Good day Chris,
Really nice to hear from you,much appreciated.
Yes its being one hell of a time,one thing after another,and if it was not for my dear put upon wife and my almost fanatasism! for Model Railways I know for sure I would not be here. Not at all easy to explain it's something you have to experience.
Re the Spur1:- I am advertising the Spur 1 stuff here in Norway but I do not hold much hope of selling the Norwegians are a very Norway centric modelling bunch (no offence).
Oh yes I have been down the Custom Builder Route. Far too expensive and few if any have good knowledge of Gn15 or similar.
and I would like it to be someone who as a real feel for Gn15
or associated scale/gauge e.t.c. and yes I would be willing to look at a preloved layout as long as it was of a good standard.
all the best Steve
