    Hi,
    I will get a photo of my ugly mug up in the Avatar soon ( enjoy the time without it )
    I am one of the magnificent six founder members of the Platform One Forum. I met the acquaintance of the others Gary, Gormo, Ron, Matt and Paul on my previous ( and first ) Forum experience.
    You'll get to know me as we go along.

    I model in OO gauge both steam, early diesel and modern day image. I'm a DCC man and looking to incorporate A degree of Computer control with either RR & Co or JMRI.
    I have three layout posts ongoing at the moment. My main layout is a shed based layout and is called The R & GLR.My second is a plank type layout calls Highbridge which is also underway and my last is Breadalbane which is still on the drawing board although the rolling stock and NCE control system has been bought for it and a traverser utilising an " open build " linear actuator has been assembled awaiting further progress on to the traverser baseboard which is work in progress you could say.
    You can find out more under their individual threads which will all be updated soon with pictures and further dialogue.
    I'll look forward to hearing from you all.
    Toto

    Hi Don,

    We'd be delighted to assist. If you can send some more details to me, we can start up a link in our links section.

    This is currently being developed but it should not take much to get it started for you.

    I'll take a look at your clubs website and see where we can go from there. I'll speak with out techy team and see what they suggest but fear not, we can do it.

    Cheers

    Toto

    Thanks Toto
    We are only moving in to the new club house this weekend and it will take us a few weeks to rebuild
    our 2 club layouts.We are also planning to build a new large oval running/test track in 00 and N guage.Its all a bit of a gamble.Our old club premises were small, cramped and cold,not the place to attract new members. The new club premises are a 750 sq feet of busines unit on a local farm.We have a low rent for 6 months then a full commercial rent so we need to attract new members as soon as possible. We have put together a membership recruitment plan and a club development programme.We are looking for new members to help develop and build the new club.For membership details please contact me via PM
    Any help would be most welcome.
    Kindest regards Don

    Hi Don for security and piece of mind I've removed the phone number and email for Dr Alwyn as requested and any interested parties should contact you, ' puffingbilly ' via PM.
    Toto will be in touch via pm to organise a more permanent link for you

    Thanks
    Matt
