Recently taken early retirement so I have decided to spend time - in between decorating and other "essential" jobs - to build myself, and grandsons, a new layout.

Not having done this since my teens I can see from perusing this site that I have a great deal to learn again, but spurred on by the recent gift of the "local" train set - Bachmann Cambrian Coast Express - and the recovery of some old models from the loft, am re-living my youth and teaching my grandsons the joy of playing with trains.

I have even managed to get a Triang 4-6-2 Princess Elizabeth running again - not been out of the box for 40 years!

This is a great site with lots of help and information available - well done to everyone involved.

Hi Alan & welcome to MRF.

Nice to see another returnee (even the sentance ryhmes !) - shame about my spelling.
Welcome back and welcome aboard

Welcome too! I returned to railway modelling some 5 years ago after a break of some 40+ years as well, but purely for my own pleasure, I happily confess.

Have fun,
John Webb
