I'm from Holland, living in the UK and model German.

ERA IV & V  :thumbsup:

Just about finished drawing my layout but think it isn't big enough.  :-\

The outside of the track is 2M x 1M and the room is only 2.2M wide. I'd like to turn the whole room into one big track but I need somewhere to work too.  :hmmm:
I like sitting in my hottub with a beer or two…...

Representation of a Trip to Lyon via TGV and incorporating an alpine panorama into a Coffee table. Track layout well under way and some building materials arrived to day. Busy days ahead.

I started out focused only on mid 90's ECML. But decided I liked trains from other regions/ eras and wanted those on my layout also. I use correct rolling stock for each loco, but have a Virgin Pretendolino running on the same track as a Regional Railways Sprinter or a Intercity Swallow HST for example.

So I guess I am now UK 1985-2005 ish,

I buy whatever trains I like the look of or relate to from my past. The only thing which is really consistent is that I only purchase diesels. Although I may get a stream loco sometime soon. I might end up with a kind of preservation railway kind of theme.

How about going bigger than a 'stream' loco and get a 'River' class  :-X

Modern for me - post 2006, EWS/DBS/Freightliner/London Midland/Virgin for a WCML based layout once I finish making the garage more hospitable!

There was a time when the word 'Modern' applied to any layout on which an occasional box-like thing which had fumes or sparks around the roof area appeared...
My inspiration - never let a setback get you down...

Yes periodically I open a thread with  a 'modern image' tag (more commonly on the 'other' site), and find it's full of boring blue and grey stuff!

My first N Gauge layout 30 years ago was, then, 'Modern Image' BR Blue locos (Class 27, Class 35 Hymek, Class 42 Warship) and Blue and Grey Lima and Minitrix carriages!

For me, I like both steam and diesel, and even though I'm an Aussie, English trains for me have the most appeal. I'm going for British Railways era 4 and 5. I am not fussed if they have early or late logos. When I get around to eventually doing a layout, I would set it in the early 1960s.

I am modeling Welwyn North Station on the Great Northern Mail Line, c.1925-35. At present I am collecting stock and kits to build, planning a layout, and trying to figure out where to build it--I live in a house without a basement, attic or garage! True to scale, within the station limits the trackwork at Welwyn North is about 22 feet long--I will have to condense it considerably, and can get it down to 12 feet or so. I am busy figuring out the various station buildings, and have been making crude coloured card mock-ups to help in my layout and structure planning:

Love the way you are forward planning this layout.
