An Introduction
« on: June 07, 2019, 09:21:47 AM »
Good morning all,

Please excuse the rather poor introduction.

I am a modeller in South East England and new-ish to N gauge. Having been more or less an armchair modeller with multiple false starts, I am now starting work on a fairly small layout (1620mm x 405mm).

Welcome aboard Peter.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi and welcome to this friendly forum Peter.
David.
I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

Welcome aboard, Peter.

Best wishes with your project.

You might find this interesting; I know I did.

https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=35556.msg416493#msg416493

It's by a very helpful chap who posts regularly on the Forum.

With best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Peter, after more than a year I'm still more an armchair modeller than a "hands-on" craftsman, but I'm slowly advancing with the advice and guidance of the many members of this Forum who have responded to my many questions.
