Yeap, for about 7 or 8 years now I have been into model railways and am a member of my local club here in Plymouth. Sadly I don't have the room to put up my own layout, but at the clubrooms we have several test tracks which allow me to run full length HST
's and decent sized block freight trains.
The club also has three exhibition layouts which are taken around the country, some having appeared at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham, anyone who reads the UK Model Railway press may know the names;
Seawall N Gauge model of the Dawlish Sea Wall in Devon.
Friary New OO
Gauge interpretation of a new station in Plymouth.
Great Snoring OO
Gauge model set in East Anglia.(might not have appeared in the mags yet).
I have a couple of layouts; a 3ft x 12ft end to end OO
depot layout which is awaiting the electronics to be finished before it goes to another exhibition and an ultra small 6ft by 1ft 009 layout based on a Dartmoor quarry, this has yet to be finished though and is still cluttering up my bedroom much to the annoyance of everybody else in the house. Stock wise all of the 009 is either scratch build or kit built, but my collection is pretty small of this gauge. Most of my stock is 00, I have about 70 locomotives, just about all of them post privatisation Diesels such as classes 08, 09, 31, 37, 47, 56, 57, 58, 60, 66, 67, 158, 159 and 170.
Its a great hobby to have, but can get highly addictive!
