Kathy Millatt Modelling
Kathy who hails from the United Kingdom has a cool FaceBook page and blog where she shares all kinds of tips and videos on modeling. Not to be missed is the the Adventures of the Mini Kathy's that end each how to video.

from Kathy-
I’ve been modelling railroads since 2000 when I went on holiday and saw a permanent model railway exhibit. It reminded me of playing with trains with Dad when I was younger. He had Hornby Dublo 3 rail which we got out every Christmas. It even found a permanent home for a while before homework took over the desk. My main memory is that my white lines on the road were about a third of the road width and my major scenic element was sand. Hopefully I’ve moved on from that!

I started back into modeling with a UK layout based on the railway outside my house before moving on to modeling the United States. I chose the New Haven as it has all my favourite elements: grotty industrial, beautiful scenery, fast trains and local branch lines. It’s a beautiful part of the world and I’m a sucker for those stainless steel fluted side coaches! It’s been quite a journey with forays into On30 and scoff.
