Monthly Club News

December 2011: We started the month off by taking our Buckshee layout to a Christmas Fare event at Kings Norton in South Birmingham on Saturday 3rd December. We are continuing work on the construction we are  on our new Oakenshaw layout. We have also had two new members join us in recent weeks - we still have space for more !!!

November 2011: We are continuing to work on our new Oakenshaw layout/ We had our Club display stand at the annual Warley National Model Railway Exhibition where we caught up with many old friends. Over the weekend of the 25th to 27th November we took Dagnell End to the 50th Wakefield Model Railway Exhibition.

August 2011: We started the month with some preparation of our Arrowmouth layout before we had a successful weekend exhibiting at the Southwold show over the weekend of the 6th and 7th August.

We have made allot of progress with Chilcompton this month with some major improvements in the scenery.

July 2011: The Club website is 12 years old this month. Work continues on both our Chilcompton and Oakenshaw layouts. On Chilcompton all of the track that needed relaying has been completed and all of the new back scenes have been fitted. A start has now been made on the total rewi
