Mid May 2016 Update

Saturday 21st May 2016


Last week’s club meeting was a running night which saw a busy test track with a variety of different models running, some of which can be seen in the photos below. Items brought in by our members included a HO scale inspection trolley with wagons, a OO gauge Royal Train consisting of 67006 Royal Sovereign and matching coaches, a trio of OO gauge Westerns amongst other diesel locos, a HO New South Wales Garratt with hopper wagons, a number of OO-9 narrow gauge locos, and some long N gauge goods trains from different eras.

While all of these trains were running a few of our other members continued working on some of their modelling projects. Progress continued with both the OO gauge shunting layout, Nailsea Wharf and the N gauge layout, Dixon’s Gate. Also pictured is a trio of Ivatt locos in EM scale that were being worked on by our club chairman for his layout, Great Swilling.

Finally for this update, December 2016 brings with it our biennial Open Day show where you can see some of the layouts owned by club members and take the opportunity to talk to some of our members and maybe consider joining the club yourself. This year, the club Open Day is being held in Yatton Village Hall on the 4th December. More information will be listed here as it becomes available.
