    Hi All,

    I'm 73 years young, a member of a very small club in Hollister, CA. San Juan Pacific MRC. We are 10 members strong and reside on the the premises of San Benito Co Historical Park.
    We have 2 small layouts HO and N. I am a N-scaler (2 of us).
    I designed the layout after we were asked to leave the San Benito Co Fairgrounds after 14 years.
    The layout is Digitrax DCC as is the HO side but mine (if I can call it that) is run by a Raspberry Pi with several Arduinos running the switches and block detection.

    That's the Gist of the situation.
    Thanks for having me.

    Welcome Aboard Don. Do you have photos of the two club layouts. We love photos.

    Not as yet. The n scale layout is currently nothing but a plywood frame. The HO side is much further along.

    Will try to come up with some.
