May 2016 Update

Saturday 7th May 2016


Following on from Norton Vale’s outing to the Bristol Model Railway Exhibition at Thornbury Leisure Centre last weekend, more alterations are being planned for the layout. The new fiddle yard seems to have acheived the desired operational improvement intended overall and the three days at the exhibition also showed where other alterations could be made. These improvements will hopefully be implemented before the layout’s next outing. Thanks go to the Association of Model Railway Clubs Wales and West of England for inviting Norton Vale to their show along with the layout operators who enjoyed the opportunity to run some trains.


As there isn’t much else to say for this update, included below are a couple of photos from previous meetings to show what a few of our members have been up to.
