The Fullers pub, called The Admiral Hawke, also features a toy shop where one of members who sadly passed away in 2016 has been immortalised. Some of the members of the club who are involved in or taken an interested in the project have been or are to be celebrated on the layout somewhere or other. Most importantly, we now have trains running on all four lines! But there is still much work to be done. The layout team need to do a ‘dry run’ of setting up, running, operating and breaking down the layout before it is ready to go on the exhibition circuit. There are too many unknowns and the layout team and other club members need to be fully versed before it goes out to shows. Protective ‘coffins’ also need to be constructed to keep the layout sections safe and secure whilst in storage and in transit. The high street by the station needs to be completed.
30th November 2016 The initial plan of using adapted buildings by American manufacturer Walthers has been abandoned. The cinema has recently been completed and features a detailed and lit foyer. It will certainly be one of the many sights that will draw people’s attention to the layout.
