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!!!

I support Graham here, 900 plus a bit means standard kitchen units slide under and I use some older ones for loco storage, generally the reach is 1 metre but less on the sides and deeper at the station then I have a couple of stools I stand on so can reach everywhere, the duck under put me off whilst I recovered from GBS so I am OK now but standing up again well not as fast as I j used to be.
(unusually no photos available - I'll take a few)
