Yeap, haven't been visiting this site in a long while.

I'll do shortline freight service as soon as I build a bigger layout.

All,

Its not impossible to run a single road and not be able to run everything! Its possible! Thats the beauty of proto-freelancing. Thats what I do. My HO Petaluma and Santa Rosa has a tourist train, interchange with the NWP, etc. The interchange allows me to have NWP, CWR andCFNR locomotives, as well as my own. The tourist part allows me to run occasional steam and passenger, as well as give me a depot.

Sure thing Chad!

Jelani, I occasionally partake in LALS events.

Hayden, check out my youtube too! railrider51

You don't have to have a full circle for fun! Making a switching layout and challenging yourself is not only realistic, but fun as well.

I don't model any particular time period or road name because it limits the fun I can have. My HO tourist railway certainly isn't realistic but it's fun and all my youtube followers love watching the action on my tourist railroad. https://www.youtube.com/user/TheDeputation/about

I model two time periods, the 40s and 50s, and the 80s up to the present day.  My modern stuff I try to keep up to date with what's going on in the real railroad world.

Whatever makes you happiest, do it, if it's ultra realism, do that, if it's a mix of realism and free lancing, do that, if it's just running things at random, do that, be true to yourself.

Having fun is definitely the most important thing about it, I totally agree!  Realism is great too, I try to be realistic in my model trains, but I also don't let it rule my modeling, as long as I'm happy then that's all that counts.

My style of operating is very retro in a sense of engines, and consists and sometimes couplers bu I apply modern techniques to kep my stuff running strong. I don't aim to mode realistically, just for the fun for me but I agree at a realism stand point that knuckles are better.
