Hello from France
« on: June 11, 2019, 06:10:30 PM »
Hi all,

I'm new here though not to N gauge. I'm a Brit living in France, no it's not as sunny as people make out  :no: I model mostly 1/160th Canadian Pacific but dabble in most things 'N' A current sideline project is 1/150th Japanese !
I'll catch up with you on the forum some time.

Thank's

Tom
Thanks

Tom

Welcome to the forum Tom.

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

Welcome aboard, Tom.

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.

Are you the tomcook who has shown off some pretty cool builds on Nscale.net?

https://www.nscale.net/forums/showthread.php?45869-The-Canadian-Pacific-Mallet-build

If so, I'm sure the good people here would love to see some of these.

Bonjour Tom,
Welcome to the forum.
You probably couldn't get more 'la France profonde' than the Ariège. What are you doing out there, if I may ask?
