Whilst researching a simple electric shunter build for a planed garden railway.........for our grandsons........ I found the site. Lots of good info and knowledge gained here already. Thank you .

I have a reasonable workshop, put together over the last 50 years, Harrison L6, Horizontal only ES1, a very nice, old as me, Herbert 10, mig and Oxford stick welder, O.A. now longer on account.

Bought ST turner casting 35 years ago and sold them 10 years ago unstarted, at a good profit. Used to take M.E. for 20 years, stored untouched years under the stairs.

Got interest in all this with the first grandson now just under five by visits to our local line The Great Central, they nearly got me, might still do, to work on there fleet of Windcutter wagons............... also visited our local Club, at Ruddington, purely as a rider, with the family resently..........need to get involved there.

Recently, last 10 years, have spent time building a home brewery and kit, got quite good at it, if I may say, even better at drinking it............ lol

Anyway, look forward to joining in on the forum, as I used to say on the beer forum, it is a forum not a reading room. lol

Good fun building the brewing kit, moved up to a half barrel job, 100 litres actually, proper beer for 25p a pint............I good to good at drinking it though, not big or clever

That Pete was not me, I was a Homebrew Forum resident.
