First of all I would like to thank EVERYONE at Freerails, for bucket loads of inspiration !
Seeing the huge diversity of interests here is quite simply AWESOME.
Since being a member, my railroading horizons have expanded tenfold.
A far cry from the first steps into U.S narrow gauge I made 20 or more years ago.
Back then a few pages a month from imported U.S mags, and the odd book or two, was it.
A Red-Cross 'food parcel' of parts from Stateside just about kept things rolling.
All the little bits & pieces modellers consume, were near impossible to get, for a U.S liking U.K guy.
This is still the case today; & sourcing parts without huge P&P bills, is difficult.
Thanks to 'Coronado' of Arizona & Russ Simpson in particular, for help with this.
Also thanks to the members of the two U.S railroading clubs I went to in the U.K.
Cheers all of you !
Inspired by all of this...

I decided to start a thread for my 1:35 'lint' !

I'm pleased you like the story Woodie.
Always curious to know how people got to where they are; I thought I'd start of with a bit of my story.
Where I've come from, where I wanna go; that kinda thing.
Some more of that to come as well !
" OK Si, whar's the 35n2 layout!!! "
Gimme a chance Chief, I'm only on Post #1; We're not running a prison camp !
All the best.
