    Hi Toto,
    Thank you ever so much, we are doing our best down here, as we have only been members of the 16mm association for e years and my partner has taken over as area co - ordinater now and is Chair of our local group.We have a small committee of 3 people consisting of Chair Secretary and Treasurer, I have been nominated as Secretary. So a lot of writing emails and stuff.As I mentioned to York Paul is lovely to give something back to the village as we have only lived here 9 years and the village school is only a stone throw from where we live.
    Regards,
    Gloria.

    Hi everyone,
    Am posting a list of rallies and shows that we have been invited too this year, if any members of Platform1mrc are on holiday in Cornwall and are visiting any of these shows please pop along and say hello. 26th and 27th May Helston Railway 1940s week-end, 5th and 6th July Padstow Steam Rally in model tent, 4th of August is our own local Vintage Rally which is held at Grade Ruan Minor on the Lizard Peninsula outside of small model tent where we have been in attendance for 3 years inc this year, 10 and 11th August is Carnell Green Show, 16th 17th 18th West of England Steam Rally in model tent, 14th and 15th September Helston Railway Heritage Transport Week - End, 26th October Exeter Garden Railway Show, 27th October Cornwall 0 Guage Show held at Carn Brea Leisure Centre. There is a possibility but not sure as yet as we have to put this to our members that we could be in attendance at East Looe Rally or Show, further details at a later date as this could be 27th and 28th July.
    Regards,
    Gloria (Secretary of Cornwall Group16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers)

    Hi everyone,
    A further update of our portable garden railway, I have posted some details of shows we are attending this year and a photo of our portable railway which is not quite complete as its only the tables that have been built by my partner. More to follow at a later stage.
    Regards,
    Gloria.

    Hi everyone,
    Just started a new build for our garden railway exhibit show, a station platform made from odd pieces of scrap stripped wood with a basal wood platform not quite finished as yet, a water crane made from an empty bisto gravy tin a straw. That is also not finished as it needs a further coat of paint plus a base.
    Regards,
    Gloria.

    Looks like a good size set of base boards.
    What’s the plan for the railway, test track style, proper model railway wiith scenic’s or just basic placed buildings and station etc??

    Hi SMR Chris,
    It's a proper exhibition railway which we are taking to shows throughout Cornwall possibly beyond as we are booked in at Exeter Garden Railway Show in October. Also hoping to take it to the National Garden Railway Show in Peterborough next year. Yes there are buildings platforms which our group members are building.
    Regards,
    Gloria
