I get lost doing introductions, what to say, how much to say, so I'll say, hi I'm magnut. I'm a life long fan of paper sculpture, too ham fisted to do it myself, mad about model trains, couldn't stand dolls when a young girl, and always insisted on boys toys for presents. Well I'm approaching my seventh decade, and at long last I'm getting my own n guage model track layout. Have a son whose waited over 40 years to be able to get his own layout, so we've reached an accord. I donate a room, he builds the track, which because I loved the old GWR route down to Penzance, and he collects American locos, is going to be an International set up. No purists in this house, I enjoy playing too much for that. I want to see a war bonneted loco running on the Dawlish track and my GWR engines trundling through the Rockies, with my grandsons Japanese bullet train whizzing around disappearing inside Devonshire hills emerging next by my Cornish tin mines and passing by the Hoover Damn. I'll get the Alps in there somewhere as well, even if I have to extend up into the roof area.
