Hi everyone; Well, the little voice at the top of the screen said I should throw a thread up here saying hi, so here I am. I'm a thirty-something father of a son who is utterly and completely obsessed with trains. I've been thinking about how cool it would be to have a model train set for a while now, and what better time? I've been doing some reading here and there, and even made it a point to pay a visit to my FLHS (Friendly Local Hobby Shop) and say hi. I haven't really quite started yet, but hopefully soon, that will change. See you around the boards! Travis.
