Hi from Kent

Postby Heisenberg » Tue Jun 03, 2014 10:59 pm

Hi all,

My name is Mike and I am from Platt, near Sevenoaks in Kent. I have been building models from kits for some time now but am getting bored with putting them on shelves to gather dust. I really feel like getting into model railways now and after reading a book and a couple of magazines I feel ready to learn some more and have a real go and building my first railway on a baseboard.

I am planning to pop down to my local MRC this Thursday and have joined a couple of forums inc this one to learn some more.

Be prepared for some stupid questions from this newbie but we all have to start somewhere.

Hi Mike, don't worry about stupid questions, we've all asked a few over the years.

Welcome aboard Mike,

I always thought the stupid thing was NOT to ask questions.

Hello and Welcome, Mike.

Your first railway... on a baseboard.
(Not leaping all the way headfirst into the garden?)

The world is your model mollusc, if starting completely fresh.
Which gives you enough choices that that could be daunting.

A dirty dock or factory with lots of shunting of varied goods wagons, or long elegant expresses cutting through green countryside?
Seriously accurate historical model, or "fun playing with trains"?

There's a sort of 20 questions game that could be played here...

Cheers, Chris.
