Welcome to the forum! :wave:


Firstly, please make sure you read and follow our Code of Conduct. :)

This forum is run by volunteers who have come together to enjoy our hobby and who have created a place for N Gaugers to share their hobby. 

The forum was started by myself in December 2010.  I had some big problems with our first server, but since changing servers we've been able to grow to what we are now.  I'm very pleased with how quickly we've grown, and the friendly atmosphere on the forum.  Well done to all of our members for contributing and making the forum a great place to learn, chat and explore this great hobby.

If you need any help with learning how to use this forum, then please use this link:-

Thanks Tank.  I'm enjoying the forum.  It's a good atmosphere and a fun read as much as it is useful for N gauge info.

Many thanks to you both for getting it up and running.

Hi Nick. I thought I might find you here.

I'm afraid work to my layout is suspended at the moment until I get my other hip replaced but I still enjoy seeing what others are doing.

Best regards,

Trevor.

Hi Trevor,     

Wish you all  the best for the new hip  replacement, great to see you here i  am  planning  a revamp  of my  British layout after  sorting  a good part of it  on Friday.   

I  hope your not in too  much  discomfort to do some  items for the layout such as the coaches if i  remember correctly  you painted in GWR   cream   :thumbsup:

Hi Nick,

I'm on crutches and in a lot of pain at the moment but I have managed to put the Metcalfe Brewery together, including internal beer vats & lighting.

GWR choc. & cream it is but I don't need to paint anything at the moment. Look forward to seeing your revamped layout.

Thanks for the welcome Dave.

Cheers for now,

Trevor.

Hi One and All,

Just found this forum when doing a search for the 3 way point.

I have been into N gauge for more years than I can remember and have attempted at a couple of layouts.

Last month I bought a layout on ebay, supposedly 6' x 3' but went to pick it up and it was 6' x 4'!

Now in the process of changing the trackwork around the excellent scenery.

Regards

Chris
