Well it's not too Thomas related, but I'd like to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year!

I agree. Let's just home that in 2016 we get of course Oliver and Toad who some reason have been delayed with their releases, but also we get some new Locomotives, Rolling Stock and hopefully a good expansion on the Narrow Gauge range!

It's 2016! Last year, well yesterday (UK time zone), I filmed another video of my Hornby J13 Class GNR Locomotive with a Hornby Thomas Face fitted, that I have called Alex: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBGIFRYCXmI/!

Please post you thoughts about this below. Thank you.

Now that is funny UPTODAY! Dear, oh dear! Clearly in this case, you can't decide what shoes too buy, or in this case you don't know what to do with your new layout!

Whilst your point is valid, this is a topic called "The Everything Thomas Thread" and often both ranges do get talked about, however your point is at least valid in one sense, a little bit is ok I guess, but I guess there is a certain point where we should stick back to Bachmann for a while, I'll say that much.

Completely different topic here, but I might be moving house at the end of this brand new year, and I finally might be able to set up a layout again. Nothing is official just yet, but with any luck I might be able to set one up. Now, being the person I am, I like to think these things through a bit before I begin putting the layout together, even if it's still many months away at the earliest, I still like to think about the possibilities for what I could do. For a bit of context, realistically I think I'll be looking around 4x6 feet or around 5x8 feet, it depends on where I move to (personal story about why, and I'm not here to discuss that). Now I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for what to use on it? I have thought about perhaps making a harbour yard for some of it, but again, if anyone has any suggestions, they would be much appreciated, as it will give me a lot to think about Smiley

Thank you. No, it's not a scenery. Hornby Mountain is not going to be permanent! The Class 150 EMU, LMS Loco, Bachmann LMS Maroon Coaches are my dad's. He is testing them, while my layout is waiting to be fitted in my bedroom, currently it is in the dinning room on the table. The Hornby liveried 0-4-0, and Year Wagon's are mine however. I have a lot of Locomotives and Rolling Stock is from the Thomas & Friends ranges.

Technically, there is nothing wrong with talking about other ranges on the forum, but there are boundaries such as not comparing the two ranges or saying one range or model is better than the other.  This is generally not allowed here since this is an official Bachmann Trains forum and representatives from other ranges cannot speak for themselves here.  Same can also be said for putting down either range or calling Hornby something along the lines of "H company" or "red box company".

If you are unsure of where to start, I would check one of your local hobby shops to see if there are any track-planning books available since I used something like this for my layout before too.  There are plenty of track plans that would be ideal for what you are looking for from what I have seen so I think it can help with coming up with creative ideas for your layout.  As far as what you would like to put on your layout location wise I think that decision should come from you since this is your own personal layout.  Like what people have said at shows I go to: "Your model railroad, your rules".

I have Bachmann Salty. Please do not count me on this, but I do not think Alex (AJW98Productions) has Bachmann Salty. He Messages me daily, and we have spoken about what we own and I can't ever remembering him telling me if he owns Salty.
