Hi folk,
thanks for membership. Located outer eastern suburbs, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Retired loco driver, still active as volunteer fireman on narrow gauge public steam Railway.
Dabbled in model railway for 35 years but up until now have not attempted a permanent layout in HO. Designed an elaborate N scale layout on a common house door which was enjoyed by my children when they were young.
Finally decided to construct a 12' x 15" shelf layout in my hobby room (former bedroom) and am in the process of laying track and points.
Also, have bit the bullet and entered the mystical world of DCC... ESU equipment. Have ECoS, LokProgrammer and tester and two Lokswitch units.
Scratchbuilder of loco's and wagons, constructor of brass/white metal loco kits plus plastic carriage and wagon kits.
Convention is Victorian Railways, circa 1970-2010 amounting to vehicles I have either driven or fired on.
Looking forward to both contributing and learning during active membership.

frats,
Rosco

Ok, don't know how this is going to work... using Apple/Mac machine - another learning curve, not ESU friendly.
So, promised pix of current progress of shelf layout - not too late to pull it up and redesign, so suggestions highly appreciated....

You're lucky - we have 2-3 days of really heavy rain forecasted up here - 150mm.

So far you've only been greeted by your countrymen, so welcome to the Forum from the UK as well!
My avatar is a Midland Railway signal of the late 1800s; I'm involved with a preserved 1892 signal box in St Albans. Although I never worked on the railways I've been an enthusiast from a very early age.
