    Hi, my name is Barry and I'm getting back into model railroading. I am just beginning to restore the z-scale Marklin train 8910 set my father made me when I was about 10. It's pretty rough right now, but the locomotives & Rolling stock I have have fared pretty well. Hopefully you can see the photo I've attached.

    I know z-scale is really niche & expensive, but it should be really nice when it is done.

    Hi Barry, Welcome, happy to have you on board. Looking forward watching you rehab your layout.
    Being from NY and having a B&M avatar makes me curious. You wouldn't have lived, or are living somewhere between just (railroad) east of Petersburg Jct. and Mechanicville? I spent 6 years in Hoosick some 70 years ago watching FTs, F2s, and F3s fly through.

    I grew up in Concord, NH so I have the Blue & Black in my blood. That's me at the Manchester NH rail yard in a switcher!

    Welcome, new here myself! Like the profile picture.
    I remember these B&M units very well. I lived in western
    Massachusetts growing up and remember the B&M line
    from Charlemont Ma to Troy NY along the Mowhawk Trail.

    Welcome, Barry! I love the niche gauges and scales. I’m even dabbling in Nn3.
