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.
Track mock up giving approximate siding lengths and positions of portacabins (left) and site trailers (centre and right). The Kibri 'Forestry Set' (Portacabins and trailers) include a decal sheet containing a lot of railway vehicle transfers like UIC 12-digit numbers for rolling stock and plant, ballast tamper, serial numbers, crane data plates as well as markings and plates for the portacabins and trailers. Knowing of these now gives the layout a possible identity, but the buffer-less track machines will narrow the layout down to either a German or Austrian Metro or Tramway Track Maintenance Depot.

Here is a selection of my photos taken on the Saturday, not the best, I’m afraid as a lot of the layouts were very busy and hard to get close to. It seems the GMRC has had quite an effect as there certainly were lots of families in attendance.

Upwell Drove and Elm Lane was a really pretty and very well presented dual layout (in two parts!), wonderful!

Having been corralled into operating on this layout (Great fun, thanks, Bob!), I am embarrassed that I only snapped these shots, D’oh!
