Newbie
« on: Yesterday at 01:15:59 PM »
Greetings from the far West of Cornwall, 61 year old cripple who has just decided to build a layout for the first time. Just starting to get together stuff to build an N gauge setup based around Marazion station in the 60s just before it was shut down.  My Father used to have a layout all alongside two walls of his garage but all of that was given away when he passed on years ago, I don't intend to be as ambitious as that but never say never cos I only have my cat to worry about!  Have a few enquiries out with local carpenters/joiners to build me a table with a lid in which to build my layout without the cat getting on it, and allowing my wheelchair to fit under it, but have had no responses thus far.

Hi Mike,

You will find us a friendly and helpful bunch. Just fire away with any questions and rest assured someone on here will be able to help you. There is a vast range of N gauge knowledge on this forum.

Welcome aboard Mike.
Great to have another From West Cornwall on here.
There’s a few of us West of Truro so welcome to the gang.
Just ask away if you need any help.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Welcome to the forum Mike. (I thought it was mandatory to have a cat if one wanted to join the forum?  ???).

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Welcome aboard!

Please be aware that we also need a resumé of the cat.

We're all a bit odd really.

I can explain it to you...
