    Newbie here. Love the hobby so far!

    Hi everyone. I am new to the hobby and forum. I have done 1 2ftx2ft fantasy terrain layout. I am not doing trains, but moving to a 2ft by 2ft HO scale scenery. I did the last on plywood as my base. I am looking forward to learning from the forum and meeting like minded individuals.
