I have to introduce myself as a newbi, but at age 61 I find that a little funny. I have allways liked trains and have dabbled in N scale, G scale  and now I have found Live Steam. This is the most satisfying of all that I have experienced so far. To watch a simple (really?) machine that works as sweetly as a steam engine is just awsom. To watch it on the track under its own power is one of the things mechanical minds like us cannot explain. I started with a Ida, then a Mich-Cal 2 piston Shay and now am going for some type of bash from a Ruby kit. Back yard still needs dug up for track but the time will come God willing. So I may have a lot of questions from all of you to help me along the way.
Thanks for having me,

Pleased to meet you, DB!

"Are you a new kid?"

"No, I'm 6 years old!"

I'm a sparky myself, but I have to admit to drooling over some live steam equipment I've seen:D

Welcome DB,
  Always good to see another live steamer.  There are a couple of steamers that I know of in your area.  Of course your always welcome to come and steam with us in Michigan at one of our events.  Have fun with your trains. :D

Welcome to MLS Dennis!

I agree with your assessment of the live steam. I'm not their yet, but will be someday. Lots of Live Steamers here though to share thoughts, ideas and your steamups with :) And tons of experience for helpful answers and suggestions.
