    Thanks for the welcome,

    I am on sunny Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Australia. I rejuvenated my model railway hobby when I retired 4 years ago.

    I have since built a 00 layout based on the transition period of BR. The layout is sparse on scenery but high in operating interest. I use Railroad and Co software to control the layout and can have upwards of 10 trains running simultaneously. The object is to have trains running while I shunt in one of the yards or the terminus.

    I am about to embark on a 0 gauge shelf layout above the existing OO. That is currently at the planning stage. It will depict a military depot in 1944.

    Very I pressive Brian. Thanks for posting this up.

    You are just in time with your military theme as there will be a competition kicking off soon and it has a military cameo theme. I'll need to get the final details up soon. I hope you join in. There will be a prize of some sort up for grabs.

    Looking forward to following your projects.

    Again, thanks for joining us.

    :gday: and :welcome: Brian to Platform1
    I’m sure the members will be very interested in you layouts and the way you run trains with RR&Co having seen it in action, it’s quite amazing to see the process of trains running timetabled around whilst you shunt a yard. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    G'day Brian,

    Nice layout. If I'm correct this is the layout that I attended a small running session a while back with Chris. You have done a lot since then and I'm positive the lads here will enjoy your story behind the layout. Enjoy the camaraderie and banter that is P1MRC.

    Cheers, Gary.

    Gary,

    Yes it is that layout. Yes quite a bit of change since then and bit more development of Train controller.

    You should come around for another session.

    Cheers

    Brian
