I had peaked in here from time to time for answers to various questions and always got pretty good information. I am 54 years young and back in the 1980's in high school and college I had an HO scale basement layout. Nothing fancy. One or two switches and no blocking or isolated tracks.
Fast forward just over 30 years. I have been married for 30 years and have an 18 year old son. Every year I have put a Lionel set under the Christmas Tree; because I have always loved O gauge. I am disabled and retired and have been gradually building up a collection of various rolling stock: Lionel,MTH,Atlas & Weaver.
I really love trains and have since I was a little kid. A few months ago, my wfe approached me and told me I should set up my trains year round.I build plastic models and have a one man business; bt trains have always had a special place in my heart, probably because I grew up in a big train area and saw them all of the time.
So I told my wife I'd LOVE to desgn, build and run a new O scale layout, but where? Our cellar is way too damp and not really set up for something like a layout. She said, "How about the bedroom?" We have a huge bedroom and have wanted to downsize. We have two large walk-in closets so we won't be cramped and I will have space for a 5' x 10'-5' x 4' L shaped layout! I have been collecting everything I need little by little and hope to start building before this Christmas.
I plan to record the whole project on YouTube and Bit chute. I'm really excited and I hope to learn a lot here and help assist anyone I can! Thanks.
