Return of the Dock

Sandwich man with ring

The reason we were in the storage container yesterday is that it's time to unearth Melbridge Dock for testing as the layout is due to appear at the Leamington & Warwick MRS exhibition next weekend.

The club is celebrating it's 40th exhibition and the Dock will be marking it's quarter century since first appearing at the Town & Country Festival back in 1990. This is one old layout. A well travelled one too - at best guess the number of shows attended is around 100. Far too many for our badge board for a start!

I can't remember the last time we took the layout out  on the road but it's at least 3 years ago. Since then it's been stored in an unheated ISO shipping container. We do wrap the model up in plastic and an insulated bag bought from a furniture storage supplier.

Will it work? Watch this space for updates.
