Greetings to all!

Herb suggested I post a hello & introduce myself... so here goes!

Complete novice model railroader but prior experience with electronics & RC cars, also some AMC plastic kit building many, many years ago.

Currently building a 5m x 4m HO (1/87th) diorama of the Foxton Branch of the Foxton-Manawatu Railway set in approx 1881.

Will post photos of progress and look forward to sharing/hearing/reading ideas...

Kind Regards

Julie Smith

Howdy Julie, welcome to Freerails. Wow, building a railroad circa 1881, that's great! We would love to see photos of your work, please send em' when you can. Don't be shy, have fun here.

Woodie

BTW-since you know about electronics & r/c...we have plenty of info about these subjects. Check them out.
