And very glad to be here!

I've been a railroad buff and model railroader for most of my life and come from a railroad family (C&NW) on my Mom's side.

Transitioned from N scale to HOn3 in the early 1970s. While living in northern California I was very involved in NMRA contest modeling, mostly the Colorado n.g. roads.

I moved to the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1976 and wrote several articles on the area's narrow gauge lines for the NG&SL GAZETTE in the 1980s during which time I worked in Public Relations for Homestake Mining Company in Lead, SD. Then I became pretty much an "armchair" model railroader in the 1990s and 2000s while pursuing other hobbies.

However, I retired last November and have re-kindled my interest in building another layout. Fortunately, all my HOn3 "stuff" has been resting, carefully packed away, and is now being re-awakened!

I hope I can contribute something to this Forum. I know I will learn a lot!

Thanks very much in advance!

Scott Z.
