New Starter - Hants
« on: September 09, 2019, 14:47:46 »
Afternoon all, just joined up after finding a reference on youtube. I am embarking on a modification of a 5258 locomotive and if that goes well, I am looking to knock up a Ffestiniog double-Fairlie (reminiscent of at least) for the garden railway. I'll let you know how I get on but  I may be on here a lot for assistance. I have two small boys which is my excuse but it's been great to get all my old Playmobil from my parent's loft. Here goes!
If ignorance is bliss- I should be ecstatic

Welcome from Portugal!

I don't really know anything of trains, but I am looking forward to following your project :)

Welcome from Munich, Bavaria, DE! I hope you'll like it here.

This community is only small, but there are disproportionately many ultra-experienced train collectors aboard - perhaps close to half of the active members. Quite remarkable, really, but good for you! I hope you'll find fruitful exchanges.

Looking forward to follow your projects.

Best wishes
StJohn

A warm welcome from \North Yorkshire!  :wave:   

Your Fairlie project sounds very interesting.  I've sometimes looked at a couple of my 0-4-0 tanks and wondered along those lines.

A late welcome from me from Stroud in Gloucestershire. I missed your first post, but read your second one! I'm not a PM train collector, it's one theme I have managed to avoid (for the health of my bank account!), but as StJohn said, there are quite a few train experts on PF!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)
