September 2016 Update

Saturday 18th September 2016

 

To start with for this update, we have a photo of progress to the Club’s N Gauge layout Dixon’s Gate. Scenery work has been started, so far consisting of ballasting the trackwork, and testing continues to ensure that everything still operates after applying glue around the rails and point work.

Following on from David Burnett’s talk on modelling in EM Scale at the start of August, he spent last Tuesday’s modelling evening showing another club member what he was doing while constructing a turnout to EM gauge from a C&L Finescale kit.

In the last update, we mentioned the Weston-super-Mare Train Show held on Sunday the 11th of September. At the show was David Burnett’s EM scale layout, Great Swilling, and below are a few photos taken during the day. Also there was Mike Brown’s G Scale tramway layout, Paley Green Park.

Finally for this update, Jynnontonix, a German HO scale layout owned by club member Alan Crombie will be appearing at the Folkestone Model Railway Exhibition on the 1st and 2nd of October at the Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone. Below are a couple of photos taken during a recent testing session to ensure the layout is still operating correctly.
