Sarre Layout Progress

Not much to report on Sarre.

It enjoyed good use on 20th April with a number of branch and industrial locos and trains being run.

The highlight was the early KESR train that Ross brought along from the Tenterden Museum.

One of the points played up again but David Ho will sort this.

Scenically, we need to get more static grass down and I think we should find a couple of hikers looking at a map for the left hand end of the layout.

The location forĀ a Camping Coach was agreed at the end of the long siding opposite the factory building.
This still leaves plenty of space for the workman’s train that rests during the running sessions.

As John B provides much of the rolling stock for Sarre and he uses Dingham couplings (and I’ve started to fit my stock with them, too), we need to consider where to put the magnets and then source some.

Dingham’s can work with three-link couplings as well so there is still plenty of opportunity for other members to provide stock for our running days and exhibitions.
