Clydeside Model Rail Club

Model Railway Club in Scotland


Friday 17th started the evening with this years Clydeside AGM. This allowed the committee to update our club members on how we have done this year as well as discuss a range of topics from the tea fund to the shows we attend. Overall its been a good year for the club and plans to refurbish our Wynder layout, complete Bains Reach, and consider plans for a larger layout. The year ahead looks very good!

As part of this we also take time to recognise the hard work of some of our club members including the presentation of the Chairmans cup. While our chairman was absent from the meeting he left firm instructions that it was this year to be presented to our our secretary Neil. This was in recognition of the hard work he puts in between the Cathcart and Model Rail Scotland shows, as well as ensuring the club runs smoothly. A much deserved award and the trophy was presented by Cameron who was standing in for our chairman on the night.

If you wish to help us with our upcoming year feel free to get in touch and arrange a visit to our clubrooms.

Ferness  through the modern ages?

Once again we’re back in the little Station of Ferness this time possibly in the modern day or at least closer to it.

This saw a new Class 68 parked in the platform next to a class 170 thats been skipping the paint shop for some time, apparently the local fitters refuse to send it down to have a new livery applied as it runs perfectly. The 68 left Ferness with a rake of Mk2’s on a long journey back to Glasgow which I managed to get onboard just in time. This concludes “Ferness through the ages” and in our next update we should have some more locations from the clubroom.
