    Welcome aboard Bruce. As we pull away from the station, please remember to keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times. The coffee is on the stove in the corner and should be hot and ready for you to grab a cup. Make sure to post in the weekend threads so we can see your progress, and throw a layout thread in the N scale forum so we know where your givens a nd druthers are. Check out the prototype picture threads for some great inspiration, and make sure to keep an eye on the for sale posts incase someone here has something just cant live without.

    Hi Bruce,
    Things have really changed since the 80's. N scale has come along way. Three is so much available.

    Welcome to TrainBoard, enjoy a great hobby!
