Warley, Portsea and Allbroke

This weekend is the Warley Model Railway show - one of the major events in the railway modelling calendar.

Amongst the attendees are Paul Hopkins and John Wakeman with Redford Junction, a TT masterpiece. Once they have been to Warley Paul will have attended 19 exhibitions this year, supporting BRMRC and the 3mm Society, and that has involved 31 days of exhibitions, travelling over 3,800 miles. Additionally, Redford Junction was the first 3mm layout ever to be exhibited at the Great Electric Train show at Gaydon, and he has managed to have an article included in the December 2015 edition of the Railway Modeller, which is the third consecutive year with an article in the Model Railway press. Excellent stuff Paul!

In the meantime, the national group supporting narrow gauge modelling in or about 7mm scale, the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association has, in the latest issue of Narrow Lines, its bi-monthly high quality magazine, an article by our very own Doug Meany on his layout - the Allbroke Estate Railway. Once again BRMRC is mentioned in the article and, of course, the layout has been to a number of exhibitions.

It is pleasing that our members are out flying the Club's flag both in person and in print.
