Club News: 


The club regrets to announce the death of Allan Hannington, one of its longest serving members.

Allan served the club in many positions as Committee Member, Chairman and Exhibition Manager and latterly as a Director of the Limited Company. In addition to these formal positions, Allan’s training as a draughtsman was put to good use in the Club where he was responsible for producing the hall plans for the annual Exhibition but he also produced layout plans and a detailed plan of the clubrooms. 

Allan modelled in OO and was an active member of the club’s fine-scale OO group, exhibiting many times most recently with the “Stratford Road” layout.

He was one of the regular speakers at the CMRA's Modellers day event.  Due to the numbers of questions asked, his talk on civil engineering never reached its conclusion.  Allan also acted as Chief Steward at the CMRA January show and was for a number of years the Club’s representative to the CMRA.

The club offers their condolences to his wife Lynden and his daughter Katy.

The funeral took place on Thursday 10th January at the Colchester Crematorium.

Paul Evans (Director)


Now on to railway matters.

2019/03 Hills Country has now moved to North East Scotland.

2019/02Two groups in the  club have started on new N Gauge layouts.  One group is doing a modular layout with no fixed time period or location.  The other group are doing a UK outline layout.

So if you want to get in on the start of new layouts come and join us on Thursday evenings.
