I have begun my very first Gauge 1 kit for the Hollywater Line. This kit was recommended to me as a good place to begin so I bought one at the O Gauge traders show in Reading last year. No sooner had I got home when one of Santa's little helpers spirited it away for it to return on Christmas day. Tempting as it was to begin the kit at once I thought it prudent to leave it until now to get started. Many of you are probably familiar with the model and have a much higher skill level than me but hopefully my progress will provide a little entertainment.
