I live in the UK and model UK, Goathland is based on a real station and Kalborough is generic

I have a number of station in my loft, some more advanced than others,Goathland a preservation station usually running 1960s with Heartbeat or occasionally Harry Potter, Kalborough an almost modern station with a near by preservation station in reality Nene Valley but here in my loft the aforementioned Goathland, there are also diorama sections and we plan a Blackpool trams... a taster

Is there a spot for 00 gauge, or should I just jump in?
I run our layout both vanilla (I.e. true to life and of an era) and really tutti fruiti
I have at least one US friend who runs Goathland for Harry Potter
But British locomotives have a lot of other film connotations allowing many tongue in cheek moments,and because of cosplay you can often find real photographs to prove this occurs in real life another show I know to be popular in the US IS Doctor Who so a quick taster while I go look for a home for the layout, really enjoying the US rolling stock :)



GNRR Mechanic always fixing stuff
Dr. What? just kidding

I used to watch DR. Who all the time when I was younger. I like the whimsey in your railroad.

I don't think anyone's going to teach you any scenery/weathering tricks. That foam at the waters edge is absolutely brilliant. As far as US Railroads go, you will be learning a new lingo though. Actually I've just noticed my post no longer tells I'm in Quinslund, Orstraya, formerly from N'zilund, so a mix of British types of equipment and terminologies here and some US steam influences over "the ditch" (Tasman Sea). I always like to show a pic of their 1930's K, Ka or Kb "Northerns"
