Our Open Day is an opportunity for visitors to see work in progress on layouts, perhaps with one or more layouts being operated. You can chat with Club members and find out what you want to know in as much depth as you would like. Learn about all the mistakes we have made, so that you don’t do the same. Get the benefit of all our experience.
