We are MODEL RAILROADERS. When we started in the
hobby it was confusing for us, too. Now we have learned some things and
are able to provide some of the answers. We are
eager to share our knowledge to help others enjoy our great hobby. Regardless of your modeling scale (Z, N, HO,
LIONEL O, G), modeling skills (rank neophyte, beginner, average, or better), or
whether you are interested in building a layout, a modular unit, or
a garden paradise, we can point you to other MODEL RAILROADERS who
have faced the
same challenges and overcome them.
If you want to do a
little reading on your own, try out the
nmra.org web pages to give you "An
Introduction to Model Railroading". You will find it interesting and
Or, you can get a free online tutorial
at this site, sponsored by one of the hobby's premier magazines and the
World's Greatest Hobby consortium.
If you want to contact someone
locally, all you have to do is describing your problem or interest. We have someone
monitoring all correspondence and will get back to you with answers or pointers
to other resources.
