  1. nice to meet you again, I have not posted on this forum for some time, but, decided to have a look round this morning and spotted the alert. Bridge of Orchy, now there's a story, I got it as far as the testing stage, and found out how impractical the circular boards were. I eventually scrapped it, and started again with more conventional boards, and got the track to quite an advanced stage, then I got distracted, and built a OO gauge Black country cameo, and an O-9 15” pizza layout, I shall be getting back to BoO in the near future.
  2. Hi Bod, that's going back a bit!, from what I remember I would have chamfered the edges with a wood plane, then sanded them smooth, splintering not been too much of an issue as it was all covered up in masking tape after, hope this helps. Nice project by the way
  3. Cradley heath model railway club Hi all, some of you may of seen an entry in some of the magazine events listings for an open day on the 15th of March, unfortunately, due to a rapid change of circumstances, mainly due to the club moving premises, we have had to postpone this event until further notice. Cradley heath model railway club apologies for any inconvenience caused, and hope we can get the message out before the date, please spread the word. Our next planed event is our annual exhibition on the 10th of October 2020 at Ormiston Academy Cradley heath Thanks Gary Hinson Chairman
  4. Hi all On the 06/02/2020, Cradley Heath Model Railway club were pleased to signed a lease for what will be our new club rooms. This closes a chapter for the club, but opens up a, new exciting one. Our old space was around 320 square feet, the new rooms will be 3100 square feet!. The place at the moment is a disused factory unit, and it is the clubs job to convert it into a space that will accommodate us, within the clubs capability, this means the next few months are going to be hard work. We move from cramped conditions at Cradley Heath Community Centre, which have restricted the clubs ability to grow, into these spacious premises, in the next month. To add, we also have a new bigger and more suitable venue for our show in October, I will post details of this in the exhibition section. I would like to thank my fellow committee members for their hard work on this move, David, Alison, Allan, Frank, Joe, Malcolm, and all who support the club, and have made this possible. If anyone reading this who is not a member, and wants to get involved with our club, please PM me Lets get playing trains ! Gary Hinson, Chair

  18. Hi hoffers, thanks for the kind comments Glenuig has now attended 28 shows!. when i built it some 8 years ago, i would never have had dreamed that it would have become this successful, it still gets more invites to shows that i can accommodate in a year. i will use this opportunity to say to anyone building a layout for the exhibition circuit, build something that is achievable, and do it well. anyway, news on the 2mm project Bridge of Orchy, the original was scraped a few weeks ago, but from the ashes has risen Bridge of Orchy 2, i will report.
