad topic. Of course, there are many others. So browse and have fun.

    Take advantage of Railimages to make it easier to show us our photos.

    Marty, welcome to Trainboard, especially the N scale forum ;) Your cabooses look great. I backdated my era a bit so I could run them!

    I look forward to seeing more of your work.

    I agree that Marty does some really good modeling. I have some of his cars on my layout now and look forward to more.

    I am new to this trainboard also and have joined at Marty's suggestion. I am building my 5th layout in 12 years (moved 3x) which focuses on Portland Terminal passenger and freight operations in 50's and 60's. depending upon what I want to run. The layout is also DCC.

    Hopefully there will be enough for all of us. Marty and I went to GATS in San Rafael SUnday and he picked up some more "raw material"

    That's great news. I need a bunch of those woodchip cars. I have a few of the Dimi Trains SP Sugar Beet cars which also make nice 50's and 60's chip cars.

    Hello
    Thanks for the warm 'Trainboard' welcome. Going to attempt to post some 'chipcar' pics. My communication skills are just beyond sendind smoke singles, so bear with the computer ' NOT'.
    Robert, I think the Dimi high side gons are more for the SP 'beet cars' I make my sides go to about 10'7''. It varies probably depending on the make of the car I work with. The Dimi is limited because it allows for on the composite drop loading gon and many of the western railroads change steel rivoted gons into chip cars. Especially the SP&S that had at least three different types.
    Can anyone help with brake assemblies for boxcars? The SP&S put the hand brakes towards to tops of some cars. I haven't been able to do that. Intermountain is the only one that has the assembly
    Thanks Again
