Special Interest Group - Track Building

Join Ian Allen, John Birch and Paul Stokes, for our next Track Building Special Interest Groups session, where we will take you through building a point, from template to completed item. We will look at the components you would need to purchase, and there are options for some parts, as well as tools and aids to help in the construction of your chosen turnout.

Ian will be building a point, whilst John and Paul will be able to answer your questions during the session. If there is anything specific you would like to know or to be covered as well during the session please let us know, or ask on the day.

Find out more details including the Zoom links to the session on the Special Interest Groups page.

Like other virtual shows that the Gauge O Guild has organised, we will have layouts that have never been seen before as well as some which may be familiar.

You can watch the videos and then speak to some of the layout owners later in the day by Zoom to ask questions.

Demonstrations will include both recorded sessions and live sessions provided by members and our technical committee. 

Special interest groups will be given the opportunity to meet.

You can speak to the Con Reps and other Guild Team members.

Traders will be advertising, product launches are expected and some traders will be available for Q & A sessions.

The modelling competition will again be on line and entry details will be available soon.

The show will be accessible until 30th November 2021.

Gauge O Guild Virtual Show 6th November 2021
An Evening With...

Thomas Hoy and Colin French will be sharing their experience of designing and building small layouts. 

Colin’s layouts range from 25.5 inches long to 4 feet long;  all are pointless. The space that would be taken up by points is used for other features.

Thomas Hoy has a layout 7 feet long designed to entertain him, fit into a space in his bedroom and is easily transportable. Thomas’s layout features a single point, a three way point and a sector plate; a really unusual feature is a DCC operated yard crane. 

Their collective experience and ideas will show that O gauge in a small space really does work.Joining instructions will contain a link to a video to watch before the evening so you can see what they have achieved.

The event is live via Zoom on 26th October 2021 at 20:00 BST.

You must register for this event as places are limited. The event is FREE to members or £2:00 for non-members.
