Hi, my name is Chris.

I live in SW France, retired in Oct 2018,
started modelling with trains in 2020, in HO, then Trix express.


I am now venturing into Garden rail.

I have an area 25m by 5m behind the house,
but first I need to install a pondless waterfall.

The aim is to build a backwoods sawmill, mine and quarry,
and have real water in the log pond.


It's going to take several years,
mainly due to lack of money.

But I will get there.

Chris

Welcome Chris

Sounds like you know what you want to do,
some pics as you go along would be great.

Sounds like a very interesting project.

As for the money, most of us have that problem,
and when you do get some,
a model train shop will gladly take it of you.

There is always something you need.

:f: :2t:

...................Peter

Chris, are you another British expat ?
I know of several living on your side of the Channel.

My wife and I visited France,
not long before thel fire at Notre Dame,
so glad we got to see the insides then,
and spent some very nice time in Marseille.

Welcome to the Forum,
feel free to post photos of your work,
we'd love to see it !
