I've already posted a couple of questions and had some excellent replies, but here is a formal 'hi'. I am not exactly new to model railways but, like many I guess, I abandoned the hobby in my early teens only to resurrect it several decades later. I am now in the middle of constructing a rather ambitious - probably over-ambitious, but you only live once - project in my attic and, although I have suffered many setbacks, progress is slowly being made. I am sure the experts would have kittens if they saw my layout, with its bodges and howlers, but I am proud of what I have done. Anyhow, expect a rash of extremely daft questions in the months and indeed years to come.
Cheers
Mike

Hi Mike welcome to the forum


Always good to see modellers coming back to persue a railway

I would echo what has been said i have had loads of good advice and tips
Possibly a few pictures of how the layout is coming on would be nice to see.

Welcome. In the couple of weeks I have been a member I have learned much here and been pointed in the direction of some excellent material. Like you I was away from the hobby for quite a number of years. IMHO the hobby has improved enormously with so many new things to learn and do - DCC sound, lighting etc. and great new products.
My only additional tip is join a local model railway club if you can.

*** Keep at it Mike, and stay proud of your achievements - its a hobby to be enjoyed and no matter how long we are doing it, none of us ever stop learning!! There's a world of experience here and most are happy to give whatever help we can and share what knowledge we've accumulated.

Certainly there are no silly questions and often more than one perspective and one usable answer as we all do it a bit differently, so ask away as often as you like, and enjoy MRF.

We're generally a happy mob of modellers!

Regards

Richard

We can all learn from each other - I too have learnt a lot from MRF & even better made quite a few friends too.
