New Gallery goes live

I am pleased to say that after much testing and, indeed, uploading of photographs by one of our members, our new picture gallery is up and running.

All of the pictures from the old gallery are there in addition to a few new ones. BUT we need lots more. So we welcome members of the public viewing the gallery and, if, indeed, you would like to send us any photos of our layouts or exhibitions (to webmaster@brmrc.co.uk) please feel free to do so.

For members, and this is the big change, so long as you are logged in, you can upload your own photographs into existing galleries or create your own new gallery for your photographs. Peter has tested it thoroughly so you shouldn't have any problems. Once you have uploaded your photographs they won't appear immediately but will have to be authorised by myself or another gallery administrator as a safeguard against spamming and the like.

So, please don't hesitate - enjoy the galleries and upload your own pictures of your layouts, club layouts, our exhibitions, club outings and/or prototypes.

BRMRC Juniors help Network Rail

A team of BRMRC Junior members have built a small model railway for Network Rail to show some of the hazards and dangers associated with railways.

An event was held at Rose Hill School in Bognor Regis for the layout to be presented to Network Rail and they are well pleased with it.

You can see the layout and one of our team of juniors, Callum, talking about it on this video - https://youtu.be/QHGVFtupHrc

Small mention in the Railway Gazette:

Network Rail:

We are very proud of our Junior section and this is just one example of why this is the case. They really are the jewel in the crown of an already sparkling club.
