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.
Model Tram layouts don't have that much operating potential, but following my 'Eureka Moment' a few days ago on my 'All Cars Stop Here 所有的汽车停在这里' where I decided that a service disruption adds operating interest (of sorts) so here is my 'modus operandi'
Engineering works or a service disruption has resulted in trams being stopped short and reversed back into service on this microlayout. The front (westbound) tram shelter is empty and used for alighting passengers and the back (eastbound) tram shelter is overcrowded with passengers waiting to board the tram that has reversed.
Works Car 400 starts and ends the sequence with arriving at the temporary crossover site and stabling then leaving after all the passengers cars have left.
Safety Training Car 888 is static and is just an 'ornament' on the layout!
Nor do I get backache operating it now!!!
The accompanying photos explain all.... .

Apologies for the long title for this thread. I was challenged by someone who read my posts about the Bicester Military Railway and about MoD Kinston to look at the Nescliffe Camp.
I have started by looking at the feeder railway which was commandeered by the military and this has become a post in its own right. I will get round to the military areas in the next post in the series.
