I am 21 and some months.

  I am old enough to know better and still young enough to do do it.

 Cheers

Well I just changed my vote. I had a birthday last month. It's kind of sad to move forward 10 years with a single click.

Too old to see the keyboard or too young to read.

So I see that most are too young to have played with Hornby clockwork in the 50s. Brother & I bought ours as soom as possible post the war. Had 2 attics on top floor where we could keep layouts.
My brother managed to find a boxed set of same vintage for me 2 years ago (what great value compared to modern prices), so sparked my interest. Then I discovered there were electric trains of same vintage and older.

My first, late 1930s, was a Hornby 0 gauge clockwork 0-4-0T  followed a year later by a somewhat incorrect Flying Scotsman (as a 4-4-2!!) 20V AC electric.

Just found this - oops.  Just turned 60 (ecch!).  I was remarking to my friend only today how so many of the old gang that contribute to MRJ must be in their 60s.

Youngsters aren't exactly flocking to the hobby.  Yet somehow the manufacturers seem to have a business case and more are joining in too (Oxford and DJ Models).  Wonder how long it will last.

John

Well, just to get the number up, I voted!
I'm now 51 but have been in this hobby since I was about 7 y.o. Blimey! All that time and my best layout was a plywood central!
John.

PS It's really good to see some members are over 80, any takers for over 90?
