I want to start a modular rail group.

Just wanted to say to all my TL friends. Sorry, I haven't seemed like I have been active on TL but, I have, just as a spectator. I just don't have any new info. going on. I dont have any place to set up my H/O scale still. I haven't done any rail fannin' in awhile(cost of fuel v. amount of paycheck). I do read some post, look at pics, and watch some vids. I am still here. I am just quiet.
Do anyone Know the best type of ballast to use for Ho scale Track.
I love walking home to the sound of a Leslie S3L in the distance.

Back again for an update: We had sold all of our model trains and layout to another gentlemen. We are using this money for a couple of different projects that we have. I am sure I could post pics on my profile if any of you are interested. I had kept a few models; ones that meant a bit to me.
The new projects are a 1980 Firebird Trans am Pace car (1/5,700), and a recently acquired 1981 Trans am 4 speed (1 of about 3,500)
One car has the 301 turbo/ turbo 350 with a 3.08 posi, and the other is going to have a 400 put into it with a BW super t10 4 speed manual with posi out back.
I am building the motor myself and just about complete, as well as the transmission rebuild myself. Going to tear all the front suspension out and replace bushings and repaint. At my age of 16, I hope to accomplish much more than this.
(I`ll upload some pics after this post)
*Sorry for what I did last time I was on here, was younger and was an idiot. I have changed quite a bit from then and many things in my life have since changed. Just going to say that there were quite a few things that happened since. I had Lost 2 of my real good friends and my girlfriend that I was very very close with, and went through a stage of my life that I don`t want to repeat.

Well my one thing done Tuesday involved turning an old club paintted athearn T9 into a powered loco using a newer chassis and putting a decoder in it and getting my UP GP9 decoder swapped out for a Tsunami sound decoder so now I have 2 great runners. Plus I sold the NYC GP9 that I had for sale yesterday already. One thing done Tuesday turned out pretty good.
