The 12AD Model Railway Group is now one year old, still in nappies but making progress!
As a birthday treat here is a sneaky picture of Milton Street MPD's new extension which is under construction and rapidly nearing completion...
We would like to coin a phrase from a 70's & 80's childrens TV personality, but I dont think we're allowed to anymore...
Other news, Joe has developed piece of software that randomly generates train formations...
At the moment he is concentrating on fine tuning this for Rockvilla Goods, but he has also developed versions for Eaglesham and Milton Street MPD. Depending on the success of this software, he may make this commercially available for a small fee.
Its about time we gave an update of our layouts....
Eaglesham is being prepared for its next public outing to the Midland Railex Exhibition on 16th/17th Aug 2014, this is a great event with model, and real, trains!
Milton Street MPD has its extension continuing apace. The board is built, the trackwork is down and the wire droppers are in place. Most of the buildings have been constructed. Ground cover and detailing are the next tasks to be tackled. Milton Street MPD is its extended form can be seen for the first time at the York & District Model Railway Show on 21st & 22nd September 2014. This local show is now in its second year, come along and say hi!
Rockvilla Goods is going through an upgrade to the uncoupling system before work starts on the extension. An update to this system will be posted here and on rockvillagoods.co.uk in due course.
