With a month to go until Eaglesham appears at the Warley National Model Railway Show 28th & 29th November, we have been hard at work preparing the layout for the show. Trackwork, electrics, electronics and scenic upgrades have been carried out, along with new layout lighting.
Likewise, we have been hard at it on Keith's layout, Helenston. The majority of the trackwork has been laid and an early start made on the wiring. Although this is Keith's personal layout, it is the first layout that will have been designed and built by our group as a whole.
After Warley, our main attention will turn to Helenston in preparation for the layout's debut at the Kyle Model Railway Show, 14th & 15th May 2016, however that does not mean that Milton Street MPD has been forgotten. Spencer's domestic authority has agreed that a recently freed up, larger, room, can become a home for Milton Street, so we will be working on the layout in the run up to its next showing at Maryport Model Club Exhibition, April 2016.
Finally, Joe's proposed layout, Coldblow Lane, SE14, has had a trackplan redesign and a reduction in size and shape but at least the era, name and location have remained the same! For a change!
