We are a mixed group of Scalefour Society and EMGS members who meet from 7.30pm on alternate Monday evenings at Winterbourne Gunner camp near Salisbury. We number about 15 members, many of whom belong to both Societies, but at present those who are inclined towards EM outnumber P4 members so we would particularly welcome anyone with an interest in P4 to join us.
Our P4 exhibition layout, Woolworth Road, was awarded a ‘commended’ in the 18.83 Challenge competition but has been undergoing major track modification and improvement for more than three years. These pictures show the layout as it was in 2005 and as it is now in its unfinished state, but without more P4 members the refurbishment will take a great deal longer.
On the other hand the EM members have produced a fine exhibition layout, Navigation Road, from scratch over the last twelve months:
We have a large continuous P4 and EM test track with demanding turnouts in both gauges which we use every third meeting. Our other meetings are taken up alternately with working on the layouts and practical sessions on modelling topics.
Whenever possible we invite visiting speakers and also try and visit nearby groups for operating sessions on their layouts.
Winterbourne Gunner Camp is a military establishment with strict security on entry so new visitors must establish identity. Therefore any prospective member should contact Roger Howden (Phone: 01980 862880 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) so that details can be given before the first visit.
