    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.

    • The Kiso Forest Railways - Part C   This next post covers another of the significant 762mm railways in the Kiso Forest. The Ogawa Forest Railway. This railway was connected directly to the Otaki Forest Railway.   http://rogerfarnworth.com/2019/02/21/japanese-narrow-gauge-762mm-lines-part-4-the-kiso-railway-part-c-the-ogawa-forest-railway
    • Started on the next module for my layout, a dip in the board level to accommodate three bridges across a valley. One stayed cable bridge 1.2 meters long, a double steel bow bridge with steel under slung trestles and a stone road bridge, all over a canal, a river and a road. A rough 3D CAD drawing is my design plan. Essentially only the light purple bridge will be bought in, ALL other elements will be scratch built.  
    • The cruise was Shanghai - Nagasaki - Busan - Hong Kong - Ho Chi Minh City - Bangkok - Singapore.
      My railway and tramway visits were at Nagasaki, Hong Kong and Singapore.

      Nagasaki
      Traditional Nagasaki Tram   Hong Kong Hong Kong Trams 34 and 72 at Western Market, once these trams turn the corner, 34 will head east to Shau Kei Wan and 72 will head west to Kennedy Town. Tram 77 passing Wan Chai Pawnbrokers, now a restaurant and bars. Tram 136 about to cross Pedder Street in the up-market part of the city. Happy Valley Racecourse Terminus. Singapore I'm not stranger to this island republic, having been here 17 times in almost 30 years! Singapore Mass Rapid Transit - a 30 years old Kawasaki built train in original livery on the North South Line. 
      Withdrawal and scrapping of all 396 cars of this stock is between 2020 and 2023 as new stock replaces them over the same period. Bombardier C801A Automated People Movers being introduced on the 10 years old Bukit Panjang LRT replacing the Adtranz CX100 cars.  Bombardier C801 and Adtranz CX100 units at work near Bukit Panjang. SMRT Siemans C651 unit recently refurbished leaving the sound screens near Choa Chu Kang. SMRT celebrated Chinese New Year 2019 - Year of the Pig!      
    • The Kiso Forest Railways - Part B   This post covers one of the main logging railway networks in the Kiso Valley. .... The Otaki Forest Railway.   http://rogerfarnworth.com/2019/02/16/japanese-narrow-gauge-762mm-lines-part-3-the-kiso-railway-part-b-the-otaki-forest-railway
    • At Christmas 2018, a friend gave me a book by John Minnis entitled 'Britain's Lost Railways'. It would be natural to assume that this was a book about the different lines that have been lost throughout the UK. This is, however, a book about the lost infrastructure that surrounds the railway, particularly about railway architecture. I have written a short review of the book: http://rogerfarnworth.com/2019/02/16/book-review-john-minnis-britains-lost-railways-a-commemoration-of-our-finest-railway-architecture
