Will Wenlock be at the wedding too? (Maybe you could rename it Wedlock for the day.)

Sadly i feel that will make it a very short marriage!

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Cheers

Evening all,

So this becomes my first Wenlock post as a Married man! No the layout didn't attend the big day!

And so begins the 2019 round up, an interesting year to say the least. We began mid extension with the farm board only having the track laid and wired. And now we end fully scenic and three shows under the now longer Wenlock's belt:
N Gauge Southeast in April
Bournville in August
Wellington in October

Not only that but we're now running in 4 different eras!

2020 is set to be just as big with an update article due to appear in Railway Modeller in the first quarter, a trio of 56XX tanks will be gracing the line and I've got 3 shows currently lined up for 2020:
Wombourne 7th March
Severn Valley Railway 2/3rd May
Bakewell 6/7th June

As fsr as updates the the layout general detailing is the name of the game woth one potentially large change in the pipeline, but I'm holding my cards close to my chest on that one for now!

See you on the circuit!

Cheers

Ollie

Afternoon all,

Welcome to a long overdue mega-update! And I will start with the news that I've had to withdraw from the Bakewell show due to the impending arrival of a new modeller to the family! Not due until end of July but the logistics of me being away for a weekend mean I'm rescheduling Bakewell until 2021

Next up a report from what became an interesting day at Wombourne  to say the least! The show itself was very good, always seemed busy and the hosts were excellent. However, the layout had a few issues. One half of the lighting rig decided to shed a wire so we had no lights, and to top it off the loco release on the station loop lost power so we couldn't run around.... well until it suddenly started working again at 3PM! Because of this latter issue I took the decision to run the whole day in preserved guise as I could get away with top 'n' tailing services. Not my ideal situation but I'm glad that I now run multiple eras, otherwise I may have been stuffed. Thanks to Leigh of Leigh St George for being co-operator and providing some guest stock to add to the variety we ran!




Our next update requires you all to go out an dpick up a copy of Railway Modeller. Wenlock is back in the press with an article detailing the recent extension and the multi-era running.


So lots has been happening! Next up is currently the SVR Open House in May, but we'll ser what the situation is closer to the time! This will however, be the last show until mid-2021 with baby due!

Cheers

Ollie
