Layouts Confirmed

Olney Midland - OO gauge - OMRC

This extensive DCC layout is currently under construction and will be exhibited to illustrate the considerable progress that has been made since last year. This is a long term project and with the Club meeting on a one evening a week basis, it is recognised that the project will take a number of years to complete.

The main scenic boards are nearing completion and work on the fiddle yard boards is well advanced. It is anticipated that construction works will be completed during this year, to enable the full layout to be exhibited at our 2018 Exhibition.

The layout features the Model Electronic Railway Group (MERG) CBUS system to achieve point and signal control. This reduces greatly the number of wires going across table joins.
