    Thanks for your welcome, I have been trying to model railways for far too many years, started with a Triang Brittania Pullman set in the late 50's at a tender age, had G scale ,OO, HO even a dabble with N. Just in the process of selling my garden railway, another mistake in siting it in our North facing rear garden, so back indoors with a small OO layout.
    Gave up trying to be prototypical after GWR then Southern layouts, now run everything, as I like so many types of locomotives. Recently ventured into old Ringfied Lima and Hornby, can't justify modern prices,and I do like the challenge of fitting DCC without destroying decoders too often!
    Anyway, here to learn and have a chat. All the best Pete

    Great to hear from you Pete, like you I find some of the new prices a bit off putting, especially as I moved over to O gauge, so have started 3D printing my own stock, this old dog is having to learn some new tricks, otherwise 'er indoors will have more than a few words to say on the subject :avatar:

    Looking forward to seeing the results of your endeavours

    Welcome aboard Pete.

    Sounds like you've been round the block a few times. Feel free to post up any photos that you may have. I'm sure there would be a lot of interest.

    Cheers for now

    Toto

    Hello Pete, welcome from Nottinghamshire (although currently in Dorset!)

    sit back and take it in and post a bit more when your ready!

    As to new posts, have a search through the list of topics it would fit under… buildings, track, locos etc… and click new post.
    Simple

    Kindest regards

    Yes the one and only Sydney, I lived in Bexley, Kogarah, Carlton and finally Como West! My Aussie mates were the best I ever had, even though I was Pete the Pom:gday:

    I lived in Bexley, Allawah, Hurstville, Arncliffe and a few more.... Although my high school years were at Peakhurst, but when we moved to Arncliffe, my folks wanted me to go to Kogarah boys...

    Cheers, Gary.

    Kogarah was mixed when I was there (1967), tried looking at Bexley park on street view, can't recognise much at all, there were cricket nets and a football pitch, St Andrews Bexley was my team.

    No more football field, it has been replaced by a cricket pitch !

    Cheers, Gary.
