Who am I and What is NCat? ~ Wednesday, June 28, 2006
My name Nick Kibre, and I'm an N-Scale trolley modeller.
NCat stands for N (scale) Cat(enary), and is an informal group of modelers dedicated to modelling electric railways--trolleys, interurbans, heavy electrification, light-rail, rapid transit, mining, whatever--in N Scale, with live (as in, actually used to power the models) overhead.
This branch of the model railroading hobby is definitely not one where you can just go down to your local hobby shop and buy something that's ready to go. It takes a bit of ingenuity and a desire to do it yourself.
It may not be easy, but it can be done! Follow this blog and watch me try!
