    Hello, I actually joined this forum back in 2013 so I could see some pictures in threads but was not active or participated; until now.

    I got into the hobby 40 years ago through my father, and I’ve felt it calling me back over the last couple years. This year I decided to get more serious returned to my interests in n scale and Santa Fe;

    Will be looking to setup a new 4x8 layout this year of 1930-1950s railroading influenced by the ATSF lines west of La Junta.

    I will definitely need your help!

    Welcome to TrainBoard. My dad worked for ATSF in New Mexico before I was born. Sounds like a great plan!

    @Metro Red Line i’m located in the san Gabriel Valley. My parents live in diamond bar, so that’s probably where I’ll be starting my layout.

    hope the smoke this past week is getting better for you.
