Another "mature age" guy starting a new layout after many years.

I really like the LNER locos, so that's mainly what I will be running.

The layout is in a room 30ft x 11ft, and is actually up and running albeit with basically no scenery. Not even a name yet !

I'll be starting a page in the Members Personal Layout section really soon.

So.. Hi ALL .  from down under.  Looks like a really good web site you have here :-)

And in the last few minutes, I have come up with a name for the layout..  because I needed one before I could post. ;-)

I thought of  "Graddsden" . Gradds is my nickname, and its my den.. corny hey.  (maybe use a single "d")   "Gradsden", what do you think?

Then I wondered if there was an actual town called that, and found Gaddesden, in Hertforshire, with some great pics and ideas, and its in the LNER region.

So.. a very profitable morning  :-)

Of your suggestions Andy, I like "Gradsden" - it sort of sounds right.  You could add a "Junction" or "Town" or whatever you have there - e.g. "Gradsden Colliery", "Gradsden New Town" , "Gradsden Junction" etc. etc. .............

30 x 11ft....I'm not jealous, oh no....I hope you keep leaving the solder and soldering iron at opposite ends of the room, Hmph!

Welcome &Hi from Brisbane. I also love the LNER REGION. I am a newer modeler in the hobby with some keen grandsons. We are learning together. If you're ever in Queensland, you must come to our club on the Gold Coast.

Like a cheese.. "mature" means it has grown more mould  :mrgreen:

When the body can't always do what the mind says it wants to...   which some people mistake for wisdom. :twisted:

Chuckle.  We say "when I getarountoit"  which can be interpretted similarly.

It's a big layout, methinks it will develop very slowly.

Layout page started, in case people haven't seen it

G'day Andy,

Good to see another Aussie on board !
Mature eh ? As they say, 'Growing old is compulsary, growing up is a choice...'
So the room is 11' x 30', WOW! that's enough room to run LMS, GWR and SR...

Cheers,

Gary.
