After another days work on the new extension for "Steam on the Cambrian"  The loop is finished and all track and turnouts laid. Some wiring and testing next I think!


Overall view of the module.  Front profile board yet to be finished.

More work soon if the weather holds and I can work outside. The module takes up too much room in the shed!

Cheers

This weekend the 16th-17th August will see me take "Steam on the Cambrian" to one of my favourite shows at the Midland Railway Centre Butterly Derbyshire.

I've always liked this show both as a visitor and exhibitor, it's a great mix between real live prototype stuff and model railways. There is something for everybody what ever your area of interest.

"Steam on the Cambrian" will be located in building 'D' (The old chapel) Stand No 42 so if you plan on visiting do stop by and give us a nod.

You can download the show guide from the RMweb model rail forum here.....

The file is in pdf format so you need Adobe acrobat to open and read it.

 

Hope to see you there

Just picked this thread up last night and now read all the way through, one of those you just have to .... well done! :)

I'd seen the morfa bach bit in the blogs earlier and meant to follow, but to be honest the blogs are hard to keep up with and until recently had a very slow connection here, which didnt help. 
seen modular layouts before but they dont seem to have had the same forethought or scenic impact, did wonder what happened to the original halt you built as Morfa Bach? as dont think it has appeared on any of the modules yet, was there not room for it on the original morfa bach scheme?
