A French newbie aboard

Postby Boischaut » Wed Oct 12, 2016 11:28 am

Hello there,
I really like model railroading but unfortunately I'm a real newbie. I need a full wagon load of advices and a few helping hands.
I'm very happy to be a new member of this great community. See you soon !
And now, it's up to you. Please don't be too cruel...

Welcome aboard. No restriction on overseas modellers here. But do watch out for the British sense of humour. Often what at first reads like a criticism is meant as a compliment. (the phrase is "a Back-Handed Compliment" receiving one is usually seen as a sign of acceptance and frienship.)

Thanks for your friendly welcome / Merci pour votre accueil amical. :D
French humour is also a very special kind of humour ! :lol:

I'm curious to know what gauge/scale you're thinking about starting with.
The most popular are 'N' and '00' for British outline, but 'HO' for Continental,
in fact every other country - we do like to be different !!

We do have one modeller who has this thing about French railways, works in
'N' I'll edit later with a link.

Later pages show some interesting French stock !!

I'm planning to build a small roundy round H0 layout with a DC power supply...and that's all !
No particular era or area. Just my favorite rolling stock.
