Visit to Wimborne Railway Society

Nine members spent a pleasant afternoon and evening visiting the Wimborne Railway Society today.

The WRS will be exhibiting at our own Fordingbridge Model Railway Exhibition in April, so this was an opportunity to meet up with members of the Society and get an idea of what they do.  We were made very welcome by Gordon Edgar and the other enthusiastic members who patiently explained their OO gauge layout and showed us how it worked.

We all had lots of chances to drive engines, solve puzzles in the shunting yards, and cause havoc by trying to run the signal box, before sharing a fish-and-chip supper.
