      Hey Thom,

      thanks for the welcome. I'm located up in Northern California about 30mins south of San Francisco. I'm sure as i delve into this i'll have many a question. I visited with club in this area that uses the sbendtrack standard. I look at it last evening and it was an eyeopener. I've alway take the approach to modeling as grabbing a 4x8 sheet of wood and laying out some loops and whatnot. The modular approach looks a lot more fun an flexible.
      Thanks
      Scott

        Hi Loren,

        Thank you for the welcome as well. I'm up in Belmont California, just south of San Francisco. The weather is very nice here, however, $4.35 a gallon for gas should probably get first place for highest price. Not sure to :) or :( on that one. lol.

        Again thanks for the welcome. I'm sure to be posting some questions shortly.

        Scott

          Well Scott,

          Both Thom and I lose out on your joining our groups, but you are very
          fortunate to be in the neighborhood of the BAZ boys. Looks like you are
          just a few miles from Fremont, home Robert Ray, one of the best Z scalers
          and modelers on the West coast.

          You are in true Z country and I highly urge you to introduce yourself to
          Jeff Merrill, Robert Ray, Matthew Petach, and others from BAZ.

          You will thoroughly enjoy their company. Not to bad mouth Thom from
          Midwest Z Haulers as those guys also put on fine shows, but I'm a bit biased
          when I say the West coast boasts of 5 Z groups from Seattle down to the LA
          area.

          I used to attend the BAZ shows, but distance and lack of millions has kind
          of curtailed my Z adventures of late.

          Only $4.35 a gallon......and you are complaining why? Come up to Medford
          and spend about $3.80 for basic unleaded. See, that is why I don't venture
          far from home any more.

          Do join the different groups and share with us all. We're all family.

          Best,
          Loren

            Scott, sure hope that was you that stopped by the World's Greatest Hobby show at the San Mateo Event Center last weekend ! We get together pretty much just get together to run trains at these types of shows or some local event (hence the Z-Bend Track module standard). However, each of us periodically work on our modules or help with newcomers. Home layouts or what we cal BYOZ (bring your own Z for shows, office or education) are both discussed amongst us SF Bay Area Z BoyZ.

              Gentlemen, Let's get off the gas price topic right now please.

              I'm sitting on 2 messages that will not be approved because now the discussion is turning political one country vs. another, or comments on our government.

              More "gas" comments may be removed... let's enjoy trains!!
