17th September 2018 - New Page added for the Whithorn Model

UPDATES

RIGHT: The ‘N’ gauge model of Dent station on the Settle & Carlisle line now has a new home in a club member’s ‘Railway Room.’ This has created a large space in the clubrooms which is now occupied by Moorside Parkway.

‘Moorside Parkway’

a fictitious location running mostly modern-image trains.


Moorside Parkway is coming together well. The track is complete and regular running sessions are carried out usually on Thursdays. The scenery is being built, commencing with the left hand end (from the viewing side). We are working towards the right as areas are completed. The Moorfield Parkway multi-storey car-park is constructed and has now reached the detailing stage.

Bewdley

Graham and Chris’ model of Bewdley Station on what is now the Severn Valley Railway has been brought in the clubroom for maintenance and further development. The boards can be seen at the back of the picture below.

During August/September both Bewdley, belonging to Graham Heald, and Whithorn, belonging to Alisdair MacDonald, (both supported by the club) have been out at exhibitions where they have both gained the ‘Best in Show’ accolade. In addition, the creamery on Whithorn gained the ‘Vice President’s Trophy’  for the best building in the show.
