Freemo web forum

Just a quick post to let you all know that with several groups now working in similar modular ways we’ve set up a forum for exchange of information and to share what we’re all doing – if you’re interested go to http://ukfreemo.forumup.co.uk/index.php and register, we look forward to seeing you there!


Exeter 2012

Just a few days now until our next outing at the Exeter show this weekend – see http://www.exemrs.co.uk/Exhibition.html for show details.

This will be another large showing with RS Tower keeping a busy train service running and circa 150′ modules added giving branchlines for operations.

A change from last year is a move from car cards and waybills to switchlists (created from JMRI ops) to drive the operations.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
