Scaleforum 2019

Postby Terry Bendall » Mon Jun 04, 2018 8:18 pm

I posted this information a couple of weeks ago under the News 207 thread but some may have missed that. So due notice is given that Scaleforum 2019 will take place on September 28th/29th 2019 at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Aylesbury. Boom the date in your diary now! :D

I have, also, put the date in my diary.

I'm just hoping that it's not the last ever Scaleforum!

With Scalefour North out of the way it is time to give an update on Scaleforum 2019 which takes place on September 28th/29th at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Aylesbury

Given the comments in another part of the forum, we are pleased to announce that two track building workshops will feature as part of this year's show. Track gurus Tony Wilkins and Howard Bolton have agreed to provide practical workshops on the making of the two key parts of a turnout, the common crossing and the switch blades. These will be run twice on each day and places, which will be limited, will need to be booked in advance. Those attending will also need to bring along a few simple tools. Details of how to book and what will be needed will be posted in due course. This will be a unique opportunity to learn from two of the experts in the field.

Layouts that will be on display are as follows:

Burntisland 1883
Clackmannan Goods
Glenmutchkin
London Road
Ouse Valley Viaduct & Balcombe Station
P76 Engineering - Sentinel Street
Pulborough
Splott
Waterloo Street

Special guest layout Shelfie 2

Demonstrations will include:

Loco and chassis construction - Will Litchfield
Laser cut building construction including Building Alpha Mill - Ralph Robertson. Alpha Mill itself will be on display
Making use of older RTR models - Jim Smith Wright
Modelling air braked wagons - Phil Eames
Resistance soldering workbench - David Brandreth
Getting started in P4 - Gavin Clark
Coach Construction - Keith Bradbury

Traders will include:

Alan Gibson (Workshop)
Ambis Engineering
Attwood Aggregates
Bill Hudson Transport Books
Branchlines
Brassmasters Scale Models
C&L Finescale Trackbuilding Systems
Dart Castings
Dave Bradwell
Eileen's Emporium

Dear Terry,

what tools would one need to bring if signing up for the track building seminars? It has an implication as to whether hold luggage is booked or not.

regards

Thanks Terry (not to mention Tony & Howard for volunteering to do them!) - these sound excellent. I understand the principles for both, but the theory of how doesn't cover the easy pitfalls and how to avoid them etc. I look forward to hearing more about how to sign up for these when the time comes.

It is worth noting that Glenmutchkin will be attending strictly in the category of "under construction."

Anyone who expect to see an even vaguely completed layout will be suffering a disappointment but it and its fairly numerous signals will operational with mostly correct stock - although whether I get the bl**dy turntable to work reliably remains to be seen!

I'll even get around to posting some progress reports here soon but if you can't wait for this, you will find out what I am up to on https://highlandmiscellany.com/

Not a lot and certainly no lathes, milling machines or laser cutters. :) The exact details to be confirmed, but probably a small clamp on vice, a few files and a soldering iron. Not much else but all will be revealed in due course.

All the Best

I thought that a bus service was not going to be offered this year owing to losses in previous years?

That is correct for Scaleforum. As Danny has said, if this enquiry relates to RailEx, that is nothing to do with the Scalefour Society. :)

Sorry Keith,

I must have accidentally clicked on the wrong thread, I meant to have asked David on his thread.
