  1. The minimum gangway width at Trainwest is nine feet. Geoff Endacott
  2. So does black spirit produce white clag? Geoff Endacott
  3. Thanks for the advice so far. He lost most of the sight in one eye some time ago, due to a torn retina, multiple surgeries for which were unsuccessful. He now has a torn retina in the other eye and is recovering from a second operation on that. He can see the screen of his smartphone, but can't read any of the writing. Things may improve and we are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. He has been told not to do any more soldering! The RNIB are involved. What we really need is advice about modelling specific adaptations to help someone who can see light and shade, vague shapes, but not much else. The club is determined to welcome him back whatever we have to do to accommodate his needs. Geoff Endacott
  4. Does anyone have any experience of helping modellers with visual impairments? One of our members is in hospital and, following a less than successful eye operation, is likely to be left with very limited vision. What can we do to help? I would welcome any suggestions from clubs or individuals with experience of this issue because there are a lot of us who want to know what we can do to help, but don't really know where to start. Thanks. Geoff Endacott
  5. That's it - the show is now full. We may have only ten layouts but these include seven different scale/gauge combinations. Geoff Endacott
  6. The Calne show is on the move - temporarily. Building work means that the usual venue, Calne Leisure Centre, will not be available. The show is therefore moving to: Beversbrook Sports Facility, Beversbrook Road, Calne, Wilts., SN11 9FL. Saturday 18th January 10.00 am - 5.00 pm Sunday 19th January 10.00 am - 4.30 pm This will be a smaller show than usual due to the limited space at Beversbrook. There will probably be ten layouts and six trade stands. Admission prices have been reduced accordingly. The layouts booked to attend are: Bottle Kiln Lane (OO9): John Thorne Box Station (N): Morris Stallard Digby South Quay (HO): Richard Smith Grunow (TT): Richard Self Hounslow Sidings (OO): Ray Norwood Launceston Steam Railway (OO9): Richard & Linda Holder Morfa Mawr (EM): Bentley MRG Shunter's Halt (OO): Paul Sim Sutherland Street (N): Michael Holmes Wood Street (O): Swindon MRC Trade: Andy Lynch Brunswick Railways David Smith Books Frome Model Centre Ron Lines Squires Model & Craft Tools Other: Train Rides Adult: £4.00, Child: £2.00, Group (2+3): £10.00. www.calnemrs.org.uk Geoff Endacott
  7. There's a nice photo of Kannotburn on the cover. Geoff Endacott
  8. Exactly - and Bristol Temple Meads. Geoff Endacott
  9. The GWML catenary must cope very well in the heat because they have left a lot of room for expansion. Geoff Endacott
  10. Their website says Education. It's the report which says Excellence. Geoff Endacott
  11. Maybe they should convert the spare HSTs into luggage trains which could follow on behind the IETs. Geoff Endacott
