hello to all
« on: September 13, 2020, 04:03:58 PM »
Hello to all the n gaugers out there, I have just joined the forum,.
I got back into n gauge about 18 months ago, when my partner saw my 'box of trains' we now have a 4'x2' layout that we built whilst being locked down, I had a lot of bits and pieces in storage and it turns out that my partner is better at metcalfe kits than me so that's her job now. David

Welcome to the Forum, David and partner.

I hope you are both having lots of fun with 'N' gauge.

Best wishes.

John

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 1930s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

Welcome to the friendly forum David and partner.  I really like Metcalfe kits and once you, (or in this case 'partner'), get into a bit of kit bashing, you can make them look a bit less like everybody elses Metcalfe kits.  :thumbsup:

Okay, what is 'partners' real name?

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

Like you, Dave, my wife does the Metcalfe stuff. I just top the wine up and pass tools, etc.

Welcome to the forum. Friendliest on the web I reckon.  :beers:
