Whilst there was a wedding and some footy on TV, our crack crew of electricians were at Keen House, continuing the rewiring of the layout.

 

The lines are now all working correctly and the new loop on the Down Main is live and running (track will need a bit of fettling). The end of the day should see the Up Main loop connected at the back, but the front Gasworks Board track will need droppers and of course the point motor installed.   Our electrical challenges are being resolved quicker than I feared, so we’ll soon be able to concentrate on the “nice” interesting stuff.

 

Our next booked session is the 8-10th June, please let us know if you are joining us. Then our next exhibition continues a recent Club theme of exhibiting surrounded by the prototype at the LT Museum in Acton on 7/8th July

Professionalism Maintained

The layout running settled in very nicely at the Club's Open Day on 20th November.   Gary has devised a very elegant shuttle mechanism for the underground and Richard's buildings made major progress as he demonstrated today.

The main buildings and roads have been given a more convincing colour wash at the south end (which belies the large amount of work still required) and Mike's eye aching lattice bridges are beginning to look the business on the ramp line.  The goods warehouse will be lowered to single story for three bays near York Road after the next show - it would be more in keeping with the potato warehouses at this site and make the building 'stack up' better

The new J39 has bedded in well and the repaired B17 purred along all day.  The A3, Papyrus, despite a frustrating amount of tweaking, still has a wooden leg and so the chassis will probably be replaced by a 12 hr fine scale replacement - perhaps even in time for Warley.

 

We have maintained professionalism in the Club on York Way as can be seen by one of the photos: probably a senior member of the legal profession in the Jaguar.
