Welcome to full-scale modeling!  Actually, my HO friends refer to it as 6 inches-to-the-foot modelling. ;D

Welcome David. Hope to see you venture up to Sheepscot when COVID-19 breaks. Meanwhile you’ll find a lot of folks here who can answer your questions.

Phil from South Windsor, here. I've been riding trains since before my first birthday, initially out of Portland, where my father was stationed on one of the Coast Guard's weather ships. My fascination with the two-footers dates back to the RMC article on Edaville, back around '67. I've been intermittently involved in railroad preservation dating back to the now largely-forgotten New Orleans Railroad Museum, followed by the Valley Railroad and CVRM, as well as some time at different trolley museums. All this was punctuated by about three and a half decades as a transportation planner, and later as a policy analyst at the state level.

Thanks kindly for giving me the opportunity to participate in this forum. Your group has raised the bar in so many respects, and it is delightful to be able to follow it.

Hello. I'm Dante from Sanford, Maine here. I've been a member since June 2020, and have volunteered a couple of times, too. I'm looking forward to volunteering more often this operating season.

I also do 3D modeling in Blender as my main hobby, I mostly do British locos, but have attempted some 2-footers as well from time to time.
