Yet another Newbie

Post by 35011 GSN on Mon Aug 10, 2009 1:25 am

Hi all,

I'm sorry to say that I was never at Nine Elms and completely missed out on the steam era all together Sad . However I found this site whilst trying to find out more information on my favourite class of loco - the Merchant Navy. After a quick look through the topics I was amazed by the various accounts of people's experiences with loco's etc. I was hooked! I hope you all dont mind that I'm not an ex-driver or fireman or anything railway related - infact I'm starting my second year at college!

I have had a life-long intrest in railways, and have a large(ish) layout in my loft. Since I was about 12 I found that my intrest really lied with the Southern Region. My first SR pacific (model by the way) was 35011 General Steam Navigation (and sods law ensures it is the one that goes wrong every so often - 3 trips to Hornby repair dept. so far). 35011 is also my favourite!

I have developed a love of the railways and am so dissapointed for missing out - I hope to enjoy the tales other members tell of the wonderfull SR pacifics if you all dont mind that I was never at Nine Elms

Hi Larry,

Welcome to the forum! The more the merrier. All we ask is that you keep things clean on this forum and just enjoy talking with some of the ex-steam men who are on here!! Anything you need to know or are unsure off, please ask me or any of the other members. We have 2 Admins on the forum and one Mod, so if unsure, then please ask.

Hi General Steam Navigation, hope that you enjoy your stay on here. If you can make a can of tea; then you will be ok.

Remember, keep the back corners filled up, and under the door. Very Happy

Can you tell me how and where you found this site? Was it from Google?

Be interested to find out.

Thanks

Apart from Spitfire, there was no other railway-related beer at the GBBF last week! Laughing
