After a 50 year hiatus from modeling railroading I have decided to get back into the hobby. I have opted to go with DCC which is quite a change for me. As I child, back in the old days, each rail and each spike was laid by hand. Also back then, most of the rolling stock and buildings were kits only. As I type this I am in the process of constructing an 4x8 platform in my FROG (not a turnout, but a finished room over the garage : ) . I hope to learn much from this forum and I thank you all in advance for helping me.
