Hello from Syracuse, NY!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've been a fan of trains for almost my entire life now, primarily Japanese and European electric railways, and I've been a fan of plastic modeling for quite a while now, and I've decided to take the plunge into Railway modeling. I'm learning the basics from a few websites now, and I'm looking towards placing a few orders on some sets soon (Looking at some KATO brand starter sets and some KATO brand light rail trains) and I'm looking forward to making some connections and getting some help on the forums here! 

 

As the title says, I'm from Syracuse, NY (more upstate if you're not familiar with the location) and if there are any N-Scale modelers nearby, I'd love to possibly meet up and talk a little about beginning with these awesome models. 

 

Thanks!

Hi Kobland, welcome to the forum. I hope you're able to find some other modellers. Is there a club in the area?

Welcome. There are lots of resources here for learning about modeling. If you're not already buying your Japanese trains directly from Japan you should start. Better prices and much better selection that stateside. I'm in the Midwest but will be moving to Upstate NY in the summer.
