0n30 Tracks & Trestles

Thank you to the members of the Slim Gauge Circle for their hospitality at their 0n30 Timber Trestles modular layout meeting, especially Richard Coney and Terry Rowe for the invitation.

Doodlebug 49┬ámanaged a full circuit of the layout, including the fiddle yard, with it’s new trailer. The journey highlighted the need for the trailing truck on the Doodlebug to be wired in as well, increasing the electrical pickup.

In the meantime, please enjoy of two galleries below, one of the modules assembled and the other of the overall view of the hall and those present. A fantastic day out that was over way to soon.
