January 2020 Update

Hi all and happy new year to you all sorry for the lack of updates recently but we have all been very busy with some of our members including our webmasters moving house and of course the Christmas festivities. With that behind us we are pushing on with the fixed OO layout and fitting the mega points system and work is about to start on the reliability issues with Okehampton along with exhibition planning gathering pace with a first few confirmations added to the exhibition page more will be added in the coming weeks and months.

We have had a few new members join us and a few returning to the club over last last few months which has been great to see and if you would like to see what we are all about then pop down on a Wednesday or Friday evening after 19.30 and see what we get up to wither it be reminiscing of past glory days of the Railways, reading or watching videos/DVDs about local or continental railways, getting hands on with building a model railway or just wanting to sit back and watch trains go by, whatever the reason a warm and friendly welcome will await you.
