WEST BOURNEGROOM REFURBISHMENT FOR CATHCART SHOW
The Cathcart Model Railway Exhibition will be on Saturday and Sunday 20/21 October 2018, in Pollokshaws Burgh Hall Glasgow
Our club artist has bee en hard at work with the preparation of new back scenes for our WEST BOURNEGROOM layout.The picture on the left shows part of the greatly enhanced scene which now backs the layout.
The opening (top left of the picture) is the entry to the fiddle yard sidings which are known to us as West Bournegroom pier where regular local trains run from the main station. This opening is only visible when the model is viewed from the end. Normal viewing , from the front presents a continuous back scene view as the front back scene overlaps the rear back ground thus diguising the fiddle yard entry.
The next step in the refurbishment is the application of some fresh flocks to brighten up the grassy areas.

MORE PROGRESS ON BAINS REACH
Some mock up cameos have been temporarily put in place to let us see how the model is coming together and to see the relationships between different parts of the layout. Above is our mock up of the re-fuelling area.
The ugly back ground at the left top of the picture above (on the left) is part of our club room storage area.
A lot of effort has been put in recently yo complete the ballasting of the track in preparatio for the layouts appearance at the CATHCART MODEL RAILWAY EXHIBITION - 20/21 October 2018. PLEASE NOTE THE SHOW IS ONE WEEKEND EARLIER THAN NORMAL- Pollokshaws Burgh Hall Glasgow.
