A very warm welcome to the club Alan.

I take my hat off toy you having the skill to build locos - it's something I'd really love to do but have way too many other demands on my time to be able to spend it learning how to do it.  I'm told it can be "fiddly" and that's enough to make me look the other way.  If Roger (Fortytwo) thinks he has podgy fingers, he's got nothing on me !!

Enjoy yourself looking around and, when you're ready, let us know what you're planning to do. :cheers

Hi Petermac,

Thank you. I've already started with my narrow gauge layout thread.

Building locomotives is something that I have found I can only do when I "feel" in the right frame of mind. Otherwise I leave alone as it is all too easy to mess something up (especially with regard to white metal castings). Consequently it can take me ages to actually complete a kit. Unlike some of the masters like Tony Wright, I only have one on the go at a time and I don't have asbestos fingers!

Bending curves in the footplate is also very tricky for me - I do have a PDK D16 4-4-0, ideal for my GE theme, but trying to bend the footplate around the driving wheels was driving me mad and the kit has never progressed. Then Hornby came to my rescue and released a RTR model!
