Johannes (Lucas) is here...

Hello everyone.
This is Dr. Johannes Grabsch, retired Chemical Engineer from Valkenburg in the very south of the Netherlands. (the 'Dr.' is in my passport, since they earmarked me a Phd ...)
We used to live for many years in Leeds, and I was member of some local Model Engineering Societies there. We have moved to Continental Europe 2 years ago. I am 70 years of age and I have decided to move my Model Engineering activities into building rolling stock. Handling 5" railcars is a lot easisier then handling 5" locos... I will keep the Speedy and the Simplex, while I'm selling off the other Locos. I have already 5 UK railcars, in various stage of progress. Having lived in Leeds, I have of course studied and the railcar rolling stock at the Middelton Railway. One of my planned projects is a Palvan, naturally.
If you see a "Yorkshireman" in a forum, that is me from my time in Leeds. Here, I've chosen "Lucas", from the Kids TV program "Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer"
I will show up in Doncaster as a visitor. I see you then.
Johannes
