    Hawks NEW "MHO Junction" layout

    Thread Starter: Hawkesburytrain

    Hey everyone, October is just around the corner and I should be starting with my new layout soon. I'm still finishing my basement, still about 1-2 weeks of work. For now, here's an almost final design. Since I'm not very electrically knowledge, I need help. I have a NCE Pro 5 system...

    I'll try this. The first pictures will be an overview of the layout. It's not a large layout, but as I have mentioned, I really enjoy switching, and this is what the layout was built for. The first picture is what I call Gallatin Junction (Gallatin Gateway) which is at one end of the line....

    The Union Pacific Soggy Bottoms Division (HO scale)

    The decline in the number of model railroaders?

    Thread Starter: tomstockton

    In a different thread, but still here in the General Discussion group, there is a thread discussing the varying amount of participation on this (and other) forums. But "hidden" in that is something I've never considered, and it ties into the header of this thread: "The decline in the number of...

    Why the huge fluctuation in participation here at the Model Railroad Forums?

    Thread Starter: NP2626

    I only joined here at the Model Railroad Forums in August of 2016, so am a relative newcomer. However, since I brought the internet into the home in 1996, I have participated in many different Model Railroading Forums. All of the time in 2016 and on through the spring of this year, participation...

  • About the "Home" Page

    This page will eventually be the landing page for the entire website.

    Currently it's still under construction, so we're directing folks to the Forum page, which will also be the most familiar page for our existing members.

    This page will features news, information, new posts and photo gallery images.

    At the moment it has some generic categories and sections that came with the software, so there's some weird sections like "cooking" and "travel". They'll go away before too long, but at the moment our first priority is getting the forum back online and running smoothly.

    Oh, not at all, thanks! I wasn't aware of the San Pedro club—sounds interesting—especially since it's N-scale! Thanks for the head's-up! I

    Timonium Train Show, anyone going?

    I plan on going. However, I live an hour north of Timonium. I've found it's pretty good for everything I do except wood supplies, and even that has improved

    Been there, done that. Back eons ago, a derailment sent a brand new 8-40C to the floor on its maiden run
    I did fix it, and reconfigured the layout
