There is a wide spectrum of interests, not all confined to 3mm.
Projects range from 12mm gauge through to 14.2mm with original Tri-ang represented as well. Micro layouts, including one in a shoe box, is one members passion whilst another models in Irish narrow gauge, in 3mm Scale on 9mm track. Because of this we have our own dual gauge test track of soldered point and 3mm Society track bases construction.This was assembled at a couple of our meetings.
Several layouts are available for exhibition for which help is needed and is always forthcoming, understanding wives are also helpful! We have several Exhibitions booked which are updated on the blog.
The formal part of the group broadly follows the rules laid out by the 3mm Society and at AGM's our voices are usually heard. We are bound by the restrictions placed on all members and by recent discussions feel it is not in members best interests to allow non-members access to Society shops to benefit from the imput of those whose subscriptions have enabled a wide range of items to be available. This I feel is not unreasonable bearing in mind that a years subscription is less than 4 gallons of petrol or a short evening at the pub.
So- is our group tied up with rules etc.? We have an Organiser (Me, who tries to arrange monthly meetings and visits), a Secretary (He's the one who can write) and a Treasurer (He's the one who works in a bank). We have no further rules or small print to restrict proceedings, just to enjoy a few hours a month in each others company and maybe a pint afterwards. Did I say no rules? Just one-
Bring a mug!
