With my new N Scale railroad finally underway, I thought I might start a thread where I can post progress, assuming I make any. I've been an N Scaler since 1968. My current railroad is the Delaware, Susquehanna & Northern, a freelance anthracite regional set in the early 1980s, operating lines that Conrail chose to reject. This will be my third DS&N RR, with the first in 1980 and the second in 1987. The second version lasted thirty years, but was often inactive in its latter years, as career and family took priority over model railroading. There have been so many changes in N Scale that I almost feel like a new hobbyist. I'd be lost without the support and friendship I've received here at TrainBoard. I painted this caboose in 1980 and I hope it'll be following my freight trains for many more years.
