I'm new to this forum, but I've been into trains all my life.

My favorite locomotives are small steamers, and I also have a soft spot for shop-built critters and inspection vehicles.

My scale/gauge of choice is On30, though I don't have a proper layout at this time:  If I ever get the space it would be nice to build a logging layout, but for now I run DCC trains along the walls between two rooms of my house with reverse loops at each end.

Howdy Eric, welcome to Freerails. We have a large On30 bunch here who also love critters and tiny lokies. You will love being here, it's the best on the net.

Hi Eric :wave:


WELCOME to the friendliest & funkiest bunch of train nutz on the web !


Steamers & critters aplenty are to be found & not just in the On30 Forum.


The 'Dioramas', 'Photography', 'Railcars' & in fact most of the Freerails Forums, have something for everyone.

So check 'em out !

Speaking of small steamers and shop built critters, you may well enjoy this thread on our banner mascot.
