 Chairman’s Chatter

We successfully exhibited Redbridge Wharf at Alexandra Palace with very good comments made to us at the show and ‘social media’ comments since. It was hard work for all, and I would like to thank again EVERYONE who was involved and who made it an excellent outing. Roll on Warley!

Exhibitions are becoming more frequent and this is all good advertising for the club, especially the more local shows.

00 Gauge Matters

Thanks to a huge club effort Redbridge Wharf enjoyed a highly successful outing at Alexandra Palace, with public perception continuing to be one of amazement at what we have achieved. A big thank you to all club members who contributed in some way to this notable achievement, even if you were not part of the show. We look now towards another big show in November at Warley. A feedback and learning points meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 20th April, details to follow.

 EM gauge matters

I would like to repeat my thanks to those who have expressed their interest in getting Morgan Porth to exhibition at Micheldever Station on the 8th of May. Earlier in the year we proved the basic electric circuits were still working after its layover. We have only a few Wednesdays from now to get the layout fit for showing!

The organiser is working on a plan to have the layout at the Station itself.

 0 Gauge matters

I have omitted the usual 7mm running evenings for April and May as we shall be prioritising the repairs to the scenery from the rear of the layout. Hopefully we can then return the layout to its normal position. During the next few weeks, I would like a firm decision on the changing of the ‘loom’ arrangements with a view to lightening the ‘enigma’ to ease movement etc. In moving the layout around we can also continue with the lightening of the baseboards.

Other Business.

 As you will now know I am in touch with Swanage to arrange another club outing, with a view to visit the signal box whilst there. I am waiting for more planning details from the contact to plan timings a bit better and also their timetable has yet to be announced in detail
