Monthly Club News

May 2018 : We started the month by completing the installation of large casters to the supporting legs on our Smallwood layout. We can now easily move the layout around and into and out of the club room. The casters have brakes so when used the layout is as stable as it would be on normal legs. We have also added a shelf in the fiddle yard. Plans are also afoot to make some improvements to our club room to improve the amount of storage we have.

April 2018 : We have continued to make improvements to the electrics on our Smallwood layout. We had a great weekend in the company of Westerns, Class 50's and Class 37's in the diesel shed at the Severn Valley Railway exhibiting our Dagnell End layout on the 7th and 8th April. We had a get month at the Forge Mill Museum with our Pop up Model Railway Show and thank you to all those that supported this event. We understand our event help to increase overall visitor numbers to the museum.

March 2018: We started the month with the club not meeting on Thursday 1st March due to heavy snow. Work this month has concentrated this month on getting our Smallwood layout to work better electrically.  On Thursday 22nd March we opened our pop up model railway show at the Forge Mill Museum. It was open until 22nd April 2018.

February 2018 : We start the month by taking our Arrowmouth layout to the Stafford Model Railway Exhibition over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of February. As usual Arrowmouth was well received with both the visitors and exhibition managers as we left the show with three potential further exhibition bookings for the layout in the coming years. We exhibited our Chilcompton layout at the Milton Keynes Model Railway Exhibition on the 10th February 2018.

January 2018: We start 2018 with work continuing on our Smallwood layout and preparing our Arrowmouth layout for the Stafford Model Railway Exhibition in February 2018.
