Just a quick note to introduce myself. My name is Peter and I live in Australia, I am 52 years of age and have just recently caught the model railway bug, having had a OO and a TT set when I was young. I am in the process of acquiring all the components that I will need to build my own layout and am joining the local Model railway Club. My weekdays are spent at University studying Information Technology, my interest being mainly in the web although friends do constantly call on me to fix/upgrade their machines. I am a boilermaker by trade, hence my nickname, my apprenticeship being done with the Victorian Railways back in the late 1960's so you could say that trains are in my blood (I have other relatives who also worked for the Victorian Railways.). Well that's all for now, I look forward to posting more in the near future.
