Welcome!

When I moved to Los Angeles more than a few years ago, I was complimented by a lady on how well I spoke English. When I pointed out I was, actually, you know, English, she said, surprised, that she thought everyone from Europe spoke French.

She probably works from the Trump administration now.

Welcome to the forum, I too was born in Norfolk. Albeit in the borders, but thankfully Thetford is Norfolk. I now live in Watton, which I understand is where my nan was born.  You will find lots of helpful people on this forum, especially if you're into kit/scratch building. Although you will find the standard of rtr stock is now very high in n gauge, as good as OO perhaps? Anyway good luck & look forward to seeing some layout/stock pics soon.

Watton , the home of Eastern Radar,  that was,  I used to talk to them over the microwave links from RAF Neatishead. .
I wonder why there is a radar planned for my layout..

Not sure they would come out to well as you can't get near them anymore. However you can clearly see the landing lights & the crash barriers made of straw bales  :D
