I have dabbled in N scale, railroads off and on for 15 years. I am starting to work on what I hope to be my first real layout. I will deliberately avoid any one railroad - since I love many railways and have extensively travelled over the world - looking and admiring trains of many eras. The layout will be over - engineered as with everything I do. I will chronicle my trials and tribulations along the way so others may learn from my mistakes or duplicate what worked.
Every hobby has a beginning, and my fascination for trains started in childhood. My uncle was then an engineer with the Indian Railways and we spent many a summer vacation near a railway yard - in the official bungalows he was living in, somewhere along the Northern Railway system.
One day I will model the Indian Rail System.
