Sorry, guys. I'll check with the 'Keeper of the Scrolls' @Only Me

I just accessed the link in the OP with no issue so perhaps you need over 25,000 posts to gain access :D

I think it's time for me to make my initial statement in the Forum, and as I'm still in the layout planning stage, I suppose this is the right place. First, something about me. I shall turn 80 this summer, have not built a layout since 1976, have no experience with electrical wiring, and don't understand much of what I am intending to attempt. My objective is to build an 8' x 4' layout based on an English GWR rail junction, c. 1938-42 over the next two years. I've already acquired several locomotives, and some 40 wagons - so I am serious! When I have a better understanding of the Forum site I'll post my plan (which is a work in progress). Without giving it a name, I think there will be some of you who will recognize the location. I'll be laying Kato track. I'm open to comments - encouraging or critical. Oh, btw, I live in the United States but have lived in Scotland and am writing from Edinburgh where my wife and I are visiting family.

Leon, I know very little about wiring either. After a frustrating start, I switched to Kato track and never looked back. Mine is a funny dogbone shaped layout about 12 feet long at its maximum and the plug and play aspect of using Kato track and the built in point motors has been a godsend. I spend hours watching anything up to 5 trains simultaneously trundling around DCC controlled by an NCE Powercab.

Good luck with your new layout.

Alec.

Hi Leon.
Welcome aboard from another to whom electricity is a complete mystery.
Iím intrigued to learn the location of your GW location.
I await a description of the layout with interest.
Enjoy Edinburgh.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

Welcome aboard, Leon, from a Forum member just south of Edinburgh!  I hope you are enjoying your time in Scotland.

Kato 'Unitrack' is excellent.

The GWR is a really good choice to model.  Union Mills does three lovely GWR locomotives which run well and are not expensive.

The following link to another part of the Forum might help with your layout planning; it certainly helped me.

http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=35556.msg416493#msg416493

Best wishes.

John

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.
