Latest Updates - August 2021

Welcome to the brighter side of 2021.
During the pandemic and lockdown months we, at the club, have had some success in completing a few of the projects that were ongoing.

Kelmarsh Hall approached us with the view of borrowing a coal themed layout but as we didn't have one, we decided to build one for them. This is now nearing completion with the delivery date to be confirmed. The layout has a representation of Kelmarsh station on one side and a colliery loading screen on the other.

On the Pacer, we now have a set of steps to allow members and visitors the chance to view 55831 internally. A permanent sets of stairs will be built at the rear of the unit in due course. The Pacer is not available for use at this time.

The new signalling on the 5 inch miniature railway has been thoroughly tested with just a few minor tweaks to be completed and has been confirmed as safe to operate.

Also on the 5 inch gauge railway subject, work has progressed well with the portable track trailer nearing completion. This will allow us to carry more equipment on the trailer as opposed to filling up the backs of cars. The loco box has been engineered to carry 2 locomotives at a time if needed.
