Hi Mark,

would be nice if Tom, Dick, Harry and Charlie could find their way to Sudbury-on-Sea (otherwise known as Potsdam :D ).

Cheers,
Michael

I can say now that I would be up for it, having now obtained two n gauge locos, and just waiting to finish an ebay transaction and then i can buy myself my double track oval and sidings, do i need scenery to take part??

dont think you will Alex, but i think it may be a few week befor the vans are on there way, so hopefully by the time there off you could have some scenery work done, and there some painting need done to the vans mainly roofs and sides and the blue stripe,

but aslong as you have a loco and track then its fine

Woo :D My track is in the post, waiting for it to turn up, I have a platform kit to build too :) Sadly I could only afford a double oval and no sidings but that's miles better than nothing :D hopefully have more than 2 locos by the time they arrive at mine too :P

I have a double oval with sidings, a station and factory so far so i have something proper to run them on at least now even if it isnt more than track on a board and a few buildings :)
