2005 Monthly Club News

December 2005: We started December with a Club display at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition at the NEC. Hopefully the near 18,000 visitors to the show appreciated our display of Club member's work. We completed the special layout which is destined to be a Christmas present for one of member's grandson just in time for Santa to collect it - We understand we gave one grandson a very happy Christmas!

November 2005: Work on Club nights has gone back to long task of finishing our London based 4mm layout. We are also currently working a special layout which is destined to be a Christmas present for one of member's grandson.

October 2005: We started the month of by taking the Buckshee layout to the Evesham Model Railway Show. The layout was very well received but the reliability of some of the locomotives let us down. On the positive side we won a large and tasty Victoria Sponge cake in the show raffle which was soon eaten by Club members the following Tuesday evening. Work on Club nights has gone back to long task of finishing our London based 4mm layout.

September 2005: The Club staged the first all new Birmingham Model Railway Exhibition over the weekend of the 17th and 18th September. It proved to be a very successful first show which was well received by exhibitors, traders and visitors. We ended the weekend with a very respectable 1270 visitors to the show - We will definitely be back in 2006!

August 2005: Much of the work this month is still centered around preparing layouts for our forthcoming model railway exhibition commitments in the autumn. Over the weekend of the 27th and 28th August the club exhibited our Chilcompton layout at the Sedgemoor Rail Exhibition in Burnham-on-Sea. Being only a matter of around 15 miles from the actual place the layout is based on meant the layout was very well received by the show visitors.

March 2005: The highlight of the month was the exhibition of our Chilcompton layout at the Redruth show at Can Brea in Cornwall. Whilst the show was uneventful the journey back was because of an electrical fault on the hire van. We ended up layout and all on the back of an AA relay truck. The AA driver decided a model railway layout was the second most unusual thing he had had on his recovery truck - The first was a submarine!
