Hornby Mixed Goods Model Railway

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

My first solo attempt of a model railway. I have the Hornby Mixed Goods DCC set which comes with two trains and 4 trucks. I have just finished building my baseboards (took about 3 weeks!) and I have an oval (3rd radius) with one siding. Would like to have a second oval and some more trains / trucks before I start with some grass, stones and a station.
