Default Thanks Guys

So looking forward to sharing my project and learning from more experienced modellers than myself.The layout is DC mainly due to the age of some stock .Did consider DCC but maybe later I could change.
It has three levels,mainline,Colliery traffic and a suburban/local line. A lot crammed into a small space ,6 trains operating at once!!.I do enjoy the craft side of our hobby but also get great pleasure in just watching the trains go by.
Will post some pics along with many Questions.Looking forward to the interaction.

Hi there and welcome. I am of little help as I was never a railway worker but I am enjoying looking at others layouts. Your's looks very good with at least three levels so there is some inspiration. I look forward to seeing more.
Jim.

Hi Jim Thank you for the welcome.Sitting in my chair I can view all three levels.The top level hides the lower circuits thus I just see the trains go by,as opposed to "around".Very pleased with the amount of movement going in a limited small area.will post more pics in due course
