Hi All,

Route's End 2 made its debut in its rebuilt form at the Ipswich Transport Museum and despite it being a very cold building, the layout worked well and was well received.



It has been booked for The One Model Railway Club exhibition at Needham Market on 23 August and photos of it will appear in an issue of the Model Bus magazine.

Cheers,
Dave

Hi John,

Arm is getting better but i'm undergoing physiotherapy which may last up to a year. The Ipswich Transport Museum show was my first exhibition since the accident and thanks to my co-operator Barbara and me wearing my splint all day, I got through it all!

Cheers,

Dave

Glad to hear the arm's mending.

All 3ft 6ins (1.067m) x 7ins (0.178m) of it!

Just been exhibiting Route's End 2 at the One Model Railway Club's first exhibition in Needham Market (One was the brandname of our local train operator now called National Express East Anglia).

My often temperamental MBTA car got even more temperamental and as I had my new Trackmobile with me, I withdrew the tram and added the Trackmobile as a 'tug' moving the MUNI car (with pantograph down) between sidings and station. (The reality being that contrasting motor speeds gave the impression the the MUNI car being towed).

The Muni car left the station under its own power with the pantograph up.



Apologies for the poor quality - its my mobile phone camera.

This was an interesting and often demanding operating sequence which certainly held mine and the punters attention.

Hi all,

Just returned from exhibiting Route's End 2 at the Macmillian Cancer Support Model Railway Exhibition at Wellingborough, Northants. and here's some photos taken on my mobile:


The terminus end with newly extended siding holding an ex BR Bachmann Plasser Work vehicle.


Both trams worked well this time and here they are in the stabling sidings.


My friend Barbara 'Piermistress' operating in between eating cream cakes!

I am seriously considering selling this layout after July 2009. the reason for after that date is that the London Festival of Model Tramways at Kew Bridge, takes place in late July.

Cheers,

Dave
