Sunday Running Trial - "Short Train Sundays" Peter Farrell has kindly offered to open up for short train running on the second Sunday April, May and June, initially from 9am till noon. If there is strong demand, then Sundays may become permanent. The first Sunday in April was a success.
Open Day Our next Open Day will be in June (TBC). Come along and showcase your trains. General public is welcome and a donation assists us in running trains.
We will not have any food available, but drinks can be purchased. Families and children (with a carer) are most welcome from 10am. We have plenty of parking. Note: We do not have wheelchair access.
Your donation on the day helps us maintain our clubrooms and layouts for all to enjoy.
Buy/Sell Regular Members are encouraged to bring along trains and accessories each Saturday to sell. Please have prices labeled. A table will be provided near the kitchen. please label your items and supervise.
Layout News The HO/OO layout continues to have works completed at Harriss Park, with recent electrical works now completed. The new upper level USA section is a work in progress. Works have commenced on the upgrade of the European section and some delays in running can be expected shortly as scenery is removed ready for the new baseboard.
The On30 layout has new scenery at Cosham and Wolgan. The N Gauge has some scenery added recently.
A Reminder... When completing using your locos, please use the Digitrax "Dispatch" function to ensure the main controllers are not overloaded with loco numbers resulting in time down resetting the layout. Most members use the DT 400 series controller, here is a video Guide to learn how to dispatch locos .
Large Consists We welcome members running longer trains. Be mindful of others as long trains on a busy layout can cause frustrations as not all members run trains at the same speed.
When you run your train into a siding or leave the yard, return the points to the same way as you found them, for following modellers.
