    Hello people. I have just joined and would like to say what a brilliant and comprehensive site this is!
    I was wandering, is there anyone else here who models British outline in HO Gauge? I would like to get some correspondance going!:wave:

    We put my son's Thomas the Tank Engine and Annie and Clarabelle on the track, but that's about as British as it gets.

    Nonetheless, welcome!;)

    Welcome to the-gauge Alan! Well, if we don't have any British HO, we sure would love to see some pictures of what you have modeled!!!

    Hi Alan,
    Do you model in HO scale (1/87) or OO?
    I acquired some OO loco parts and want to scratch build the rest of the locomotive someday.

    In response to shamus, no, not OO, HO (Really!)
    I haven't got any photos myself, but to give you an idea of what I have done, visit http://british-ho.com and click on "Latest". you will find a photo of a BR Class 33 made by Lima to HO (3.5mm) scale that I detailed and painted.:D

    Hi Alan.
    As one of the resident British modellers on the Gauge, I don't know of anyone who is modelling British HO. I'm working with OO/HO (or OOn49.5). I wish there had been HO when I started. We have a number in our Toronto area club working in Extra Millimeter gauge and a few in the even wider one.

    Welcome :wave: Alan! Of the forums I participate in the-gauge and railroad-line forums are the best and friendliest (and there's a lot of folks who are members of both). You'll always get answers to your questions, no matter how off-the-wall (and I've asked some DOOZIES!).

    While I also model American prototypes I'd love to see some British models here. I did consider getting the Harry Potter set, does that count????

    Again, welcome!
