    9. Clubs & Societies

      There are two ways you can get your club involved with the MRL Forums!

      1. You can send the club's details to an administrator to be advertised such as where the club is based, when you meet up and what your website (if you have one) is.

      2. If you want to go the extra mile, you can set up your club's own sub-forum! This will not only allow you to advertise, but also mean you and your members can have a forum of your own to use for your needs.

      What ever you want, all you need to do is send an Administrator a PM to get your Club or Society added here, and outline what you would like from us.

    • Jack's Entry
      Station board looks very classy! I'm developing a love for GWR myself, but the kettle variety, rather than the modern-day franchise. However, very much looking forward to seeing this develop further. Personally, I quite like how it looks crammed in - these days everything is crammed in as much as possible I feel and I think it's a good reflection of that. How are you hiding the exit to fiddle on the left hand side?

      Decided to do the ballasting this afternoon on the layout. Messiest job by far, but necessary. Will patch up the ends later once the glue has dried. I'll also crack on with the buildings once some 2mm card has arrived in the post. Decided to avoid using corrugated stuff as it's horrible to cut straight and looks naff. On a side note, I've finally come up with a name for the station. Presenting... GWR? Yep. Why? Why not! What's in the name? Very little. Moana is in fact the name of a recent Disney film that I've watched (watch it, it's good), and green just makes it sound a little less tacky. I'll be fitting a lower-quadrant semaphore at the end of the platform, and the LM 153 (which'll have its branding removed from one side) will operate along with the GWR green 153 one it comes off the workbench... and maybe a 150 when Bachmann release it!

      As I get out and about quite a bit with work and cycling I thought I'd create a page to put my various sightings on starting today with a tamper named 'Thomas Telford' in the siding at Stone station with some A.P.Webb road railers parked upon the road.
    • Terminus, All Change!
      I wished I was elsewhere this weekend rather than wretched Suffolk! To kill off the boredom I tested 'Terminus - All Change!!!' ready for the March Exhibition next Saturday and at last overcome the problem as to why the Hobbytrain Deutsche Post Car kept stalling on the micro-layout: The layout is two rail DC with dummy overhead. The postal car had a pantograph which pushed so hard against the wire at one spot it resisted the tractive force of the tram. Solution - substitute the pantograph with a Lyre (bow) collector out of my spares box and the car now runs smoothly and the bow flips over when changing direction.and no digital (as in fingers) intervention!!
