Ah, the Kingfisher Shopping Centre, see what you did there. :)

 

Is there a video of the layout at the exhibition at all?

Hi SVRlad

 

Thanks for your continued interest in our layout project

 

Unfortunately we did not take any moving pictures at the show but we will in due course be taking some film of the layout as we continue to refine the operation

We have a tradition of using local names for our layouts started over 50 years ago with the first layout the club constructed and so Smallwood comes from a district name in Redditch where the club was based for many years and as you have spotted our shopping centre has the same name as the one in Redditch town centre

By the way sorry there were no trains in the pictures as I took the pictures after the show in the club room

Enjoyed visiting your show on the Sunday.

Smallwood was my favourite layout. I like the run down look of the layout.

Hi Shaun,

 

Thanks for posting the pictures of Smallwood

 

You were not the only visitor to think that Smallwood was best in show. However we make a point of not giving the best in show award voted by the visitors to one of our club layouts. Unlike some model railway exhibitions we like to celebrate the quality of our visiting layouts

The latest addition to Smallwood are the fuelling points on the DMU siding and a tank wagon to feed them with fuel. The tanker is an adapted one from a Dapol kit which has been permanently fixed down to the layout complete with the feed pipe into the small brick building alongside the wagon
