Summer Club Update.
The club has had a busy summer so far, with details and new buildings being added to our model railway Hungate Bridge and we also put on a mini exhibition at Wimbotsham. The Wimbotsham exhibition was i am pleased to say was a success with many people coming in through the doors. The exhibition was supported with extra layouts and display stands. Club member Richard Stowe exhibited his OO gauge layout Wallingford and Daniel Cousins exhibited his N gauge layout Edale. I hope to add photos to the website of this exhibition shortly. Richard displayed his N gauge model of Sutton Bridge which members of the public found interesting. Ron Pointer displayed some of his Gauge 1 models and Daniel Cousins put on a display of some of his narrow gauge garden railway models. Many thanks to Brian Baylis for organising the exhibition and Gerald Cross, John Sleeth and Daniel Reid for operating the layout for the day.Our new buildings for the layout are a new station building scratch built by Richard Stowe, Coopers shed built jointly by Richard Stowe and Alan Earle. The Coopers shed features a detailed interior which is a must see you can see pictures on the photo gallery and the model features working lights.Gerald Cross has been working on scenery by adding some station walling and he has now started on the Coopers yard. I have added some people and details to the station platforms and some lineside details and hope to add some more soon.
