The ultimate aim will be to build a portable model railway layout that could be exhibited at local model railway fairs and exhibitions under a U3A banner. The layout will consist of small, modular boards (e.g. 3’ x 1’) that could be transported easily in a small car. Work could be carried out in a hired room such as Albion Court or a public hall. In time it might be possible to use the Organiser’s garage but it’ll be several months before that is ready.
There are various aspects to railway modelling e.g. making buildings, rolling stock, scenery, electrics etc. The organiser will donate some track to start the group off but the first phase would be building the base boards – some carpentry.
