We had an excellent weekend at Expo EM in May, with the layout working (almost) faultlessly throughout, despite not having been exhibited for almost three years. The operating team also performed at the top level, and I’m pleased to say we won the Peter Denny award for ‘the most authentically operated layout’. Chris’s Royal Train had its first public outing.
We came away with a list of improvements, and have been working through those in the past couple of weeks.
Our next show will be Warley in November.
The E2 is making steady but rather slow progress. The sheet metal work is almost complete, and then I’ll be moving on to the fittings. Chris’s next project will be a B2.

The Brighton Circle e-group has recently started producing a twice-yearly digital ‘Modellers’ Digest’ which contains articles of particular interest to modellers of the LBSC of all scales and eras, and potentially other pre-group modellers. The latest edition of the Digest can be found here.
This website contains details of my current layout ‘Plumpton Green’ together with the Mid-Sussex Group’s layouts, plus photos and descriptions of various techniques I have used over the years. The layouts and models here are all built to Protofour standards (4mm:ft). Pulborough and Plumpton Green are both available for exhibition.
All of the photos and drawings should open a larger version in a new window if you click on them.
