Model Trains in the Valley 2019- The 10th Annual Open Day of the Liphook & District Model Railway Club

Sunday 27th October 2019

In its 55th year the L&DMRC put on another good Open Day event with 4 fine layouts in N HO and OO covering German and British subjects.

Unfortunately the complete change in the weather from the Saturday- very wet and dismal to Sunny and dry on the Sunday seem to have had an effect on potential visitors on this first Sunday of the half term

Those who didn’t attend missed an enjoyable day chatting about model trains, watching some fine layouts and having some great cake!

The participants including the Milland Valley Railway Modellers demonstrating some scenic work and tree making, had a great low key day, with lots of chat and a bit of modelling. Thanks to the L&DMRC for inviting us.

Visit to L&DMRC workday

Popped into see L&DMRC lads hard at work on Lavender Hill and Friedrichstrasse layouts for their forthcoming Open Day. Dark chocolate biscuits handed over!

Friedrichstrasse looking particularly fine. Hope they get a good crowd on Sunday 27th October

Distribution day for Railway Magazine Guide to Modelling

Made my monthly visit to Liss Village Hall to see the Liss Model Railway Group doing their thing and deliver mags. Always a friendly bunch and got an invite for MVRM to exhibit at one of their forthcoming open days.

Dropped into the MVMH, home of the L&DMRC but as us usual this is well before their starting time of 19.30, so left the copies on a chair. Smart new floor covering in the Committee Room!
