New to the forum is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.


Nick, Chip gave you some very good advice. Don't worry about rather or not you can achieve certain goals with your layout because of the lack of knowledge or skills. The learning process is what we all go through and it is continuous. With every hour you spend on the hobby there is more knowledge gained and new or better skills learned. And, don't forget, that is what these forums are all about...Modelers helping Modelers.;) :)


I have to agree with Chip and Rex. I'm a bit of a perfectionist but since I've been out of the hobby for so long I don't expect to be able to be that perfectionist right away til I'm completely back in the swing...
