Just checking in to say hello.

I live on the Hebridean island of Islay which is great for whisky, but not for access to model shops, model railway clubs or shows.

In my retirement, I have returned to the hobbies of my childhood, amateur radio (MM0UMH) and (recently) model trains. I've only just started putting my layout together and I suspect that I will be looking for a fair bit of advice.

Les

Hi Les and a warm welcome to our band of brothers, where you'll find plenty of help and encouragement with your railway.

Although I live in a wine producing village (have just returned from a vineyard visit), I have a great fondness for your local produce, including the gin!

Have a good look around the threads and archives and do tell us of your plans.

Best,

Bill

:WelcomeA big Welcome:Welcome from someone who used to live in the Outer Hebridies, and a year ago tomorrow, inherited a layout built on Tiree. http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=14902&forum_id=21&highlight=tiree
It shows what can be achieved out there.

Which reminds me I must do some updates to the thread..

Welcome to the Club Les from a very cold and blustery spain.

A great bunch of lads and lasses on here.

We would all be interested to know what scale and era you will be modelling.

Gary

Thank you Gary. And thanks to all for the welcome messages. I'm modelling LMS in 00 gauge, era 3. Still very much at the early stages, but I shall post some photos as I go along.

This gets better and better Les - not only am I looking at a bottle of your very own whisky (50% proof no less) as I type this , but you're also modelling LMS - that's almost LNER ...................................

I presume my whisky came from your village ......................... :roll:

A very warm welcome to the mad-house.  Have a look around then, when you need to, ask away - someone on here will be able to answer whatever - there's a wealth of knowledge, experience and skill  amongst our members, every one of whom will be delighted to help.

Thank you Peter. Yes, we are only a hundred yards or so from Bruichladdich Distillery and when the wind is in the right direction, I can stand outside my door and sniff the fumes. :-)

I'm putting a distillery on my Tiree layout, extremely tempted to hide a small pot of whisky (cheap and nasty not my malt) and a small fan underneath to funnel the fumes up the chimney, could do with some peat fumes as well...

 It would be interesting to see the publics reaction at a show...
