Hi everyone!

Long-time lurker and new member here. I've been a model railroader since I received a Marx clock-work tinplate set back in the early 1960's. Over the years I've dabbled in N, HO, S, O 3-rail, and On30. I finally realized that rubber-gauging could get expensive, so I settled on HO as my primary scale (but I still have my O 3-rail for Christmas and the grandkids and my On30 collection . . .)

Presently, I'm working on a small 1 x 4 micro layout in HO called Endalyne (End of Line). It's basically a 3-2-2 Inglenook with an extra kickback siding. I'm having fun with it until I begin work on my somewhat larger switching layout.

As for me, I'm 54, married with three kids, two grandkids and three dogs. I serve as a pastor in Prattville, Alabama and in addition to model railroading I enjoy photography, writing, and travel.

John

Hi, Dwayne! I see by your photo you have a Dachshund - we have two of them (one is a black & tan like yours) and also a Border Collie/Lab mix.

The little guy in my avatar was Keylock, one of five miniature doxies my ex-wife and I called fur-kids. Sadly he crossed the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago when he was 12. He rode shotgun for over a million miles when I still drove a semi-truck around the US and Canada.

My current wife talked me into adopting a rescue dog in March. The photo below is of Maggie who was a survivor of the May 2013 tornados in Moore, OK. She is active in helping me with my 1:17n30 outdoor layout. :)

Hi Guys
This is my first post on this, or any forum, as having read a considerable number of the previous posts I suspect the answers to my questions can be found here.

I am a retired (real) property manager and valuer (appraiser) of public houses and have been active in model railways for the last 40 years, with interests in British (GWR and BR diesel period) and North American (1880s, post 50s SF and Amtrak) railways, recreating them in 1.9/2mm and 3.5/4mm scales (N, HO, OO). I am also involved in the administration of and the building and exhibiting of layouts with a local model railway club.
Thanks for letting me in and I hope we have a fruitful relationship.
Geoff
