Hi Guys, I'm 69 in less than a weeks time and have decided N guage is going tp be my retirement hobby along with model motorcycles / aircraft making and motorcycling. I haven't had trains since my youth but find myself being dragged in to them when i think about the looming retirement days ahead. I have bought a couple of KATO packs, M2 and V3 as a starting point and will ask Santa for more track / turnouts for Christmas. looking to do a smallish L-shaped shelf layout . Black or White River Junction is currently spinning my wheels. Plenty of reading to do before doing anything too permanent.
