    I just joined up a few minutes ago and thought I better introduce myself so people don't think I'm a nut-case (any more than usual).
    My name is Russ and have been into logging for over 20 years.
    I finally have the space I want to build the layout I want and while this isn't my first layout it will be the biggest.
    I recognise quite a few people here (hey Nelson!!) so this'll be fun!!
  2. Hey, Russ, welcome to the Gauge :D

    You're going to find more than a few familiar names (errrr.... uhhhh, faces) here. There's a great bunch of modelers here, and they all like to talk about railroading.

    (and if you listen carefully enough, you can find where the beer and Graham County's finest are stashed... :eek: :eek: :rolleyes: :D :D )

    Close to home!


    This is getting a bit to close to home now!:cool:

    You're sorta just up the road from me! I was on my lonesome in The Gauge for a while, as a sole representative of a far flung outpost of the British Empire, so it's great to see someone from familiar territory! They're a good bunch of blokes in here, and they've helped me out on any number of occassions. Welcome, and hope to see you around quite a bit. :) :cool:

    Garahbara is open for inspection anytime you're in town! :)

    Thanks for the welcome everyone.
    And Woody, if you're planning on a trip to the vinyards near Cessnock, let me know, I'm out that way (very impressed with your web-site too).

    Some of the 14 Doz under the stairs came from up that way! Gradually getting sipped away, and will need replenishing soon! :)

    Heading up through that way in the next few weeks (to Casino/Lismore) for a week or so. Might drop by The Hunter and have a wee sip or too! :) **HIC** :D

    Thanks for the compliment on the website. :)

    G'day Russ
    I've only been here a couple months or so but learnt an awful lot of interesting stuff.
    Unfortunately I had to move from Melbourne to Perth a month ago, so now we need a recruit down south, and one or two up in cane toad country.;)
    There's already at least one member from over in the Shaky Isles:)
    And as for the others?
    They seem a friendly, knowledgable bunch whose main aim in life is encouragement. Long may the Gauge prosper:cool:

    Welcome, Russ.

    Good to see another modeller joining.

    I've been here for quite a while, but I'm not terribly active or knowledgable in the hobby yet.

    I am a bit worried about Mike (what's his name - bilgewater??) playing with a jug of hooch though.
