June 2016 Update

Thursday 16th June 2016


Since last month’s update, there has once again been a number of productive modelling evenings which has seen continued progress to the OO gauge shunting layout, Nailsea Wharf and the N gauge layout, Dixon’s Gate. Unfortunately there aren’t any new pictures of progress yet, but keep an eye on future updates for those.


This month’s talk evening was about soldering wires to the track to ensure a good electrical connection for powering the trains which proved useful for those that didn’t have much experience with soldering. No doubt there will be a few modelling evenings spent practicing with using a soldering iron coming up.


 In addition to the general update above, the July issue of the Railway Modeller that is currently available features an article from one of our Club members. Nailsea and District Model Railway Club member, Doug Richards has a six page article about his OO Gauge layout, Padmouth. This portable layout is based in the west Dorset / east Devon area during the 1960s, operating British Railways Southern Region stock. Featuring a small terminus station, locomotive shed and servicing area and a dairy, the layout allows operational interest along it’s 14 foot length. If you’d like to read more about Padmouth, the July 2016 issue of Railway Modeller (volume 67, number 789) is available at various magazine stockists for four more weeks before the next issue is released.
