Hi Pete

Welcome to the Forum.  My grandparents all come from Crook and moved to Annfield Plain where I was born so I know it quite well.  You'll be well supported on this very friendly and helpful group.  I've found it invaluable since my return to railway modelling.

 :thankyousign: all for your welcoming comments. I have made a 6' 8" X 3' 0" base topped in polystyrene ( for ease in experimenting with various track plans. ) the trouble is at the moment I am suffering from a bad case of indecision as to the final layout, and comments from the Memshaib don't help matters. The era will be anywhere from the 1930s to the late 1940s, something else yet to be finally decided upon. So from time to time I hope to publish a few photo's of the disasters and Large Chicken :) ups that will know doubt occur. So once again thanks.

Sounds good!
Try mocking something up in SCARM track planning software to see if it all fits BEFORE you buy all the track bits - Free and easy to learn...I just followed the YouTube video tutorials.

Welcome, Pete.

Don't worry about asking questions, the sentiment here is that there are no stupid questions (actually there are, notably the ones I ask). I've had a ton of help, advice and encouragement from the folks here.

We're a curious bunch, so please check back and update us on plans, progress, and even the Memsahib's gradual appreciation of what you're doing. When I started on my layout last year, my wife was grateful that I'd actually begun construction, her comment was "Thank god you've started building something. I was worried you'd die and I'd be stuck wondering where to sell this stuff".
