MODEL RAIL SCOTLAND  2019
Model Rail Scotland 2019 which takes place in the Scottish Exhibition Centre, Glasgow on February 22; 23 and 24, 2019 is getting close.
How is our club getting on with preparations?. We are nearly ready too go. The scenic work on our USA layout "CODGERS PASS" is now completely refurbished and operator training has been ongoing for the last few club nights. WE have concentrated initially on the operators becoming familiar with the manual control of the layout. This helps them to understand the routes which the trains take through our mountain scenery, The automatic control system really on;ly requires the layout operator/supervisor to know the routes of the trains and to step in if anything goes wrong.
Below are two scenes from this layout.

PROGRESS ON THE NEW LAYOUT
ABOVE: The first of the two scenic baseboards being assembled by some of our new members. This layout is being used as an introduction to a variety of skills in Railway Modelling. While supervised by some of the seniors and long standing members of the club this exercise will be mainly handled by our newer members.
It is hoped the layout will be complete to be shown at our CATHCART MODEL RAILWAY EXHIBITION, in Glasgow at the end of October this year.
