I have been involved in Model Railways for some 50 plus years now.
Starting with a Tri-ang Railways Princess Elizabeth train set when I was around eight and then progressing through various layouts and exhibition layout to where I am now with another "OO" layout in my garage, which is never to leave home.
My web site at www.brian-lambert.co.uk receives many requests for help, especially from new modellers and those returning to the hobby after a spell away and are somewhat bewildered by the advances in the hobby. So I decided to write the book 'The Newcomers Guide To Model Railways'. I believe and have many purchasers confirmation of such, that it will help with all aspects of railway modelling from the very beginnings to the actual running and enjoying a full model railway layout.
Enjoy the hobby.
