Hi Antipodean and welcome to the forum. There are plenty of talented and knowledgeable people on 'ere, so any questions you may have, (even the daft ones  ;)), somebody will be able to provide answers.  :thumbsup:

Footnote:  :) I used to be young once.
Footnote footnote, If I had read your post properly, I would have said "Hi David", (from another David).  :)

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

Hi David, and welcome to the forum.
I don't know what 'Podes' are but we have lots of members from the Anti-Podes among our number.
Make sure you ask questions before spending your money as this forum can, and will, save you money, time and angst.

G'day, Antipodean, and welcome to the NGF!  :thumbsup:

Sunshine Coast, huh?

I spent a couple of weeks up there in the Glasshouse Mountains back in 2001, helping a bloke build a OO layout!  :beers:

In fairness, I didn't originally sign my post with my name; I only realised after the fact, so I went back and edited it. And this forum has already answered some of my questions; whenever I consulted Mr. Google & Sons about something related to British N gauge, threads from this forum appeared quite regularly.

I was suddenly curious about the etymology of the word, and apparently antipodes is from the Greek for "feet opposite" as in standing on the other side of the globe. The '-podes' part is the root for feet; see 'podiatry'.

Welcome aboard Antipodean

Thank goodness for that - I am just 'older', not senile.  :)

That's because, with over 7800 members worldwide, it's the place to be :)
There's the most enormous amount of knowledge among 'the collective' and you will be assimilated very quickly.

Don't worry David, it does not hurt - apart from your wallet!  :)

More of a Whovian than a Trekkie, but it's familiar enough that I can surely say that that was terrible.
