      I'm just joining this group and I want to introduce myself. My name
      is James H. Nicholson and I am a Bio-Medical Research Image
      specialist at a major teaching hospital. I live in historic and
      beautiful Charleston SC near the beach.
      I'm not completely new to Z-scale as I had a "work-in-progress"
      layout about 10 years ago. Before that I had a large (30') HO layout.
      My hobby took a decade long hiatus since our home didn't really lend
      itself to layout construction. I recently moved and once again have
      the space to work in.
      To start, I have a mint-condition Orient Express set with the three
      extra cars and a basic "starter" freight set with some extra beer
      cars (model what you know). I kind of lost my interest
      in "authenticity" when I realized that the rather modest Charleston
      passenger depot platform would be over seven feet long in HO scale.
      Now I'm more interested in creating a fun and fantastic world out of
      my own imagination. I plan to create some impossibly steep mountains
      and populate them with David Winter buildings (another passion). For
      those that haven't seen them, David Winter crafts whimsical old-world
      cottages and castles in no particular scale although quite a few look
      perfectly at home with Z-scale.
      Since digital imaging is what-I-do I will be happy to share pictures
      as my little kingdom develops. Right now I am busy catching up on all
      the new techniques and goodies that greet someone who didn't pick up
      a copy of Model Railroading for a decade. I'm sure I will have many
      questions.

      Hi James, Welcome aboard, from another fan of vertical terrain! Since you Z locos have been resting for a few years, just make sure they have a good cleaning

        Hi James,

        Welcome aboard, from another fan of vertical terrain! Since you Z locos
        have been "resting" for a few years, just make sure they have a good
        cleaning and oiling before you apply power to them. I look forward to
        seeing your work in photos.

        John
