Thank you for allowing me to play along.

My name is Dan Cooper,
and I have been a modeller for more than 50 years.

I've built all kinds of static and flying models over the years,
and as a younger man had a few HOn30 layout attempts.

About 15 years ago I started a G-scale garden railway,
in the garden of my first home.

This lasted for a few years, but need packing away,
when my wife and I moved to our present home.

Fast forward though some very busy working years,
to today, where I now find myself close to retirement age.

With cash, time and space to take up railroading again.
This time inside a nice warm bungalow.

I have made a small start,
on a shelf switching layout in G-scale.

I hope to be able to add a little bit to this Forum,
as I have been a looker for some time.

Thanks for looking in.

Welcome Daniel, to this great Forum.

Good to see another Aussie getting back into the hobby.

Ask any questions you like,
you may even get a responsible intelligent answer.

As for the room and time, that's a great asset,
as for the cash, buying trains will fix that.


Look forward to seeing some Posts & pics.
of your progress as you go along.


I aspire to inspire before I expire.
