The Addison Road team are working flat out to get the layout ready for its 'official launch' at our Open Day on July 25th - why not come and see it in the flesh!

Well that time has finally arrived - our first proper exhibition, albeit as a 'work in progress'.

We are showing Addison Road at the ALSRM show in Reading this coming Saturday May 7th.

Please come and say 'HELLO' ..... in fact please come and say more than just 'hello' ! We will be pleased to show you all our latest work and maybe try to recruit you to our team. Don't worry if you live a distance from our clubrooms as one of our members lives in Chicago,USA!

Here are a few completely random photos taken since my last posting.

BTW you can see the layout in the flesh at Alexandra Palace on March 24th/25th - please come and say hello.

But do you know the real life story behind the elephant and the pram?

There really was a real life elephant on that platform with a child in a pram and we have a photo to prove it, but in truth it was in 1953 not the 1920's - so we claim modellers' licence with that.

So can you guess why it was there?
