Hello!

#1

Post by francescam »

Hi, my name is Francesca and I am a 20 year old international student in Glasgow. My whole life I have been passionate about trains, started off as just a railway enthusiast but now starting as a beginner hobbyist with my first project layout.

I joined this forum because I am seeking good advice and in general just to meet other rail fans! I don't know anyone my age or female who is interested and I would really appreciate engaging with some that as me found happiness in this world! Hope you are all doing well and if you know of any sites I should check or groups near Glasgow I could join I would appreciate the tips!

Hello, thanks for the welcome! The set I got was Hornby R.671 Country Local OO gauge, which features a LMS Jinty 0-6-0 16440 steam locomotive. The reason for this being my first purchase is that the original 47357 was built in Glasgow and felt like it was meant to be! I also just acquired today a Freight Hauler set and a LNER 8473 locomotive which should be arriving next week!
