Norton Vale at Bristol Model Railway Exhibition 2016

Monday 25th April 2016


This coming weekend, on Friday the 29th of April to Sunday the 1st of May, club layout Norton Vale will be exhibited at the Bristol Model Railway Exhibition 2016 at Thornbury Leisure Centre. This show is hosted by the Association of Model Railway Clubs Wales and West of England, more information can be found on their website by clicking here.


This weekend, Norton Vale was set up in the club room to give it a test before the show to ensure that everything still operates okay since it’s last outing. There has also been a few small alterations including the addition of a new fiddle yard at the end of the layout beyond the dairy that required thorough testing. A few photos from this testing session can be seen below.
