Hello everyone My name is Annie and I live in New Zealand. I come from a railway family and I've been nuts about everything to do with railways, - particularly steam era railways, - for as long as I can remember. I've had a go at most scales and gauges, but due to aging eyesight and chronic illness I work in 16mm scale these days with a particular interest in mining and timber tramways.
Being no longer flexible enough to be crawling under baseboards hunting for wiring faults I've given up on track power and much prefer to run my locos on batteries with hand in the cab type control methods. This is fine for my larger 45mm gauge locos, only at present I'm looking at building some smaller 16.5mm gauge models and I'd like to find out more about using radio control. Friends on the Narrow Gauge Railway Modelling Online forum have mentioned Free Rails to me so I here I am.
Howdy Annie, welcome to the site. Just ask any question and if someone doesn't answer with the right information then I will write something silly. Yes, if you are investigating radio control then this is the place for CORRECT info.
