Hullo there, and welcome to my new blog. As you may or may not have gathered, it’s a blog on the subject of railways, and in particular model ones.
I should probably tell you a bit about myself. While I’m not exactly new to the hobby (I got my first Hornby train set at the age of three – like most addictions, the dealers like to catch you at a young age), I have up until recently been an armchair modeller. I read the magazines, surfed the web and even occasionally bought items for the Great Future Layout, but never really got going on any particular project. I’ve recently started work on a micro-layout and this time it’s going to get finished… eventually. So, relatively speaking, I’m a beginner.
This blog isn’t just intended to give you a blow-by-blow account of my modelling exploits. It’s also a place for general musings on the hobby and occasional items of interest that I find. Also, having gotten into the habit of carrying a camera with me, it’s a place for snapshots of things that might be useful or interesting to others in the hobby.
So, that’s a brief overview of me and what to expect from my shiny new blog. I’ve never been much good at wrapping these things up, so I suppose I’d better finish with a cheesy rail-related pun. Er… “Right away!”
