Hi all. I'm new to this forum. Have just registered, so forgive me if I boo boo getting used to it. Bit of info. Live in Sydney, Australia, and constructing a HO layout based on Victorian (state of Australia, not period in time!) and New South Wales raliways of 60's and 70's. Already ripped the whole thing up once! Tried to many shortcuts, and bent too many rules. I'm using the NMRA standards and if I can say anything..... DONT BEND THEM CAUSE YOU WILL REGRET IT IN THE LONG RUN!!!
