I got into N-Scale in 1986. With all the traveling I was doing, I built a 3 X 5 that I could flatten and put in the granny's attic in the U-Haul...
I got into n scale last year when my mother in law gave me a new old complete set she had in her closet for years. It was I believe a Bachman highballer. I thought It would be a perfect under the Christmas tree in my family room set since it was a simple loop of track about an 18 inch circle. Well it was for about 30 seconds then it grew to 4 foot by 4 foot and that was great! For 30 seconds then it went to 6 foot by 4! And now it’s 8 foot by 4 foot.
18 January 1997. Easy to remember as I landed in the USA on the 25th. The day before the Super Bowl XXXI.
Got into it by accident but I am not sorry ever.
Long story short - my younger brother borrowed my car while I was working abroad (UK) and let's just say with him as a student, the car got neglected.How did you get into by accident ?! This does not seem to be one of the those things that happens accidentally haha sounds like a good story !
Not at all - too lazy....
Did you happen to disassemble the layout and rebuild it from scratch ? Cool story
Wow Big Ed I looked at all the pics and read the old thread that’s a hell of a way to start out lol. Do you still have that Lehigh valley sw1200 switcher? I just picked the same one up at a train show a couple weeks ago and I love how smooth it runs at low speeds. It’s my favorite switcher! Just for the record did not pay what that sticker says!2011
