Thanks Nev for having my Dad and I over to look at your layout and talk trains for a few hours on Saturday. It was good to meet you and hear about how you got your layout together and how you got into model railways.

Following on from that I built my table today for my first layout. Only a simple 2.4m x 1.2m one for my first try. It is hard to stay focussed and not let myself get side tracked with all the interesting goodies I could put in. *grin*

Kim,
It was a great afternoon and early evening with yourself and Dad.

Look forward to seeing you again and best of luck with the first layout.

Do people really live down under there and visit each other? Amazing! Kidding, but it seems a world away from here.

Tonight my wife and I just watched an old movie name "Sundowners" which was filmed on location. It looked beautiful.

How is it that there seems to be a disproportionate number of Austrailians and New Zealanders who collect and run Marklin?

Larry,
when we visit, as the distances are so vast, we do have to take a cut lunch and a compass.

Sundowners , now that is an old movie.

Because we are smart and know quality is better then price any day.

But we are vastly outnumbered by the other side just as M lovers are in the US.

probably in Germany and maybe the rest of Europeas well the shoe may be on the other foot

Yes Ian - the long days are wonderful. Cool

I have just returned home to NZ from a holiday enjoying the northen hemisphere summer. In particular, I was out on the Western Isles in the second half of June, and enjoyed the long days. We spent most of the time based in a cottage on Grimsay. We travelled down to Barra and when we left, headed north to the Butt of Lewis. We were very fortunate with the weather. I recommend it to anyone wanting something different. BigGrin

Regards

Glen

Hi Glen,

That's places I've never been to, glad you enjoyed it.

You could have visited and had a blether about Märklin for an hour or so, next time. ThumpUp

Hi Kim,

Great start to your own collection of Märklin. ThumpUp

Can I ask, what layout does your Dad have.
