Hi all, I just took the plunge and became an offical 1st class member. I have been on the site under the free membership method, which I think is a great feature to get a feel for the site. Today I decided to support this great site and enjoy all the benefits it has to offer! I have a small collection of rolling stock and locomotives, mostly Aristo and USAT. I am planning to start laying brass track outside this spring, probably using a combo of ladder and floating track method. I just purchased my first QSI magnum board and in the process of installing it now. I will probably go with QSI/GWIRE/NCE/battery system but I and still looking into the pros and cons of this. Looking forward to alot of questions and answers in the future! Have a great weekend!
