Overall, Milton Street MPD performed well at the recent Falkirk Model Railway Exhibition. A few issues presented themselves which we overcame but they will need further investigation before the next exhibition, the Kilmarnock & District Model Railway Show on 17th and 18th January 2015.
The layout was very well received by the public, attracting many favourable comments, and the layout's owner, Spencer Anderson, was even asked for his autograph by a chap who had seen the layout in Hornby Magazine and was a big fan!
That was a first for us!
Arrangements are being made to photograph Milton Street MPD for one of the monthly magazines, more news as this progresses.
Sad news was delivered at the show, Nairnshire Modelling Supplies are sadly no longer attending any more exhibitions, this is a shame as their stall was great for picking up those little bits and pieces that can be hard to find elsewhere. Nairnshire will concentrate their efforts into the mail order side of their business. We at the 12AD Model Railway Group wish Sarah and Nigel all the best for the future, a friendlier couple you could not meet.
The main focus has now been turned to Eaglesham and its extension, we have created a new page, Eaglesham Extension Progress. This page will be updated regularly to document the extension in words and pictures.
There will be an announcement in the near future regarding Rockvilla Goods new identity and plans for its future.
