May 2019 Planning for our new 1970's based layout has continued by drawing out the proposed layout out full sized on a very large piece of paper.  This is allowing us to refine the ideas before we commit to actually making the layout We have also been remaking all of the trestles that support our Chilcompton and Oakenshaw layouts to make them more sturdy than the current ones.

April 2019 We had a great weekend in the company of a Pannier Tank 8F and a Jinty amongst other things at the Engine House at Highley at the Severn Valley Railway exhibiting our Smallwood layout on the 6th and 7th April. We have started to draw out a plan for our new 1970's exhibition layout Northgrove. It will be a similar size to Dagnell End and Oakenshaw. We have replaced a point on Arrowmouth that had failed the last time the layout was operated in readiness for the outing in June to the Great Central Railway.

March 2019: We are continuing to improve our layouts ready for forthcoming exhibitions. Work on Dagnell End is nearly complete and the exciting news is you will be able to see the layout at our show in September. We are also spending more time preparing our Smallwood layout for the SVR Open Weekend in April.

February 2019: We have continued on the improvements to our Dagnell End layout. Work is currently centred on the London Underground part of the layout with sections of the track being relayed to improve operational reliability. We have also spent some time preparing our Smallwood layout for the SVR Open Weekend in April.

January 2019: We start 2019 with work continuing on our Smallwood layout and preparing our Oakenshaw layout for the Weston Super Mare Model Railway Exhibition in January 2019. We had a great weekend and were well looked after at the Weston exhibition on 13th January where our Oakenshaw layout was well received by the visitors - We will be back next year with a different layout.
