Hi all

Been lurking for a while and have now finally got round to start putting my layout together.
My knowledge about trains is 0, but for a while now I have wanted to build a city type model.

At first I was planning to do a static model with no movement what so ever, but after a while I decided that might get boring real quick, so after some research and with limited space it was only logical for me to go n scale and add some trains.

At first I convinced myself that it would be a really nice thing for me and my 4 year old nephew to do together, but who am I kidding? It's going to be all mine, although I may allow him to admire from a safe distance!

Matt

Welcome aboard Matt.
You’ll have great fun building your layout and no doubt you’ll have loads of questions so do ask away.
Remember , no question is a stupid question.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Matt and welcome to the forum. You are definitely going the right way - static models are nice to look at ...... and look at. Building a layout is much more fun as you will have realised being a 'lurker'.  There are plenty of talented and knowledgeable people on the forum, so when you are ready, ask away.  :thumbsup:

Welcome to our friendly forum Matt, great to have you on board and look forward to seeing your plans etc in due course. 

Have you decided what you're going to model yet, period, country, region etc?

Hello Matt, and welcome aboard :wave:
Here's a great urban type layout which may give you some inspiration. What I really like is the railway running above some of the buildings..........

Yes, this is an excellent urban model by the NGS journal editor. Possibly a little ambitious as a first project, but inspiring nevertheless.

While being very well modelled (the flats and balconies in the middle background are brilliant), with glimpses of what I presume are St Paul's and Battersea Power Station in the background, what spoils it for me is the church and towerblock sticking up above the background.

It draws attention to the edge of the world. Well, mine, anyhow. Maybe not other people.

Nevertheless, something for Matt to aspire to.

Thanks all for the welcome

I have started a thread in layout construction called "A learning journey". No doubt I will have plenty of questions along the way.
