    Good morning,

    I was directed towards this forum by members of the Great Western Study group as a good source of prototype info. I am the designer for Peco model railways, also covering Ratio, Wills and Parkside. As such I am often on the hunt for specific info and drawings for various things and I am always on the lookout and appreciative of good modelling.
    I am of course an enthusiast and modeller myself. My particular interest is narrow gauge industrial railways, and my layout depicts the Abbey Light Railway in Leeds, where I was a volunteer, in 7mm scale. I also dabble in many other scales, as required by the job.
    This looks like an excellent forum, and I look forward to getting to know you better.


    Oh, and 'North Star' because I'm from the North (born and raised in West Yorkshire), and I once built a model of the broad gauge 2-2-2 North Star.

    Welcome, David! I've enjoyed your chronicles of the ALR over on NGRM (I'm almost utterly passive there owing to not currently modelling narrow gauge - I'll come back to it one day). I'm sure modelling of that standard will go down well here, too.

    All best,

    The latest picture from my layout. Mostly as a test of how to post pictures here. Can everyone see it?
