    Thanks for the greetings everyone. Just to say a few words of introduction:

    My name is Martin and I'm an addict... whoops, wrong forum!

    I am a bit addicted to railways, and model railways in particular. I model in O Gauge, fine-scale, standard gauge. My chosen prototype is Australian, primarily New South Wales, both the Government railways and the private/industrial railways. I was previously involved with building and operating Stringybark Greek, and have had some involvement with the Arakoola.

    In the real world, I am a part-time university student, part time Church musician (Sunday services, Weddings, Funerals, etc) and I have several other interests such as involvement in a couple of bands (Drums and Fifes in one, and Pipes and Drums in the other! - Yes I have a kilt!)

    My long-term plans are to building a portable layout, probably a shunting layout a variation of the Inglenook.

    I own an Ixion H-class Manning Wardle. No, I am not interested in selling it.

    G'day Martin, welcome to the forum. Are you still interested in Sydney steam tram motors?

    All the best,

    The tartan is "Oliphant" - mostly blue and green. I'm not a piper, I'm a drummer. As a drummer, I play the traditional instruments for a drummer: side drum and fife/B-flat flute.
