This is a site for people who want to improve their knowledge of equipment and modelling technique and who would like to join a club of like minded people within the Milton Keynes, South Northants and North West Bedfordshire area.
The exhibition was held in the Carlton House Club
(formally The Working Men's Club),
38 High Street, Olney. MK46 4BB.
There was an entrance charge of:
£2.50 for Adults.
£2.00 for Concessions (children and over 60's),
£6.00 for a Family, 2 adults plus 2 children.
Refreshments were available at a very reasonable cost, as was the full Bar Menu.
Doors opened between 10.30am and 4.30pm.
There was free parking in the Town, within walking distance.
This extensive DCC layout is currently under construction and was exhibited to illustrate the considerable progress that had been made since last year. This is a long term project and with the Club meeting on a one evening a week basis, it is recognised that the project will take a number of years to complete.
The main scenic boards are nearing completion and work on the fiddle yard boards is well advanced. It is anticipated that construction works will be completed during this year, to enable the finished layout to be exhibited at our 2018 Exhibition.
The layout features the Model Electronic Railway Group (MERG) CBUS system to achieve point and signal control. This reduces greatly the number of wires going across table joins.
A terminus style layout set in 1930’s Wales.
Based on the Mariazellerbahn in Austria, which is a 760mm narrow gauge line running south from the Salzburg to Vienna main line at St Polten. This is Peter’s first attempt at continental modelling in the HO scale.
Set in Lincolnshire. Terminus of an estate railway, growing various crops (mainly potatoes) with a narrow gauge connection to the main line.
Parcels facility adjacent to London Victoria station.
