Putnam - November update

Putnam will not be running during the Club's Open Day on November 20th.  The lower hall will be given over to the Club's wonderful Copenhagen Fields layout, which is a good reason in itself to come along on Sunday.

Several members of the Putnam group will be present on the day, helping out in various capacities.  They will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Putnam - October update

Following Putnam's last showing at the London Festival of Railway Modelling in March, work has commenced on expanding the side of the layout away from public view.  The storage sidings, now shared with the clubs a-building modern image OO gauge layout Ingatestone, are being increased from 8 to 13 lines.  The Club's carpentry whizz has grafted on extensions to the baseboards and work is well underway on the trackwork.  Once that is complete it will be a case of all hands below decks as we get stuck into the wiring.

Getting ready for Alexandra Palace

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_4613.JPGPutnam will be among the 40 layouts appearing at the London Festival of Model Railways.  The team have been putting in extra hours to finish a number of mini-projects before we pack everything away ready for transportation 'up the hill'.  Visually there are a number of new buildings along the back of the yard, and a number of bigger and better handmade trees on the more rural end board.  Equally important are a number of re-wiring exercises which aim to improve resilience.  All of which helps make Putnam better than ever.  Come along to Alexandra Palace on March 19th and 20th and see the layout, and feel free to pose any questions you have to the operators.
