Hello RPUG; Thanks for allowing me to join the group, I'm not just brand new to RP but to RR modeling also. I'm retired and started modeling outdoor G Scale MKT (KATY) and RIO Southern Lines. Our layout is fairly small just 200ft. of track with 4 switches, a couple tunnels and a trestle. For now I have USA SD70MAC UP KATY 1988 Heritage Loco and Bachman Big Hauler 4-6-0 Anniversary Steam Loco and various rolling stock. Lots to learn!

Welcome, Leon. To us inside railroaders, 200í sounds like a lot of track. We wouldnít mind seeing some pictures.  ;)

Hey all! Thanks for allowing me to join the group. Noah Toomey, living outside Seattle. I've been collecting G scale (mix of scales) since 1985. I've got ~200 LF of track in our yard, running a mix of LGB, USA Trains and Bachmann. My 9 year old son is getting into the hobby as well with his first LGB Stainz Set. Lots of fun.

Until now, I've only ever run rail power., with a traditional/old school controller. Doing a lot of research, I've jumped into the RailPro world : ) I'm just installing into a bachmann Climax and USA Trains 44 ton switcher to start. Hopefully soon I'll be trying to wire into an LGB Forney.

Cheers!

Welcome Noah,

We're getting quite a few large scalers on here now which is good. You've got a good hobby to share with your son, fingers crossed his interest lasts a lifetime.

Hello RPUG! Thanks for letting me join the group. Leon McGee, living in Mt. Vernon IL. I'm not only new to this group but to modeling as well. I'm running G Scale MKT and Rio Grand garden railroad lines. My USA SD 70 is set up on RailPro LM-3S-G and hoping to add LM 3S-G module to my Bachmann Annie 4-6-0 ASAP. Anyone have any pointers on installing the module in Bachmann?

Welcome Leon.

You might get a response (we have quite a few large scalers here now) if you ask your question in the RailPro Discussion and Help Thread, which is the primary thread to get help (this one is basically to say "hello, this is what I do" so I imagine not everyone reads it).

Hello ya'll,
I am Emery from the Mansfield, Tx area.  My railroad is in the beginning stages and have a RP kit with many modules still in boxes for almost a year now.  Progress is happening, but still awhile before the electronics will be installed.
Thank you for allowing me to join this fine group.

Hello, Emery. I am also from the Mansfield area but Mansfield, Ohio, and I am also in the early stages of layout construction. Like you, I had my RP equipment about a year before installing it. I took advantage of that time by reading every posting on the site and tried to remember where I found it.
 Welcome to the group and donít be shy about asking questions, there is a great depth of knowledge available be simply asking a question and it is free information.

Hello from northern Cincinnati!
« Reply #179 on: September 30, 2020, 05:40:06 PM »
Hello! I'm located in West Chester, OH - which is a northern suburb of Cincinnati. Digitrax's DCC system is the strong contender here n this area but have always been intrigued by RailPro. The deal was cinched for me when I operated on a layout in the Indianapolis area.
I finally started construction of my multi-deck SP Lordsburg District HO scale layout earlier this year, and am getting close to when I'll have the first of my track laid. I'm going to need to run something on that track so will be purchasing the RaiPro starter kit and at least one loco module soon.

Also, I have been retired now for just over one-year so have the time needed.

If you are interested in my layout, I've been blogging it over at the MRH site. You can find that here:

Looking forward to taking advantage of all of the tribal wisdom resident here on the pages of RPUG!
