Remember this is part of the L&DMRC archive section- it does not represent the current situation on layout availability, costs or process.
Some of the layouts are no longer available for exhibition or have been dismantled.
If you are interested in ascertaining which current L&DMRC layouts are available to exhibit, please contact their club secretary.
Available,Nearing completion or “In Planning”
Although a relatively small club, its membership is active in a wide range of model railway scales and interests. This list of layouts, exemplifies these interests and includes those under construction or in planning. They are provided as a help to exhibition managers in selecting potential invites for future years.
Having a small membership, does mean that we are limited to the number of exhibitions per year that members or club layouts can attend. The distance from our base near Liphook, on the Hampshire/West Sussex/ Surrey borders is usually restricted to a 50 miles radius, but further distances will be considered.
For exhibitions, club members claim actual fuel costs. The club quotes expenses at the time of booking based on each car used to transport layout and/or operators at 25p per mile. A small donation to our club funds would be welcome
All our newly designed layouts can be transported in members cars, so as to avoid van hire.
For members layouts, arrangements as specified by the layout owner, but generally similar to the rates quoted above. If help is given by other members, the layout owner may request a small club donation in the expenses.
