Title: Hi from Northern Ireland :D
Post by: R80DVY on March 08, 2020, 09:59:39 PM
Hi Guys, cheers for having me on board and apologies in advance for all the future questions I will be bugging you with!

Short intro being that I have a young cousin and uncle that are very interested in trains and having their own 00 layout, I wanted one of my own, for a few reasons, I love model building and painting, I may not be any good, but I love it and the same with wiring, being a Forklift Engineer/Low Loader Operator, I love wiring, so have a few ideas in mind for my layout :)

So, cheers for having me ladies and gents!

Hi again guys, appreciate the warm welcome! I haven't been a member of a forum for years!

Hi R80DVY and welcome.

By even joining a forum that makes me nosy also! :D I Am pretty confused by which era I want to go for, I love the idea of diesel sheds, but love being able to run older stuff, so I'm thinking of designing my layout like one of the local private railways (Downpatrick & County Down Railway) So I can have the weird, wonderful and interesting all in one place without them looking stupid and being able to keep my trackside to the modern era :)

Hi Pal, I'm Portadown based, but work as a lowloader driver for a Forklift leasing company, so travel all over Ireland :) For example, tomorrow I head to Dublin for a few drops, then overnight in Dublin then for Limerick Wednesday :)  Just from browsing after registering I can see the talent and helpfulness, cheers for having me :D

Space is yet to be determined, I am lucky enough to have bought a 3 bedroom home with an office extension with my fiance last year, since having no kids, I have claimed the office as my man cave, as she has a bedroom as her makeup and nail studio, but I have yet to decide if I want to create something to take to shows, something I can pack up to take to my cousins, at this point, I'm gathering the initial design process can be quite stressful!

I like what DCC can provide, but I think DC will give more of a challenge with sensors and switches! 

Cheers again everyone :)
