Welcome aboard; it's great to have you here!

The LMS is a splendid choice for a model and there are a few LMS enthusiasts on the Forum.

I look forward to hearing (and seeing, please) more about your layout.


Like you, this is the only internet forum that I've ever joined.

All best wishes.

John

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Hi mpickup :wave: and welcome aboard! :wave:

Thanks for introducing yourself and your layout. Of course now I'm interested and nosey enough to have to ask for picture please!

This was my first (and to date only) forum too. I think you'll find it a friendly and informative community with a terrible taste in jokes. :D :beers:

Hello M, and welcome to the forum :wave:
I always believe the track plan is the most important thing to get right as, if you're not happy with it, it can become tedious and not enjoyable. I have exactly the track plan I want with Peco track. I was unable to use Kato track purely because I couldn't replicate the plan I had and wasn't prepared to make changes, so I know I have it right :)

Thank you people, I'll try to see about a pic soon. The layout is very flat, so a bit boring, but I have 4 lines and any loco can access any part of the layout, so far! Will keep in touch. 😊

Thank you Caz, not sure I'm up to putting plans online, the plan has been a rough sketch followed by repeated "I've got a good idea!" and "I'll just extend the table by 2 feet". At least it all runs at the minute, fingers crossed
