Where to begin ?

I am a new kid on the block and, at 66, it feels a bit like moving into a new neighborhood. I am a bit lost, but curious and excited. I don't have much of an idea how to navigate this Forum but I do want to make friends and learn about narrow gauge.

The layout my wife and I built in three rail O was called The Munoz Lines . . .dedicated to my late Father-In-Law a hero at the Battle of Cassino, Italy in 1943. We loved building the layout and sharing it with friends and now I want to get serious about two rail trains, good scenery, DCC control and learning about narrow gauge. I'm a city boy from the Bronx so I am truly a greenhorn. Perhaps some of you can give me a heads up on how this here narrow gauge forum works.

Much obliged

Eliot,

Welcome. On3 covers a lot of territory. My personal preference is S scale and two foot gauge, but I am a fan of the three footers as well. Aside from the Colorado lines I have looked at some things like the New Berlin and Winnfield and some of the Pennsylvania logging lines. I respect models in any scale and gauge if they make the builder happy. This is a hobby not a blood sport like competition bridge or chess. The only real losers here are those who insist that there is only one way to model. Please feel free to tell us more about your interests and how you got to the point you are. If you have communicated with others via email, then this is just a site where you can do that with a bunch of people at once, rather than just one to one. Think of it as a community bulletin board where others are free to put up their flyers and comment about yours. I have found that asking questions that you are unclear about will probably get you some informative responses.

Just my take on the situation and once again, welcome.

Kent,

Many thanks for your post and your welcome. It is true that folks from Kansas City are very gracious and good looking. My wife is from Kansas City . . . . . Independence actually. It is a great story that I love to tell.
Not enough room or time right now, but a great story of her family coming to America and success.

We live here in the snow belt of New York now and are attached to family and friends . . . . all cold.

I am a transferee . . . . from the world of toylike trains and a large three rail, hi rail layout. We loved building our last one, The Munoz Lines, and as soon as I can figure out how to post photos, I would like to do so. I did read the , "How To," but I am still a bit fuzzy on that. Being a photographer, of course, that is most embarrassing.

Aha, I think it is easy, LOLOL

Thanks, once again, for your welcome !:)

Thanks, guys.
I would like to learn how to insert multiple photos in a post.
I read as much as I could, but I could not find that.

First-Unless you are using Internet Explorer of Fire Fox, the Gallery--where you are supposed to load photos WILL NOT WORK.

That is why we have the single attachment option--strictly for those who's systems will not work with ours.

Also, read


      http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=3118&forum_id=3&page=2

There are so many combinations of systems that trying to figure issues is beyond me,.

Herb

Herb,
Thanks, I am much less confused.
I can use Firefox, I think.

Eliot,

Welcome to the forum, good to see some other interest in On3. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have been working on.

I have an interest in all things narrow gauge, eastern, western and foreign. Modeling eastern narrow gauge in On3 and western narrow gauge in On30.

Cheers!

Brian

Brian,
Many thanks for your welcome. I completed a very large layout in three rail/hi rail (photo attached) and I have completely dismantled that. I am attempting to recreate Malcolm Furlow's San Juan Central in On3.
