Hello,

I'm Ryan, I'm 14 years old (9 August 15 years
), and I'm living in holland, I'm born in England, bit almost living 14 years in Holland, so my English is not 100%.


I've got almost 5 years modeltrains, I started with Fleischmann analogous, 4 years later I bought a Roco Digital LokMaus, and since 2 weeks I started with Hornby and Bachmann. I was on holidays, and I was going to the Griffithstown Railway Museum, and in the shop I saw a Hornby EW&S Class 60!
And in London a Shunter Class 09. Great loco's!


I've got a few questions, but you will see them at the forum.


Byeeee!!

Welcome to the forum!

Don't worry about your English- native speakers of our language (in the South East particularly) often commit horrendous acts against our dear language!

>only Celtic
Would that be "P" Celtic or "Q" Celtic?

I'll don't know the differents between the "P" and "Q"?


I'm just from holland, and I'm interrested in trains, so, I don't know much of the languages in England.
I'm already happy that I can talk English.

I should have put a
on my comment. I wasn't being /that/ serious. However, it would be unfair of me not to explain the difference.

The "P" and "Q" names come from predominant sounds each type of language makes. "P" celtic languages are Welsh, Cornish and Breton. "Q" celtic languages are Irish and Scots Gaelic (sp?). Each type is mutually intelligible in the way that Spanish and Portugese are.

Chan'eil. I can get by with Gaelic but most Welsh is lost on me. They aren't as mutually inteligible as Spanish and Portuguese. Even Breton which developed from Welsh would not be easily understood by a Breton speaker now.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow (9th).

Enjoy the forum. Plenty to learn and you can always input too.


Looking forward to hearing what you got for your 15th?


Thanks!!
Now I'm more than €230 bigger.

So, I'm going to buy a locomotive (I still can't choose one
), an maybe a transformator, or/and some track.

That's the point. Gaelic is Q celtic and Welsh is P celtic, so they aren't mutually intelligible.

To which an appopriate reply might be : Go raibh maith agat. (Thank you, or more literally "may good be with you".
