Re: Questions and comments that don't need a thread of their own

Hi Marquette, Reading that blog gives more insight into that lemon filled hopper you posted recently, with the industries on your track plan.

Re: Hi All, I am new here.

Hi Jerzy, I am in Australia also, down in Albury. I have only met one other TT'er, Ian of TiTan Models who is also on this forum. I first met him at a show and hope to catch up again sometime.
