Ask any modeller about their layout and the responses will vary from “I don’t have one at home”, through to “I am currently working on an idea” and then on to “I have just finished my sixth layout”. Yes, Bob Alderman really has produced layout after layout and enjoyed doing so. Others work on a layout for many years tweaking it as they go. For those who either don’t have the money, space or drive to build a layout at home then a club project is an ideal solution. A club layout is also a very useful project for improving your modelling skills and sharing your expertise with others.
