Hello, I'm a new member, located outside Seattle. Hello from down south.
I've been interested in various aspects of model railroads for many years. Recently bought some MRJ magazines which have been inspiring. Combined with a long-standing interest on etched steam loco kits, thoughts of a pre-war layout in p4 keep occuring. Perhaps some branchline near the Settle and Carlisle. I'll admit to having done lots of reading and little modelling to date - that whole gainful employment thing - but thought I'd say hello.
If the Vancouver meet goes ahead at the end of May, I'll be there.
One or two copies of the MRJ and an interest in etched kits. It's a slippery slope...
I hope you've had chance to browse around the Forum. In particular, have a look at Tim's thread: https://www.scalefour.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=5148
It's a Midland Railway branchline in a similar part of the world, pre-(First)War, and importantly, he started P4 modelling as a complete beginner. Oh, and started with a lot of reading
And don'r worry about asking lots of questions - it's what this Forum is for.
Finally, yes, having to work for a living is a pain!
