    Well I discovered this site a few days ago, and I like it. I just got back into model railroading again (HO). I thought that I never would as I used to play with my dads train layout, and when he died gave it away to my older brother. So from when I was 18 years old till now I'm 39, I hadn't touched a train set, my brother died of cancer last month :cry:and since he had packed all his things a while back as he did not have the space, his wife asked me if I wanted it, I said yes of course :)announce1...

    I am picking up the boxes this weekend and I have a 11 X 17 room in the basement that will be free this fall, as my sister in law lives there and is moving out, so sine my wife knows how much I love trains she said yes...

    So I guess that I will have time to get back in this wonderful hobby that I missed so much for those last 21 years....

    And yes I live in Mascouche, Quebec not far from a QCGY railway line, about a 15 min walk.... so I can do some trainfanning!!!:thumb:

    See you guys later....
