Lakebank debut success
Lakebank has had it’s first showing at the Exeter MRC exhibition 30th/31st May with great success. We were delighted at the reception from experienced modellers and the general public.
Considering the layout hadn’t been run in ernest before the show it operated extremely well. The main problem was with the couplings which had not been properly set up.. It now needs to be fine tuned and run regularly.
The back scene is a photograph of the Lake District fells much cropped and stretched. It was printed out professionally on a plasticised matt paper and then glued to the back scene with spray mount..
Here are a few more pictures of the layout taken at the show;
