    I live across the pond in the “Colonies” (Florida, to be a little more precise). Somebody sent me a Dave video a year ago, and I have been watching ever since. Most are useful for me. Thanks, Dave.
    The Missus’ calling for tea reminded me of a Monty Python skit. 🙂

    Great stuff Dave…always love to watch your videos…I am a “new” train modeller (1 yr) and tend to get frustrated at times but when I watch your videos or read the articles, things seem to fall into place
    Great job!

    I am just starting to build a railway and have really enjoyed your videos. I watch everyone sometimes two or three times. I now live in Sydney but left Scunthorpe England in 1992. I converted my Mum & Dad’s loft like yours and bought the trains and never finished it. Now I am making a two layer 2200mm x 1515mm which will rise out from under a special desk I have made in my living room so when people come round they don’t know I am an anerak, Your work is superb and thankyou.
