I'm sure that there's something in the club rules that prohibits such actions............. :wink:


I'm planning on being there, all things being equal

Hmmmm, so what do I do now with the Club test track that's sitting in my van? :shock:

So the plans to build a Club Loco are a non-starter? I've got a Lister D for the power unit :wink:

I think it would probably work on dual track G9, if the tracks were placed 3' apart :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Barry,
For the non-club test track how about a container terminal on one side :?:
I thought the one at Gt Yarmouth where I've been working could be a possibility.

You can just make out my Freelander in front of it :roll:
Gauge is approx 22.5m :shock:
So at 1/24 scale you could also run the Lister on it :wink:

I think I'd use the Felixstowe ones, I've been up on one of them :D

At 1:22.5 the gauge works out at 1 metre, I think we could handle that :mrgreen:

Hi all

Good to see you all again, it felt a long time since the Dereham show.

After Barry had given us a round-up of the comments made at the show I am sure that with a little fine tuning Gn15 presentation will be even more eye catching.
Thanks again to Barry for transportation and doing all the arangements.
Smithie's Yard is on the work bench for a few minor changes and an upgrade of some of the details, so I hope it will be more interesting to the public to view.

Ralph
