Malcolm Harrison’s latest loco – a 3D printed body heavily modified so as to use a Fleischmann 0-4-0 chassis rather than a Kato tram chassis (Phto: Andy Holt) Our February meeting was a modelling session at the Reading Rooms, Great Gransden. We were able to congratulate two of our members in particular: Malcolm Harrison’s layout […]

We had two meetings this month. The first was our Christmas lunch, which had been postponed because of snow on the original December date. It was strange wishing people ‘Merry Christmas’ in the middle of February. The second was a working afternoon hosted by Nick Percival, who also provided the very nice catering. We met […]

Make the most of it, that’s the nearest you’re going to get to a Christmas greeting.

Kelvins Railway Models

Another Heljan product purchased by my Son. I think the model looks very good – however I am totally fed up with bits falling of this model – spoils a very good model. This is a medium weathering job on a ‘out of the box’ product, although unlike the Class 37’s – very little is […]
