    Twickenham MRC's 2018 will feature at least four working layouts, displays, demonstrations, refreshments and our secondhand stand.
    This year the focus will mainly be on OO with at least three working layouts in that gauge .........
    TWICKENHAM JUNCTION - our new flagship OO steam era layout will be making its first public appearance. The layout is an accurate model of the old Twickenham station as if it had not been rebuilt post WW2 as our model is set circa 1961.
    EASTGATE - our new privatisation era D&E layout. The club is building a relatively small layout in order to attract a bigger group of dedicated D&E modellers who can then tackle a bigger more ambitious layout in the near future - come and join the group and help turn that dream of a BIG D&E layout into a reality.
    NORTHWICK - our current steam era exhibition layout - it's been revamped and extended in the last two years - come and see the improvements! Here's a quick snapshot ...................................

    BATTY MOOR - our N gauge layout will be running
    ADDISON ROAD - our 7mm group will be having a display
    Weathering using powders - demonstration
    Secondhand stand - well-wishers have donated a variety of items to tempt you. If you have any old unwanted items you would be prepared to donate to the club please bring them along or contact us to arrange collection.

    All in all I nice relaxing way to spend the day - hope to see you there.
