Newport MRS in association with NAGNAG (the Newport and Gwent Neighbourhood Area Group of the Scalefour Society) are holding our third biennial* open day on on Sunday 4th March 2018 10:30 to 16:00 at Shaftesbury Community Centre in Evans Street, Newport, NP20 5LD
The open day isn’t meant to be an exhibition rather an opportunity to chat with fellow modellers and share a few experiences. The layouts won’t be operating as they would at a conventional exhibition giving visitors and club members alike a chance to swap tips and thoughts. Hopefully visitors will have the opportunity to run one or two of their locos too - Finescale O gauge (DCC or DC, 31.2 mm), P4 (DCC) and N gauge (DC) are all covered.
Full details to follow but pencilled in are:
Little Mill Junction P4, DCC
Abergavenny Blackbrook P4, DCC
Bwthyn y Rhosod, O gauge, operated with R/C Battery-powered locos or DCC (see below)
Brade's Siding, O gauge, DC
Mike Edmunds' American N gauge Roundhouse
Fred Lewis, the Welsh Wizard, demonstrating aspects of loco building
Justin Newitt and Rumney Models
