Newbie alert!!

Postby Graham1 » Sun Aug 04, 2013 8:46 pm

Hi people,
I've just registered on this forum and have just had the official email to say that the account is now active so here I am, My name is Graham and I live in the Cambridgeshire area, I'm in the first phases of building my layout which will be approx. 12' x 6' and is OO gauge. It will not be a true out and out model railway depicting a certain age or region, it will be based on anything I like as regards rolling stock so anything will be seen running - up to a point anyway, nothing too modern, probably up to the 70 -80's and obviously before. So maybe more of a train set than a model railway.

I know virtually nothing about railways - what goes with what but that doesn't matter me as to me I don't want it to be too serious - I have enough 'Seriousness' at work and when I come home I just want to enjoy myself building it. Having said that I do know that it will be nicely detailed and look the part to the novice like me.

OK, that's enough of the intro, I have a Youtube channel where I uploaded a few videos of my layout so far including some where I didn't have my layout earlier this year and was running some of my early rolling stock on the kitchen floor!!

Youtube link here: http://www.youtube.com/user/GrahamFouls ... _as=public

I will post up in the correct part of the forum my progress so far on my layout.

Graham

Hehe!! I've been looking for the edit button too and I can't find it - I don't think there is one so a quick check of spelling is the order of the day on this forum I think and you're right, I have been having a good look round and it does look good, except for the lack of the edit button. :D

@ Woodywood I'll mention again the missing Edit buttons. I think they are on a to do list somewhere. :)

Have a look at ''View Your Posts''. I am sure the edit button is shown on your post on that page.?

Well I've just had a look and to be honest I can't see an edit button but that doesn't mean there isn't one, my wife is always telling me I'm as blind as a bat!!

Hi everyone. My name's alan and i'm new here too. I have just started my new layout and its based loosely on the rocky mountains region of the USA. It is a 10ft x 4ft L shape and has a 2ft timber trestle bridge which i painstakingly designed and built, a custom made turntable, a passing loop and 2 freight lines on the back straight and will eventually have a lumber yard and saw mill and a coal/gold mine built into a mountainside. As i'm fairly new to the hobby you'll probably see me popping up in carious thread asking questions about best practices and tips on scenery etc but hopefully i wont annoy anyone! Just a newbie trying to learn the more difficult aspects of the hobby!
