March Model Railway Open day.

The sun shone for the club’s open day which bought over 300 people through the doors of St Peters church hall. With the clubs new layout, plus 3 privately owned layouts, the Junior clubs layout and 3 trade stands there was plenty to see. For the beginners or the mildly  interested there were demonstrations of constructing buildings, rolling stock and scenery construction.

Only half of  the club’s new layout appeared as the fiddle yard had not been completed on time. A temporary electrical system was set up to trial the main display part of the layout which was a complete success. Due to the short lengths of track just loco’s and a DMU running backwards and forwards.
