Default Brand new to model railways

Hello,

I have had an interest in model railways for a long time, but have never been able to do anything about it. I have had quite a few personal changes in the past few months, and have decided a long term hobby is a great way to focus the mind.

I have nothing in my possession that it model railway related, and will be starting from the very beginning.

I am based in the North East of England, and from what I have read already on here, you seem a very helpful, funny and informative group.
