Hello ( G'day ) from Victoria, Australia

I have just become the owner of the LGB / Pola stock from a shop that closed in the late 1980's

What better way is there to get into a hobby than "dive in the deep end" ... there was quite a lot ! ( see pic )

I am looking forward to setting up track at my partners place ( she has MS and loves her garden ) as well as my own place.

More to come as I wade through my boxes ... ( p.s. the rest of the stash was put in my stationwagon )

Wow great if somewhat older item start. You will certainly be predominantly analogue I guess. Hope there is plenty of track, that is the stuff that will make things adaptable for you. Perhaps moving on some of the older locomotives which by now may be collectable if brand new and untouched in their boxes. This would allow you to get up to date with digital, the rolling stock could not give a fig so will be just fine as is.

Welcome to the forum by the way. Lots more advice comming your way I feel sure.
