I'm hoping that the N Gauge Forum will be a place I can visit for sage advice, inspiration and hopefully some laughs along the way.

Hi Chuffed2bits, and welcome to the forum :wave:
You'll get plenty of the above here. Who knows? Amidst the sage there may also be some turmeric and coriander.
I note the 'plan' is going to be based on Taff Vale c.1900 but what do you intend to run on the plan?
I, too, have my mancave in the conservatory but I live alone so have no 'authorites' to have to consult/put thumbprints into my head.

Hi
I have just joined the Forum. Iíve modelled in N for years, as a boy then left then come back to it in last few years, building a tail chaser for my three boys. Trouble is it is taking me AGES as I keep thinking of new things to add! The oldest has no left home but I still have the other two sort of interested!

Itís also a bit of a test bd for me to get my skills back and build up some long forgotten experience. My layout is analogue DC, Iíve bought some old Minitrix locos second hand (plus my old set was Minitrix). I also bought a second hand A4 Dalpol steamer and some new Grafar locos. The layout is 4ftx6ft and designed to fit on top of a mini pool table but can be lifted off and store away- this means limited wires/fittings under the baseboard. It has a few hidden sidings at the rear and the split levels for interest with a disguised double helix to get up there! I tried to keep the curves down to minimum No 2 = 263mm, 10 3/8 inch set track but I think a few of my flexi curves are borderline! This is bugging me with some of the GF locos and the Dalpol A4 but the Minitrix are fine.

I am keen to try DCC in the future but for now will stick with analogue until I learn more. Iíve got plenty of old school dead sections and 2x double H&M controllers. Iíve got 95% of the track don and my youngest son and I are going to start ballast in soon and putting up scenery. Iíll try and load some photos soon when I figure out how to do that on the Forum.

In the meantime nice to meet you all!

Welcome to the forum Darrwest.

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Welcome aboard, Darrwest.

Your electrical arrangements sound a bit like mine (which work fine).

All the best.

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.
