About two years ago I decided to get back into model railroading.  I used to model in HO scale but went with On30 this time because the size allows more detail and I wanted to try my hand at scratch building.  I started with a small 2' X 3' module and built a few structures and added sound and animation using Arduino.  We've recently moved into a new home (St Augustine, FL) and I have a room dedicated to the hobby.  I used AnyRail to design a freelanced two level shelf style layout based on Colorado mining in the early 1900's.  I got a lot of inspiration from the "Modeling the Gilpin Tram" thread so I decided to join the group here.  I've attached a shot of my module and will start a thread later on about the layout as I make progress.
