    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.

      With Christmas coming, the 66s have begun their comeback. GBRf have sent 66720 and 66731 to Marshfield Junction Stabling Point to take over the Royal Mail service from the EWS 37s, which were prone to failing. Although 66720 has already been stopped with structural issues surrounding bogie (a broken clip I need to repair), due to this DBC have sent 67005, a rare performer to the layout, to cover whilst repairs are taking place. This is 67005's first outing on the layout for 18 months. All this means that 37174/402/417 have all been sent to Margam for storage, bringing to end the current stint of the locos on the layout. Hopefully next year I'll have a rake of PAB wagons made, either by pressing on with my kits or getting my CAD 3D models (which I'm part way through creating) 3D printed. The original rake was 17 long, which I would love to have as it's a local train of mine and has local features on them such as the Anglesey Aluminum logos. More will appear here of them soon I hope. Depending on era/FOC im using at the time, I'll use EWS 37s, 60s and 66s, Colas 56s 60s 66s 70s, Freightliner 66s (really after 2001 when the flow ceased to operate I can use whatever I like). If I successfully make these PABs, maybe I'll try for more of a challenge, maybe the IWA cargowaggon ferry vans? I havent come across a OO version and I'd like a rake of 6 or 7, again due to local use of them to RTZ.  (Maybe building up to a dream layout with a bit of a representation of Anglesey Aluminium on it? Who knows, I keep getting inspired by the likes of Mostyn and Penmaenmawr aswell!)

      And very nice they are too. The portakabins are particularly crisp. Super work.
