Hope you are all well, have been doing a bit of decorating so work on the model has taken a bit of a back burner this last week or so, I managed to find some time to start the first bit of weathering, so out with the airbrush, the result…….. paint and loose ballast flying […]

The Iron Jungle-Gym of the Girder Gibbon

It’s funny how a name can come to you out of the blue, and also how some things can take a lot longer than you could ever expect…

Well my three enjoyable weeks making this layout is almost over, it is nearly finished! The only work to do is add more people, mainly on the station, add a Gaugemaster track cleaner, add further fencing and a gate to the engineers yard and finally weather  the track and buildings further. I really hope it […]

After a bit of a slog I finally finished the important but sometimes tedious job of the ballasting, after laying the floor for the Freightliner shed, making a path I filled the gaps left to do this part of the layout so now the ballast is all placed. Next job is to crack on with […]

The Model Railways of Oly Turner and Chris Matthews

The last month has seen intermittent progress on the layout, there have been some massive steps forward but to look at it until today you wouldn’t really have known. First up, it works! I’ve successfully rigged up my Gaugemaster Prodigy under the layout running to a pair of connection sockets tucked away under each corner […]

We’d just about recovered from Gaugemaster, and it was time to set up another layout for Thursday’s club night.  A small circuit duly appeared, and eight members enjoyed running time.  One or two of the weekend’s bargains were tested out….. Not much else to report, but a busy railway weekend follows…. And more video of […]

Next to us was the ‘OO’ modern image Oak Road.  Based on Castle Cary station, the scenery captured the local Shepton Mallet hills very well.  Lots of HST’s running by (but not photographed), and some fine modern diesels.  We commented that Allan’s ‘N’ DB 66 looked very small compared to this ‘OO’ one!   Gas […]

We took a 3×1 modular layout to the Gaugemaster show. This really seems to be an optimum size, easy to transport and set up and large enough to impress at the show. The only drawbacks are the duck-under (crawl under for us oldies) and the lack of space at the centre of the layout. It […]

Good to see 12 persons at last night’s meeting – and the treasurer was delighted that some of them even paid up their annual subs! We got Raysden out of Derek’s garage for the evening.  We wanted to take it to the Gaugemaster show, but also wanted to check that it has survived the hot […]

Some ESNG club updates for all and sundry…. We will be exhibiting at the Gaugemaster show over the first week in September, at their shop in Ford, near Arundel.  We’re taking the usual modular layout, but with some different modules.  We were there two years ago, and it was a good show with plenty to […]
