'N' Gauge Section
Work continues to make improvements to the station area of Pendlebury Parva.
'00' Gauge Section
Work has been gathering pace as Vale of Tranmer is due to be exhibited at our show on the 15th and 16th February 2014. We are put all effort into the scenics as most of the electrics has already been completed. The only other electrics to be completed is in relation to the container crane as well as any lights that still need to be sited. The biggest effort is currently being put into the container yard as well as the raised town section.

On the first day back after our Chirstmas Break, lots of work was being completed.
In the 'N' gauge section of the club, much work was completed (not my words!!). More work continued on the new wiring on "Pendlebury Parva".
Quote of the night "Did I really design this!!!!"
In the "OO" section of the club, work has continued on the scenics on "Vale of Tranmer" to get these to a standard that looks realistic. Work continues on the retaining wall & the fiddle yard cassette system. Some minor work was also completed on "Selwyn Quays".
Senic work using real coal.

On the final night of the year at the club, there was much happiness. No, it was not due to the festive spirit, it was at last we have gas for the heaters so we were warm again
In the OO room, work has continued on "Vale of Tranmer" with the last bits of ballasting completed. The Cassette Docks have now been installed & a test cassette has been completed. Testing of the alignment is acceptable so the plan for the New Year will be to complete the rest of the cassettes including making special joiners to connect 2 cassettes together. We will then do a full running test to make sure everything is working ok. Some minor work has continued on "Selwyn Quays".
In the N room, work has continued on "Pendlebury Parva" with work on the electrics with the installation of high tech point control boards.

Work has continued on "Vale of Tranmer" with more ballasting being completed, also the cassette system is progressing with the connectors being installed. The next job will be to place the track in the correct position in each cassette then test that the alignment is correct.
