    009 narrow gauge as well as 1:1 narrow gauge. Especially interested in producing good quality models of actual buildings
  1. Oddly , I was just looking at my copy of Peter's 'Far from the madding main line, a guide to some little known long forgotten & previously unheard of railways of the West Country', and was thinking of the conversation I had with him at Dyrham Park where he was a volunteer. His penmanship was incredible and as for his humour ..... I can easily visualize the railway he will now be working on.
  2. Can someone please enlighten me what is so important about the 'Scotsman? Perhaps I cannot see it having lived in Swindon for 30 years!!
  3. BIG NEWS For any one intending to come and you aren't quite sure where the church is just Google the following 'st mary's church yate' and the correct location will come up. I've finally got Google to get the location right. Also for any one intending to come by bus or train go to this link to download the times and so forth; http://www.sodburyva...train_times.jpg Plus a copy of the programme can also be downloaded at http://www.sodburyva...s/2015_Prog.pdf Colin aka [email protected]
  4. What Tim didn't mention is that not only is our Exhibition disabled friendly but I am also bringing some GLUTEN FREE cakes along Oh and my new Stockton Lock will be on show.
  5. On Saturday 26 January I will be exhibiting at my 'home' club annual exhibition. Not only will I be showing my 009 Yate Rocks Tramway but it will also be the first public viewing of my new 009 Stockton Lock. Stockton Lock is an 'Ikea Billy bookcase layout' being designed to fit onto a bookcase, hence it's relatively small size. It is based on Stockton Brook Lower Lock on the Caldon Branch of the Trent and Mersey Canal. As the narrow boats exit down through the lock they pass under the soon to be restored Caldon Branch of the 'Knotty', and which is being restored by the City and Moorlands Railway.
  6. Saturday 26 January, and St.Mary's Church and Hall at Yate in South Gloucestershire will see a great selection of layouts including my own Yate Rocks Tramway and my new Stockton Lock. Both of these layouts are 009, however Stockton Lock is an 'Ikea Billy Bookcase layout', being designed to 'live' in my railway books library. We always have great cakes at our exhibitions, and as I am a 'coeliac' I shall be bringing along some of my home-made gluten free goodies - if only to eat my self!!!
