I think it's an appropriate time to acknowledge the presence of other garden train forums.
There are quite a few now and the most notable are G scale Mad
in the UK, My Large Scale
in the US and Voie Métrique libre
If you wish to include any more please add them to the post in the 'Links' section.
I would like and expect a genuine and friendly rapport between all forums. Each one has it's own merits and sometimes bad points.
It's up to individuals to post where and when they want without feeling uncomfortable or disloyal in any way.
I have been in contact with Jason on GSM and we have exchanged our mutual goodwill.
