2015 Open Day

Newport MRS in association with NAGNAG (the Newport and Gwent Neighbourhood Area Group of the Scalefour Society) held our second* biennial open day on Saturday 7th March 2015.

Emphasis was on Scalefour, with Bernie Baker's Allt-y-Graban Road, Mike Edmunds’ Cwm Du, the micro-layouts created for the NMRS ‘P4 in A4’ initiative and NMRS’s work-in-progress Little Mill Junction (with working fiddle yard but the remaining boards in bare-board state). 7mm was represented with the club’s O gauge BR(SR) layout, Frecclesham.

Additionally Ian Penberth of PenBits Model Railways  came with some of his wares and the Welsh Railways Research Circle was in attendance.

We got a mention in Scalefour News:

and similar words in the Model Railway Journal! 

There was a poster locally:
