Warwick Mill
A new N gauge model is now under construction. it is going to be the replacement for "Triptan Fell" which has been sold after having attended several exhibitions.
This layout was originaly called "Pilsworth" as our club premises were at Heywood Distribution Park which was accessed via Pilsworth Road.
However we were forced to vacate that property when our landlord there went into receivership and we have set up a new club room at Warwick Mill in Middleton.
Hence the change of name for the model which we hope will be a bit longer lasting than the original.!!

The model is progressing well and some of the latest pictures taken at our "Open Day" on October 13th 2012 are below.

The extreme left hand end of the layout showing the tunnels into the rear fiddle yard, the coaling stage and part of the mill which gives the layout its name.
Still at the left hand end of the layout but now looking towards the station over bridge. Again the coaling stage and the mill are dominant features at this end.
