Welcome to the hobby - hopefully you will find it as rewarding as the rest of us. One slight caution. Many a modelling project has fallen foul of starting too big. Just because you have 4m x 3m doesn't mean you have to fill it all immediately. A smaller project [eg a 2m x 0.5m loco depot] will enable you to develop skills, make mistakes [though we all keep doing those] and have something finished in a reasonably short time. Design it so it could fit into the larger project and time is not wasted. Equally by then, you find your interests have changed, but it will still be good experience.

Hi einstine and welcome


Have you checked out the OS Website for maps (they have old ones) of your target?


If you are travelling at the speed of light on a train and your looking back at the town clock, and the clock hands don't move.... what puzzles me is where are you going, and where did all the track come from??


.....could not resist!
