3mm Society, Railway, Terriers A1 & A1x, Wimblehurst Road

Pevensey Show

Well survived the show. Unfortunately the layout suffered from the heat and the track shifted causing the board joints to move. I also had to Jerry rig the wiring as had no power.

On the positive side a few notes to self for the future

  • Make a note of your wiring
  • Develop a non electrical solution for point control
  • Improve layout wiring
  • Do not use recycled wiring
  • Test your stock
  • Unify couplings
  • Despite the heat it was an enjoyable exhibition and I would like to thank Mr P and Mike for their company and help on the day – onwards & forwards.

    7mm, Railway, Terriers A1 & A1x

    Hayward’s Heath MRE

    Myself and Mr P paid a visit to the Hayward’s Heath Show held at the Dolphin Leisure Centre. Apart from the parking which was horrendous (found that Mr P is very good at reversing his car down a long road!) the show held in 2 halls was pretty good.

    A variety of scales (alas no 3mm) some decent layouts were on show. We also met a few Society members both 3mm and O.16.5 so had a good chinwag too.

    Unlike a lot of exhibitions these days a decent guide was provided too.

    Here are the photos

    Normandy Group O Gauge Layout

    On the way down to Weymouth this morning popped into the Mid Hants at Alresford with the good Mrs D for breakfast.

    Being their Spring Gala weekend they had a Model railway layout in the old goods shed.

    The Normandy O gauge group are locally based and came along with their SR shed layout. Lovely modelling along with some lovely locos.

    As you can see plenty Dapol RTR on Show with a plethora of Terriers!

    Being upstairs also gave an opportunity to see the stuff stored out the back. Amongst the berthed coaches was the BR Standard 2-6-4t being restored.

    Also hanging on the wall is the nameplate for Sir Fredrick Pile.

    After our visit we adjourned to the West Country buffet on the station for an egg bap each – lovely!

    A short unexpected visit but always a pleasure 😊

    Home from Stuttgart, and the lounge is again full of railways.  They will go upstairs to the loft tomorrow, when I have a little more energy.  We had another excellent week at the Stuttgart N-Club International meet.  On the whole, the layout behaved very well, though there were a few electrical issues needing rewiring as…

    3mm London Area Group

    Another very informative meeting, this time on the pros and cons of chassis building.

    I gave the sorry tale of my Terrier chassis – determined to get it to work!

    Tony Briddon brought along his competition winning Duchess which runs as good as it looks.

    We also had a SE&CR O running (13.5 but able to go round the 14.2 test track).

    Andrew Barnes brought along some of his lovely coaches

    And for good measure a scratchbuilt SE&CR class C 0-6-0 which did quite a few circuits!

    There was an example of an 0-6-0 chassis

    And then Group discussion

    All finished off with a couple of pints in the Parcel Yard – a good end to the day 😊
