THE TROON SHOW IS OVER

I do not think we have ever had such an easy set up for a show as we had on Friday 18th May. 

Then the show opened to the public at 10.00 a.m. on Saturday 19th May. We had a good turn out of members to help which made the operation of the layout a relatively easy task.

Our location in the upstairs section of THE WALKER HALL, in Troon with, behind our layout space  large windows which looked out over the Firth of Clyde. You could not ask for a better location than that which we had. (see the views below).

On the left are the Clydeside operating crew, minus the Web Master, he is behind the camera. Two further members boosted the Saturday crew. 

In addition to our display there were several outstnding model railways, This is a show to make note of. If next years show, which they are promising will be in the same place, is half as good as this one it will be worth your entry fee. Below are two of the other layouts..

On the left is an 'O' gauge switching (shunting) layout. SECOND (HAND) YARD.

You web master spent 40 minutes solving a complex switching routine on this layout.

On the right is BACHDALE AND DISLEY a OO9 narrow gauge line, This won the 'best in show' award. The operator was happy to remove roofs to display incredibly well detail interiors. Right down to a toilet roll in the loo.
