The G1MRA website is going through an upgrade! In short term this means the site may look incomplete here and there, but when it is finished you will benefit from new features.
Shepshed is a Gauge 1 event that is open to the public! The location is close to Loughborough in the centre of the country and is near main-line stations and motorways. The halls themselves are light and airy and there will be onsite catering. The event will be attended by several indoor gauge 1 layouts and many traders. Last year's show had over 40 stalls offering ready to run models, kits and parts and hundreds of attendees and this year should be similar. click and then scroll down the page for details
The 80-page quarterly Newsletter & Journal No244 (Winter 2014/15) should be in the post to Members by the middle of January.
Articles include another 2-rail layout, a live steam LMS Turbomotive and a coal-fired Camelback locomotive. To balance the live steam articles there is an article about building a diesel-electric loco and a battery-powered diesel shunter kit. Rolling stock articles include two brake vans, two track cleaning wagons, a BR CCT and the final part of the GWR railcar series.
The usual Group and Trade News pages and trade adverts round off the issue.
