Greetings to all,
I am an HO modeler from New Zealand who specialises in "if it lookes good I will use/do it". I have been in the hobby now for about five years and having just shifted house I am on my third build. Layout will be in the shape of an "E" with a dual mainline running around the edge and the arm of each peninsular having a different theme (mining/quarry/lumber, Engine/Railroad facilities and finally a small town). System is DCC running off an NCE Power-Cab having initially used a Bachman Dynamix. Very interested in Kitbashing and scratchbuilding to end up with 'what I am after'. Great follower of Youtube to learn techniques.Looking forward to being an active member of this board.:java:

Hello everyone,

I am a HO, N, and On30 model railroader. I mainly model in HO and On30 (just starting). I have a HO layout I tinker with when I have time, and this summer I am going (hopefully) build a On30 and a N scale layout. I have only been a serious model railroader for three years, but have been in and around the hobby my whole life. I'm just starting to get into kit bashing and scratch building, but don't have much time because of a stupid thing called high school keeps getting in the way of modeling :P. I'm also a certified Conductor at the Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth, Georgia.

I have recently stumbled across frerails and can't stop reading it. I have read a good chunk of the On30 things.

Here is a photo of my annual Christmas layout.

Now who was it that was saying that younger folks aren't interested in this hobby?

Hello all,

Thanks for letting me join, so here's a bit about me.
I have been modeling railways in most scales (N to 12inch - 1 foot ) for best part of 6 decades. My interests are predominately Narrow Gauge. I have in the past built & exhibited layouts in 00n3 (4mm /foot 3 foot gauge) 0n2 (1:48) 0n3 (1:48) 0-16.5 (1:43 /7mm-foot) 0e (1:45 - Eastern European) Currently I am working in 1:24 - ( aka Gn15). As I live & work in Nigeria (West Africa) I can only build stuff here, and it is in the way of CKD so that I can ship the models semi- built in my carry-on bag. Then when it gets to it's (my) final destination it can be assembled & completed. There are plans for a number of working dioramas in 1:24, for when I retire (hopefully next year) . Pretty well every thing I have ever done has been scratch built (well it has to be with the esoteric prototypes I chose). I have also done an amount of custom kit & scratch building in the past. I'll put some photos of a range of my stuff up when I've studied the "how to up load photos"


Just to prove I'm a real person!
I'm an English Engineer overseeing the construction of small to medium electrical power generation plants here in Nigeria. All my working life I have been involved with industrial equipment (earthmoving, rail traction & power generation . )

Howdy Trevor, welcome to Freerails. Looks like you are interested in some exotic narrow gauge found in exotic places. Feel free to send photos and let us know what and how you are doing. Take care and run a train today.

Woodie

Hello all, I am just converting from large scale to on30. Making all my bench work from 2" x 4" steel purlins. (50 x 200mm) in new speak. Welded it to the corner wall of my shed.
As I sell of my 1:29 railway I will be biulding up a layout like the Thunder Mesa wich the basics has caught my eye.

My garden railway ran around the backyard & into my shed, I cut the walls out to make entrances and exits, so trains were all ways parked at night.
Here is a link to some of my photos,
