Modelling Workshops at our Club

Hi all,

Last Saturday, the 29th of March 2014, I had the opportunity to talk to members regarding the development of both our N Scale and HO/OO Layouts. The Development of the N Scale Layout is a credit to the team that is undertaking the work. I have donated a scratch built Model Power Station ( a rough one at that) and I am advised with the right amount of work it will add to the already impressive work that has been done.Work on refurbishing the HO/OO Layout is also underway so thanks to those members who are donating their time and expertise. There have been a number of excellent ideas that have been put about for this layout and I want to thank both Dave Austin and Bob McCabe for their worthwhile suggestions.

Jeff Rosenberg was also hard at work on the T TRAK layout and it was agreed that a minor refit of buildings and structures would enhance its appearance – again thanks Jeff for your ideas.

On a more important note, I had a discussion with Peter Lamb where Peter suggested the running of a number of Railway Modeling Workshops to assist those members who are both new to the Club and Hobby. Peter Lamb has put together a number of subjects that will greatly assist new members. I fully support this venture and will be attending these workshops too.

To this end it was suggested that these workshops will be run on the alternate months where the Club is not having a General Meeting. A timetable will be published very shortly and it will be posted on the Club’s notice board and here online.

Regards to all Members,
Peter Ball
