Monthly Club News

April 2024 : We start this month with continued work on the rewiring of our Arrowmouth layout and the continued work on scenery and construction of building for our new Norgrove layout.

March 2024 :  We started the month by staging the 51st Redditch Model Railway Exhibition over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd March. Taking the brave decision to move the show from September to March was vindicated in terms of the increase in visitor numbers when compared with our shows in recent years. The exhibition also proved to be successful for our trade support as well. We will definitely be back on the 1st and 2nd March next year.  Back on club nights we are continuing to make building for our new Norgrove layout and are starting the rewiring of our Arrowmouth layout to make the operation of it more flexible.

February 2024 :  We started the month with the continued construction of a number of buildings for the Norgrove layout. These include a block of flats, a cinema,  a memorial hall, a supermarket  and a elevated bridge for the dual carriageway road at the one end of the layout. This month we also spent preparing for our 2024 Show on the 2nd & 3rd March with our layouts that were to be on show being tested and items being catalogued for our club sales second hand stand.

January 2024: We started the new year on the 1st January with a club running session of the Temple Bridge layout. Back at club nights we have continued making the buildings for our Norgrove layout. Towards the end of the month we started to make some alterations to the track alignment on our generic fiddle yard ready for its outing to the Model World event in April with our Dagnell End layout. The changes should improve the running of the fiddle yard and turn the layouts that are attached to it.
