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.
Roof under way what a PITA doing individual tiles.
The tiles are 8 mm X 4mm, 2mm square graph paper was stuck on the card to make the tiles easy to cut.
Hopefully it won't look too rustic once the roof is done and painted the one slipped tile is deliberate.
Being only a very small section of roof any more than one slipped tile would be over doing it.
I can probably add two more slipped tiles on the larger section of roof without over doing it.
The start of another year with this well-travelled time-served microlayout! The layout gets a once fortnightly test prior to its first exhibition in February.
The 4ft long Christmas Tree box for transporting the layout didn't work as I nearly dropped it! So the box went to Stowmarket Railway Club for transporting G scale track.
So back to normal car boot loading for New Walmington Pier!
Absolutely nothing has happened yet other than selling the Bachmann MPV asit would be too cumbersome for a micro layout, but I was in Worksop today visiting a smal (and I mean small) exhibition!
Took these on my travels:

All around our world different engineers designed vehicles which seemingly suited the circumstances with which they were dealing.Across the British railway network, and particularly on some of the light railways which sprang to life after the Light Railways Act 1896, there were a number of unusual locomotives and railcars.This article focusses on two locomotives - Gazelle and Old Chainey.http://rogerfarnworth.com/2020/01/02/unusual-small-locomotives-and-railcars-part-1
Three further unusual locomotives/railcars. ....The first was the first Michelin Pneumatic-Tyred Railcar (Type No.9) in the UK. The second are locomtives designed to serve the narrow gauge lines in The Guinness Factory i Dublin and a clever conversion vehicle which allowed the same locos to proviide traction on the Irish Standard Gauge as well. The third are railcars that were used by Colonel Stephens on a number of his Light Railways. .... http://rogerfarnworth.com/2020/01/03/unusual-locomotives-and-railcars-part-2
