I have memories of being interested in trains back to the early 1970's and the first layouts in my bedroom in the late 1970's.

When I look back, my first modelling was in OO. After getting married and living in a relatively small house I progressed onto N gauge for many years. Several layouts were started and never finished. Finishing things having never been my strong suit. In the early 2000's I discovered 3mm and started a layout called Chorminster which I really enjoyed doing as it started my push towards a finer more detailed side of the hobby. It fell by the wayside due to the frustrations of various supply problems at the time and my inability to produce a working chassis.

In late 2000's I discovered OO9 and built my first layout, Mospick Halt, in that scale which attended a couple of exhibitions. Around that time I also met Richard Holder and got involved with operating his layouts at exhibitions. Richard also set up an Oxfordshire Group of the OO9 Society. With a like minded group of friends I carried on tinkering with OO9, even trialling DCC for a short period of time

I have subsequently moved to Reading where I am now part of the Wilts OO9 Society Group and am embarking on a new layout, Melin Dolrhyd, which is my first attempt at a layout based on a real location.

Technically I have 3 layouts on the go right now but only one is being actively worked on:

Below are two layouts that no longer exist:
