With a huge amount of much appreciated support from members, South Junction had an enjoyable visit to Taunton. We were made most welcome by the host club, Taunton School being an excellent venue, and the catering was superb. It was pleasing to hear that numbers were up on last year. The customary wide variety of trains were run on South Junction with things only occasionally getting out of hand. The new warm white LED lighting appeared very yellow in the hall and we may revisit the mix of light strips used. After this rare and exciting outing South Junction was partially re-assembled in a slightly different position in CS2. To enable this to happen Yeovil Town was moved towards The Summit.
Yeovil Town is now assembled after some of the layout boards were taken away for work and PaulH will now be spending much of his time in CS2 to get this fully automated layout working.
The new extension boards for Holly Junction have appeared and are residing inside the layout.
The new Evercreech New baseboards continue to progress. Two diagonals have been installed and trimmed to size. Note that we are going to put two further diagonals in place (one is behind the glue tube) to help stiffen up the structure. A method of transportation was also discussed. This involves being able to rotate the board onto its edge to save space in the van. More on this when the idea develops.
