Hi everyone, I am just starting out on this new venture of mine with model trains , starting with OO gauge, and with a bit of luck gently moving forward to being able to "customise" engines ,carriages etc
Please be patient with me as this is me totally out of my comfort zone with hobbies of any kind , although I am really looking forward to it.
I have started off , as so many probably have buying a hornby OO model kit set, the "West Coast Highlander" , next is getting a large space organised, ( shed )

Standing by as we mail each other !. worth buying at this stage the Peco catalogue and the Track Plans books, study as best you can as these are crammed with information.

So welcome and hope we hear more from you.

PS - You can never have enough space so grab as much as possible as soon as you can!

Welcome. I've just built a shed, not for the railway, but for tools, equipment etc so that I could claim the double garage... well half of it anyway. It's a hobby that builds your skills up, and if you already have them, keeps you in practice and out of the pub. Why not register so you can keep us all updated on your progress.

Cheers, Peter.

... How do I submit a query?

Look at all the forum subject areas, and pick the one that best fits what you want to ask about. Open that area by clicking on it, and then click on 'new topic',
a little grey box that should be on the right about halfway up. That will give you a screen with a topic title line and a page for the text, on which you can enter
your query. Once you have completed, click on the 'submit topic' button at bottom of screen to get it posted. (This is from memory, not easy when you don't
really think about the process!)

You have up to an hour after posting to edit what has been posted, if you want to alter something: click edit button, select 'quick edit'
is what I do, amend as required and when it is right click 'submit modified post'. (I know this bit well, have to do it a lot...)
