Hello, my name is Dave, I am 64 years old, Married and live in Queensland the hotter part of Australia.
I have been interested in trains all my life with many childhood visits to New Street Station Birmingham, of course to collect train numbers, ahh still dreaming about those Jubilee, Scot and Patriot engines.
My first layout was based on a Hornby 3 rail Dutchess of Atholl loco, aged 12, I have built a few layouts since mainly HO and N Gauge but never got very far with them, mainly due to family commitments.
My current layout which I have called Boulder Valley is what I call a Hotch Potch Layout, freelance all the way, set sometime in the 60s at an unknown location that came straight out of my head.
I think my problem is I like so much model railway equipment that I did not want to get tied into any particular thing, this of course gives me the freedom to do and run what I please, I find that enhances the fun aspect of the hobby for me.
Anyone wishing to take a look at the layout the link is bellow, thank you.
