30th de Septiembre - Cuban Sugar Mill

Built by the 32C group is this HO gauge Cuban layout!  The layout made its first appearance at our own Southwold MRE 2006.  The layout runs passenger and freight trains, much of the traffic being generated by the featured sugar mill.
One of the group members has been to Cuba (more than once!) and has carried out some first hand research!

GRANDADS’ TRAINS
0 Gauge
This is a very popular and nostalgic layout with lots of movement. The layout is the result of collecting tinplate trains, mainly Hornby & Bassett Lowke, over a considerable number of years. Some stock dates from the 1920’s to modern issue Corgi (Bassett Lowke) as well as Ace trains.   The layout has three continuous 3-rail tracks, built from brass track, with cast chairs and wooden sleepers, with passing loops, enhanced with a good selection of mainly Hornby tinplate buildings and other lineside items.      Size 20’ X  9’

Ringsford - Scale 1:76.2, 4mm/ft;  Gauge 00, 16.5 mm; DC Analogue Control
This layout represents a secondary main line and may be exhibited, with suitable changes of railway company buildings etc. as either Great Eastern division of BR(E) or Southern Region.  In either case the period represented is the 1950s to ‘60s - the steam to diesel transition period.  The layout consists of a scenic front section which includes a double track main line, passing/holding loop to the front and goods yard to the rear, the tracks running around to the rear “fiddle yard”.  The goods yard includes typical features such as an end loading and cattle docks, goods shed, coal yard etc.  A further feature is a siding and (interchangeable) Oil or Milk depot.  Scenically the railway environs are essentially rural with a road overbridge, an orchard and farm buildings at one end, leading to a river crossed by rail and road bridges. A road passes over a level crossing, featuring platform end ramps and footbridge, and leads to the urban area, which includes the station hotel and three small shops, a pair of cottages, a riverside pub and quayside buildings.
First outing for Ringsford (unfinished) was to Norwich Model Railway Club’s exhibition on 2nd April 2016 at Hellesdon High School, where it was well received by visitors and organisers alike.
