End of June 2016 Update

Thursday 30th June 2016


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.
