Hi all. Great to be here.!

After a hiatus of over 55+ years, I've started a new layout.  So, essentially I'm a newbie to this.  Layout is 'ad hoc' but Hornby 00 Gauge, with several loops, with so many sets of points and power track.

I bought 2 sets, one the Industrial Freight R1228, the other, The Flying Scotsman. R1167. I've also bought a rake of extra track to add to these sets.  I was over rather over ambitious, so have about 20 - 3rd curves left over.

I'm just in the process of wiring the power tracks, of which there are 7. I didn't want to solder odd bits of wire to the rails or fish plates......so it is what it is.......expensive.!

Anyhow. As an old newbie I'll need lots of help and knowledge.👍

Welcome on board Stevo

If you are anywhere near Bray this Saturday drop in to Bray Wheelers clubhouse off the Boghall Road, plenty of advice going for free!

Also a load of trains but sadly not free

Thank you.👍

Not that it's short notice, but travel from the Irish  'outback' is not easy.  Living in the 'back of beyond' has it's disadvantages.😁

It may be just this once*, subject to a double-booking situation.

* best to check in the future.

Hi Guys

The Train & Model Fair this Saturday is a one off, the club house is booked for every Sunday in February for Wheeler's campaign on introducing new cyclists to the club & sport.
