I really enjoy & look forward to your daily e-mails. Very informative & lots of helpful tips. I’m 68 & live in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada.
I’ve been modeling in HO scale off & on now for about 30 years and have been a railway enthusiast ever since my dad, or should I say Santa, gave me a wind-up train when I was only 3. The memory of it running with a smoking cigarette butt sticking out of it’s stack is still vivid. Keep up the great e-mails.
“Good morning Al,
I just got back from a nice vacation visiting my daughter and inlaws in Holland. I had lived there for a while after college and my wife is Dutch. We go there often and I am always so impressed with their Rail system. So organized, so clean, and so easy to get anywhere in the country. So of course I had to visit as many hobby shops as possible and add a couple Dutch locos to my collection. I purchased a beautiful NS “hondakop” and a NS Grey-Yellow loco and a bunch of NS passenger wagons.
I also visited the Dutch Railway Museum in Utrecht which was awesome. A must take for anyone who visits the Netherlands
I have appreciated you posting a few of my entries (photos) in the past so I figured I would try a video. This is a real amateur video entry compared to some that you post,but here are my new Dutch NS loco on my New England layout together with one of my older “switchers”.
Two fantastic layouts from Ray and James – thanks to both of them for sharing. Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.
And if they have inspired you, grab the guide and get to work on yours today. There’s no point sitting on the side lines…
Thanks for all the nice comments on the guide and the site by the way. I really do appreciate them.
