Hi Paul, and welcome to the forum :wave:

Being a nosy lot, we'd like to hear more about your intentions in N, such as space available, DC/DCC, location, era etc.
In the meantime have a read of this. It's pretty basic but could help you avoid some pitfalls........

Hi All, thanks for the welcomes.

I値l start a  layout thread soon to explain what I知 planning but it痴 basically a 都helf in the man cave. A simple oval where only have us visible from the main side of the wall. The other half is accessible but not on display so the trains will disappear through the wall at one end and appear from a hole in the wall the other. It痴 approximately 2.2m x 0.6m (split down the middle by the wall) so 2.2m x 300mm will be visible and decorated.

I値l also be using Arduino to control it and I have a few ideas for how to add some features electronically that I知 looking forward to trying out and experimenting with.

There are quite a few of us here interested in Arduino. Looking forward to seeing and hearing of your ideas in this regard.  :thumbsup:
