A little look at our latest micro layout project and all for a good cause too! 

 

Sunday 7th July 2019 saw the Warley Model Railway Club open it's doors for their Annual Summer Open Day, featuring a wide selection of the club's layouts and modelling projects on display.

This years event also a very special Modelling Competition, between four teams, featuring many familiar Model Railway YouTuber's.

These 4 teams were;

. Everard Junction & New Junction

. Dean Park Station & Cottesmore

. Cheekytek & Breatherdale Bank

. Myself (SDJR7F88) & 82A Studios

The challenge was to build a small 40cm x 20cm Diorama in the space of 5 hours, using materials kindling provided ScaleModelScenics, Woodland Scenices & WWScenics. Once the time was up, the layouts would be judged and then auctioned off for charity, with the winning Diorama to be displayed at this years Warley National Model Railway Exhibition in November!

In this video, we take a look myself & Adam's time at the event, documenting our teams, and the other competitors builds, as well as a quick look at some of the amazing Warley Club layouts on display.

Hope you enjoy!

I think these micro layouts in a box, by yourself, Chris Nevard and others, are a great demonstration of what can be done to make a start in railway modelling, without a huge outlay. As a pastime, it can be both absorbing and relaxing! And we acquire so many new skills! I have enjoyed watching your progress through your YouTube videos.

I'll say, speaking for myself, as someone who's been in the hobby for almost 50 years that micros, boxfiles, shelf layouts and T-Trak modules are giving me more enjoyment at this stage than anything I've done over the years.

Callum I have been inspired by your wonderful layout and accompanying videos so much so that I hope to build something simular but without the snow if you don't mind. Thanks

Hi Callum it was great to see you at the Hornby weekend, your 1918 layout is awesome and the Christmas layout in a box you built in a box still inspires me. 

It will be interesting to see what you model next time round.

We also taking a closer look at the 1:1 Collection before the doors open to the general public, as well as some of the new and exciting models on the way from Hornby!

Hi Callum it’s always great to see this layout you built. I do like the Christmasy snow theme.

Callum I still like to watch this video of your wrapping paper box build. Can I ask what the baseboard dimensions are as I would like to build something in a wrapping paper box.
