Last meeting saw the progress on our club layout. Some support legs have been built for it and the top altered for the final board. Photos showing this are above being the first 2. The last one is showing how the station building is coming along. We also had our running track up and had quite a few visitors and I believe a new member as well.

The next meeting is this coming Sunday in which the running track shall be up. Usual time and place at Sompting Village hall.

Hi, will you be open for the test track this month?

Best wishes,

We had a group discussion at our last meeting about our running track about putting the Scale 7 track as the outside circuit with a passing loop and moving one of the finescale to the inside circuit and whilst the tracks up smoothing over some of the baseboard joints where at the previous storage room was the boiler room at Heene Road. I'd at the February meeting packed up the middle circuit at the worst dips to improve the running. I won't be transferring departments full time from S&T to pway!!

The work will start at our next meeting which is 18th March Sompting Village Hall.

Next meeting is Sunday 15th April Sompting village hall.

Last meeting we made a start of moving the S7 track to the outside circuit. We took up the S7 track, next move is to put the finescale to the inside and the putting the S7 on the outside. The S7 this time will be on Walnut sleepers with rail chairs instead of being on copper clad. The track will then be on foam underlay

Next meeting is the 20th May with the times of 12:15-19:15. The reason why the longer times is so we can relay the track that's been taken up as have now taken up the outside track in readiness for the S7. Correction to my previous post only the S7 track will be on foam underlay.

Next meeting is the 17th June with the times of 1-5pm. Some track was put down on the the finescale only to later be told it was in the wrong place (centres too close) so looks like some of the track will have to be moved out. Least some foam underlay was susses fully put on the S7 circuit

After discovering that the finescale didn’t work for both tracks, took a bit of time to sort the problems out, missed a few jumper wires out and wired the switches so they worked opposite way round. Eventually had trains running on both finescale and had on on the scale 7 that has been laid, it’ll take a few more meetings to get that finished.

Anyway next meeting is 20th January

Yay back to running trains :sungum:  :sungum: In the process of finishing off the Scale 7 track now. Just a few minor snagging points on the Finescale which wont take too long to sort.

Next meeting is the 17th February at Sompting Village Hall 1-5 pm

I can report the all the Scale 7 track is now laid and has been tested. The wiring is being tidied up underneath and plug coupler wires are being changed to colour coded.

Last meeting the Guild SE area Rep was a guest visitor

 

Next meeting is 28th April (not the 3rd Sunday as believe easter sunday)
