The list currently stands at 89 members. Most seem happy to lurk and I hope their lurking leaves them inspired.
How long before we make the elusive 100 members I wonder?
More to the fact who ever thought we'd reach 100 members? Smile

T-gaugers,

We had a good time showing off our T-gauge layouts at the GTE in Sacramento, Calif. last weekend. I ran both my trains for about 12 hours without a breakdown. Once again, spent a lot of time at continuous track cleaning. A good deal of amazement, curiosity and interest by those who stopped to spend more than a quick glance. Many copied down the website addresses where they could purchase trains and starter tracks. I am patiently waiting for more acccesories (turnouts and flex-track) and more locos and rolling stock. On to modular T-gauge layouts.

Charlie

Hi All, and thankyou for the fantastic welcome. When I was younger.(I'm now 61 and a half) I managed to write The Lords Prayer on the back of a postage stamp approx 1inch by 1 inch. So maybe there is hope for me constructing the "Flying Scotsman" from the kit available, you never know!
As for being the 100th member, I'm "riding on the backs of giants" all you before me are the real pioneers.
Nick
P.S. All my O , OO and N gauge have been sold, there is a very happy Lady in this house, already helping with scenics etc. So there! N

Wow, from 13 to 61, that's quite an age range for T Gauge! I hope Eishindo is paying attention to the metrics we're gathering here...
