    Welcome Aboard Woodie!

    You're probably the first participant from "Down Under". As you've probably picked up, there are contributors from all over the US, Canada and the UK. I don't know about many from beyond that.

    What are your favourites on the rails?

    George.

    Thanks George,
    Favourites? I made up a webpage on the weekend http://www.rainbow.net.au/~niceboys
    Old favs of mine, red rattlers they were nicknamed. They were around for more than 70 years serving Melbourne and Victoria. My HO layout is based on these prototypes. I used to ride them to work, when I lived in Melbourne! Bit of Trivia, Melbourne was the first city in the world to have electric trains... ironically the same trains were still running 70 years later!!
    TOOT!
