Pictorial record of the building of 'The Box' and Club Layout.

BUILDING 'THE BOX'
Lets get started.
Concentration.
Nice set of wheels lads.
Remember to tighten the bolts.
How many men does it take?
Nearly there now.
Gently does it.
Only just!!
Sparks
More sparks
Baseboards
Deep in discussion.

Trimmed boards in position to show the 15ft x 19ft 0 gauge test track.

00 GAUGE LAYOUT DEVELOPMENTS.
The masking tape is showing where the railway lines will be. The curve on the left of the photo is an 009 industrial line on a gentle slope from the back ledge to a harbour. The tape in the middle of the board, running front to back of the layout is a river and estuary mouth.









We are now getting down to work on the scenics of the 00 layout.






The 0 gauge test track is coming along nicely now, the edges are being applied and the size is quite impressive!!







It's middle of May and getting nearer to our open day and also Cambrian Railex but as you can see progress has been made, mainly due to a number of members who are willing to give up their spare time between shows....thanks to them especially Pat on the 00 team.











It's all systems go now - both the 00 layout and 0 Gauge Test Track are coming along......






















Getting to grip with points on the 00 layout.





1st LOCO ON THE 0 GAUGE TEST TRACK although we have only laid track on 1 section at the moment....... watch this space!



Club member Nick, proud owner of the GWR loco.

0 Gauge members looking pleased with the progress ......only another 11 to go chaps!!

00 layout looking good.





End of November and 0 gauge members are hard at work to get the track laid ready for the Open Day at Christmas.







FIRST 0 GAUGE TEST TRACK DAY 11th MARCH 2014























AND THE 00 GAUGE LADS WERE HARD AT WORK TOO WITH THE WIRING AND HAD A FIRST RUN OF A LOCO ON THE LAYOUT.







A GRAND DAY WAS HAD BY BOTH MEMBERS AND VISITORS....... AND THEY ALL DESERVED A WELL EARNED REST AT THE END OF THE DAY.





WELL AFTER MONTHS OF HARD WORK, OUR 00 EXHIBITION LAYOUT, HARBOUR STATION, WON BEST IN SHOW AT THE ELLESMERE MODEL RAILWAY SHOW, SEPTEMBER 2014, ON ITS FIRST OUTING - WELL DONE CHAPS!!! More photos on shows page....
