There are a few things to report in this Nailsea and District Model Railway Club update.
Progress continues with the OO gauge shunting layout, Nailsea Wharf. All of the point motors have been fitted and the wiring started. There’s also been a number of buildings made ready for use on the layout. The photo below shows adjustment work to some of the track alignment to ensure clearance for scenery.
The club’s test tracks continue to be popular with a variety of stock from different eras, regions and countries being run. Shown below is a Deutsche Bahn Class 218 Diesel locomotive on the Gauge 1 test track.
New Club Chairman, Ian Roll has shared a few photos of his work in progress Scale 7 layout which are shown below. Polsands is a Southern Region shunting layout loosely based in the North Cornwall area.
Finally for this update, the dates for next years annual exhibition have been confirmed as being Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th March 2017 with 8 layouts and 8 traders already confirmed as planning to attend. More on those will appear nearer the time. There will also be an update soon with more information on this years Club Open Day to be held in December.
