Hello !
It was a long way to be here, but it's done ! :D
I'm very happy to be a Gnew member of this great Forum !
I don't make model railroading, I'm just playing with my little big trains...and that's all !
I run a small G scale indoor layout and now, I'm looking for Gn15 scale.
It seems to be very funny ! I'm pretty sure that I'll find advices and a ton of ideas.
Sorry for my poor English, but after all, I'm just a French guy !

:D Special thanks to the Big Boss of the GnATTERbox. :D

welcome Pierre. Lots of inspiration and helpful advice here.
We are getting quite a bit of interest from France. Remember Gn15 will be represented at Sedan in October.
Just wondering which part of France you are in, as can't find anywhere called Southern Berry.

In fact there is no Southern Berry !
"Le Berry" is a very old name and I live in the south of this country.
I hope you can find any thing you want with this link :

If I drive down to my house in south of France, I drive through that region, but had never seen any reference to Berry. Normally either trying to get to top end of A75, going south or back to Troyes for overnight stop so not much time to look around. Maybe next year I can do journey at a slower pace, as would love to properly explore. Only place I have explored is that castle they are building from scrtch not far from Auxerre.

You could find this old country if you drive on A71.
There is a lot of Berry road signs on this highway.
You can't miss it ! :D :D :D

Welcome.

Simply follow the sound of the Berry Cornemuses and the Hurdy-Gurdies.

If you survive this sound for a few hours, you are ready for Gn15.

Have Fun

Hello again happy GnATTERbox members!
After a long while, I'm back on this wonderful and very friendly forum.
Because I did a lot of mistakes with my damn computer, I had to register again.
But in fact, I'm always the same odd French guy.
And like I said before, all my apologies for my poor English.
Anyway, I'm very happy to be back on this forum !
Best regards,
Pierre

Hey there, welcome back!
Oh, why apologize - your "poor English" is exponentially better than my non-existent French!
