Yamanouchi Oshika -withdrawn from exhibition circuit after 2013

The club have decided to withdraw the layout from the exhibition circuit, after it has fulfilled  its exhibition committments in 2013.

The layout which was featured in Continental Modeller twice, has been kept in  the former club room (a member’s insulated and heated garage/railway room) when not being exhibited, since the club vacated in mid 2011. Access from the room to vehicles used for transport includes 90 degree turns and change in level  which requires particular care in the winter exhibition season. The space it currently occupies is required by the member for a new semi permanent layout plus other small portable layouts he has or is planning.

It has yet to be decided if the layout is to be sold or dismantled
