Tuesday night saw a group of old Melb N Trak club members (well not that old ) head off for a night of running some trains and taking a look at all of the updates that Barry has made to the old Thompson River Canyon Layout. Barry purchased the layout from Vic and myself some years back after Vic and I decided to call it quits on displaying the layout at exhibitions. Whilst we had a lot of great help from many of our mates it was getting harder to arrange the movement and set up.
Barry has been a member of Melb N Trak for some time and once he heard TRC was up for sale I sort of suspect he could not hold back. Barry was still moving into his new home so it was a while before he could get it into his allocated area into a single car garage that is under the house roof line.
It wasn't long before plans were drawn up to allow for as much of the display RR to be used. Barry has done a great job of implementing his new track plan and at the same time keeping some of the much loved portions of the former TRC.
