Gday all

I have just recently purchased (for Xmas) a Fleishmann starter set - 7 6393, plus additional track from a hobby shop nearby, along with Fleishmann Loco 4080 with carriages 1401 - 02 - 03

I'm will be starting off on a 2.4m x 1.2m MDF or Ply board - unsure as yet and hopefully building off from there.

I look forward to any tips or pointing me in the right direction where to begin as I am a complete newbie to this apart from a Hornby set as a kid, that got smashed up in a B & E

Look forward to your tips and all the reading ahead on DCC

Hi Nosy and welcome to the MRF from sunny Dubai.

Sounds as though you have made a good start purchase wise. Next task is to build some good, solid baseboards. There are various methods of doing this, depending on whether you intend having different levels with gradients or just be part of the 'flat earth' brigade. Just run a search on baseboards and you should come up with several recent threads on the subject.

Good luck with the layout. Look forward to seeing your progress.

Hi Nosy and welcome to MRF

It's always nice to welcome another continental modeller, although admittedly I do mode both sides of the channel.

Regards

Thanx for the messages

It all looks daunting at the moment, especially without anything in my hands as yet - come on Xmas (Big bloody kid)

Appreciate advice on baseboards

Zmil - that train has come to a good home

Hi Nosy

Glad to hear that , I still have his twin brother I had to trim down my collection a bit

There is an interesting layout in a small space in a shed that is worth a look to see what can be achieved in a small
space You will find the thread Here

Lots of pictures to look at
