  1. During a Zoom call of modelling friends this evening it was asked why 'the bunk'? when referring to branch line trains in the Wilts/Oxfordshire area. The trains on a number of branches were called the 'Calne Bunk', 'Malmesbury Bunk', 'Abingdon Bunk' etc. To be honest, until this evening I'd not come across this term. Anyone any ideas?

    Excellent work Kevin! Looking forward to see this one progress.

    Very sorry to hear this. Geoff was behind a number of some very good shows in the area.
  4. The End of the Line was to be at Stow on Sunday. Hopefully we'll make it another time.
  5. Many thanks to those who supported the show, visitors and exhibitors alike. All in all a good day but I expect there are some weary characters today amongst the club members.
  6. Everything coming together now for tomorrow's show. There is a preview on the club website. See https://www.sodburyvalemrc.co.uk/2020-exhibition-preview-slide-show/

  10. 4298 at rest A JLTRT 42xx by David Thomas displayed in his O Gauge shed diorama. Taken at the GLOSGOG Show on 24 March 2019.
  11. Due to the current weather and that, even if it stops snowing, the conditions under foot around the church and school are likely to remain treacherous well into Saturday, it has been decided to cancel the show. Thanks for the interest and hopefully we'll have better luck with the weather next year.
  12. TEOTL is still going on and on! 2019 show bookings are: 20 January - Astolat Model Railway Circle Show (Guildford) 6/7 April - Cheltenham 3/4/5 May - Bristol (Thornbury) 2 August - Stratford upon Avon 26/27 October - Taunton
  13. I echo the above. The quality of the layouts at the show was superb with good trade support. It was busy from the opening and it hardly died off until right at the end of the day. Catering was excellent too. Well done guys.
