Hello everyone,

I´m a retired airline captain after over 37 years and 18000 hours "up in the sky" and am now back on terra firma. In the late fifties and beginning sixties my hobby was model trains, but due to flight training and so on I had to put it aside. Later I then "converted" to model airplanes but am easing off on that now.

I still have all my old Märklin stuff but I can see the huge development which has occurred since then. It´s a brand new world but I am very much looking forward to learn more about it. I find it quite amazing and admire such realism that you see now in the design and construction of model trains.

I hope through this Model Rail Forum to get a good start and will be looking forward to join in.

Oh I don't know - there's nothing wrong with a bit of video.

Seriously though, welcome to the forum and enjoy your visits.

Hi Torben and welcome to the MRF.

If you get withdrawal syptoms from the model planes you could always run some wires above the layout and have a jumbo or two on final approach to some 'off-scene' fictitious airport.

Come to think of it, that's not a daft as it might, at first, have seemed though I have never actually seen it done. Couldn't do it on mine (set in 1946) - unless, that is, I could maybe find a 1:150 scale DC3.

Anyway, enjoy the hobby and the forum. Look forward to seeing some pictures.
