A Beginners Guide to Model Railways

Class 37

In a couple of months' time, I'll be doing something new - running a model railway course for a day. 

The people at Dillington House contacted me about the idea and after a little discussion, we came up with the idea of a simple course for beginners covering some of the basics to help people move on from simply owning a train set, or at least a collection of models. 

In a day, I can't cover a huge amount of ground, but the plan is to build a photo-plank and wire it up. That will cover a bit of scenery, ballasting and some soldering for the hands on elements. I'll talk around some of the other topics while the glue dries. 

The day is aimed at real beginners, so if you or anyone you know fancies it, places are limited and can be booked on the Dillingtom House website
