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. Points are being wired and delays are occuring due to club closure.

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 .

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. 2nd and 4th Sundays ideal for long trains.
