morning from bridlington

Postby koyli55002 » Sun Nov 22, 2020 6:40 am

HELLO well i must say iv been out the game a decade and things haven't slowed down while i was away so a little about myself,
My name is Liam 27 and currently in the Bridlington area.
as a kid i grew up with model railways with my huge collection of 48 different class 37s, at 18 started chasing women buying motorbikes and playing real trains skip forward 9 years and we come to today, i recently got married and have 5 children (4 step kids) and moved in together we are started our life then the unavoidable covid.
well at the start of lockdown I had gone from working full time making replica nameplates to deciding not to drive because of eye sight issues and after a lot of digging about got a diagnosis of relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis at the end of April and since my health has declined to a point i cant walk unaided. a few months of self pity latter and i start building my life back up learning to live how i can, when my little boy started watching railway videos with me on tv the light bulb illuminated and reluctantly my wife let me put a 8x4 board on the table and build a little railway and its just reignited the interest i used to have and wish to share my adventures in model railways with people and now with more time, i have decided to maybe look at other avenues to review items on a YouTube channel or something but not for a long time haha.

anyway i will stop there all that jabbering on, I hope to learn and maybe even forbid give a little advice.

Welcome aboard. That’s quite a collection of 37s, do you still have them?

Welcome. Do you still have your models to fall back on or are you needing to make a fresh start?

hi guys thanks for the warm welcome looks like my bigger layout will be sooner than expected, email from an estate agent means we are applying for a house.
unfortunately i sold all my model stuff at 18 kick myself hard now but started slowly building up a few bits a dapol 68 and western, the bachmann dcc mk2f the Hatton's RHTT and the MK5 on order for a tpe 68 so at the moment a long way from a full fleet of tractors again.
