Hello everyone that’s February all done and dusted a few more traders and a few layouts have now been confirmed for the show please see our Exhibition page for more information.
A while back we mentioned that things had been happening within the club well we are please to say that our new in house club layout is up and running with 4 separately controlled lines capable of running either DCC or Analogue control systems running on a two level system with sidings and passing loops to hold trains and carry out shunting, these will be fully operational in due course as our aim is to ensure smooth running and reliability first, once we are happy with the running we will start to look at what scenery will be appropriate for the layout.
Will aim to get some pictures up soon when I next visit the club.
