I'm Howard and mine is a familiar story, enthusiastic railway modeller in my teens, then university, work, marriage, kids and house moves put paid to any hope of continuing with the hobby. Now recently retired and hopefully settled I have finally had the opportunity to build and actually complete (more or less!) my first layout in decades. Although I'm a Yorkshireman by birth and upbringing (but now sadly an exile in the Midlands) my OO scale DCC layout is set on the south coast during World War Two in the small fictional port-cum-holiday resort of Chuffnell Regis. It's 1944 and preparations for D-Day are underway. I'm looking forward sharing my love of the hobby in what I'm sure will be a friendly constructive atmosphere (unlike a certain other forum I could, but won't mention!) Howard.
