    The title of this thread is the new name for my website, which encompasses many of my previous modelling activities, scales, layouts. Regrettably not all are documented due to lack of photographs of early days, or loss during computer changes - in the days before multiple back-ups! Not all content is HO scale, but as this is where I feel at home, thought I would post here.

    So any posts here will be of anything I am currently working on, either alone or with my son Matthew (stickymonk).

    Please have a browse. I would welcome comments ;)

    The (temporary) Andersley Western HO scale page
    http://www.andersley.co.uk/americanHO.html

    The main layout for AW operation will be Matt's South Lewistown, but I may build a smallish diorama (or layout) to represent Andersley, so trains can be shown at each end of the route. Maybe also a small section to represent a midway point, maybe a passing siding, grade crossing or whatever - to increase photographic opportunities.

    An update to this thread. We are currently taking a break at our house in Slovenia, but when we get back to our UK home I will be starting the build of my American HO Andersley layout. Baseboards were built just before we came here so are ready for track planning/laying. My track planning involves shuffling track and structures around until I am happy with the layout!

    The story so far is on

    It works! I used to do this all the time with my Lionel, when I was a boy. I had a lot of fun making change after change. In school spent too much class time sketching ideas for when I'd be back home later that day. Happy, happy, joy, joy! Have fun!

    I'm afraid your days as spokesperson for all the companies with track planning software are pretty much over!
