New guy from Iowa

Postby Stan » Tue Nov 06, 2012 11:18 am

Thanks to Bob Roegge I'm a recent convert to Gn15. Already have 2 chassis for locos, bachmann On30 industrial engine and bachmann On30 trolly. Bob set up a display in the Ames Iowa area over the weekend and had several people interested in what he is doing. I'm truly looking forward to a model railroad where I can just have fun and not worry about rivet counting. I plan on participating on the forum a lot in the future.

:shock: I was over that way last month (Boone, actually). Iowa is quite a nice area. Welcome to the nut house.

Welcome Stan, I'm pretty sure you'll find us a friendly bunch. As to rivet counting.........there's some that are trying to farm them!

Enjoy

Stan,

Welcome to the wonderful world of fun modeling. You can build in a scale manner or silly manner as you saw at the Boone trainshow. I had a wonderful time and glad I influenced you.

Hello and welcome. I have a personal fascination with Iowa, Tractors and grain elevators, so feel free to post as many pics as you want!

I am a rivet counter I am afraid, only I end up loosing half the darn things on the carpet once I've made them. Ho-hum.
