March 2018

Once again Les Nixon very kindly agreed to judge our annual Photographic Competition. Despite the large number of entries, Les was able to offer helpful comments on each photograph before going on to select the first, second and third place winners in each of the three categories (shown in the slideshow alongside). from the three first place winners, the members present selected an overall winner.

April 2018

The 2018 Model Railway Exhibition was held on the weekend of 28th and 29th April. The traditional mix of high quality layouts, trade stands, audio visual presentations, and model engineering demonstrations was given added an impetus by 2018 being the 50th anniversary year of the Society. In particular a number of the layouts, all past and present regulars on the exhibition circuit, were owned by Society members. This extra effort was rewarded by the highest visitor attendance for five years and very favourable customer comments.
The 2019 Exhibition will be held on 27th and 28th April. As more details become available they will be shown on the web page marked 'Exhibition'.

May 2018

In most years we have an evening visit to a local railway venue. Given the special significance of 2018, we had a longer day trip to the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway followed by the Llangollen Railway. On a day of beautiful sunshine and clear skies, we had special trains on each railway and, in a first for the Society, we had photographic run pasts. (Some of the results can be seen in the accompanying slide show). an evening meal on the train at Llangollen completed a memorable spring day out.
