    G'day Matador,

    Welcome aboard from Sydney. Get yourself settled in, have a good look around, read up and then get posting. Looking forward to reading about your modelling, painting, dcc installs or what you currently have on the workbench. Enjoy the camaraderie and banter that is P1MRC.

    Cheers, Gary.

    Let’s just have some photos of the NSR loco and the Claughton as a start... have a look through the threads and find a topic they suit.

    Welcome to the forum. I see you have a GT3 model gas turbine loco, which I also have, mine built from a British "Golden Arrow" kit and using Chris Gibbons chassis. Is yours built from the same kit or scratch built.
