Hi folks
I'm John.
Thanks for having me here and I look forward to nicking people's ideas and putting in some of my own....

I was born in Pleck, Walsall in the English West Midlands.
I got into trains at senior school and had a Hornby layout until my move to Australia in 1973.
With retirement in 2008, I started a layout but dismantled it when the missus retired 3 years ago as we planned to downsize and move.
The move is now complete so I'm in the planning stage for a layout and am looking to pick the brains on here for info.
First - what height should the baseboard be at - I see there's a thread on that so great!!!

Thanks for that Graham - much appreciated.

I'm with you on that - I've been reading a US book on baseboards (Model Railroad Planning 2022) and I was starting to get the impression that a height of at least 122cm was normal.

It would however have a benefit of having having heaps of storage room under the boards.

John

Many thanks for your comments everyone - they are very useful. I can see I'll have to look for a rolling step - something that a few minutes ago I never knew existed....
