Nr. Ashford, Kent. England.
I went to the new fixed venue of the E Sussex group on Saturday. They used to have fairly regular running days in village halls but have been lucky enough to have been given free use of an old farm building. Construction is still ongoing but the track is down and running.
Three circuits and a shuttle-
1 is DCC using MTS3 and radio receivers for both LGB and Massoth controllers (so high address numbers are handled).
2 is for analoge and battery
3 is for live steam and battery.
4 is a tram shuttle along one wall at a higher level.

The scenery is being developed but a good start has already been made. Running was reliable and trouble free.
In another part of the building is the tea room and two more layouts (G and OO) which I think belong to the property owners.

All in all, a good day at a nice venue. Easy, free parking too-
If your interested I suggest you join the G Scale Society.

The steam up bay - with fire extinguisher!

Low relief buildings at rear, Storage sidings to the left. Steam up area to the right. The glass roof has been lined with bubble wrap and it does seem to work pretty well at moderating the heat in the room - how long it might last is any ones guess. Loads of room to develop the scenery.

Looks brilliant. I came out of the Society because there was nothing for West Yorkshire area. Wish we had something up here.
