Adur Council Chairman to be the next Rod Stewart?
Chairman of Adur Council, Councillor Brenda Collard, and her partner, Mr Derek Parker will be opening South Shore Model Railroad Club's third annual show at Boundstone Community College at 10 a.m. on Saturday 8th December 2007.
The show features model layouts representing different aspects of American and Canadian Railroading, in several different scales. Confirmed layouts include Romulus AB, a HO layout based upon a prairie town in Alberta, Canada; Azusa Mill N gauge downtown LA switching layout; Broke Brick Mountain G scale narrow gauge; Lynneton Yard, a HO 'switching puzzle' to test your powers of logic; as well as 2 visiting layouts - Gosport's HO Newton Junction Kansas; and Wittering's On30 Canadian narrow Gauge Osbourne's Lake.
Also in attendance will be the President of the British Section of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA), Tim Rudge, Atlantic Director of the NMRA, Nobby Clarke and editor of the NMRA's UK magazine 'Roundhouse' Martin Boysack. Such is their confidence in the South Shore Model Railroad Club that they have asked the club to present the 2010 annual Spring Meet of the NMRA.
South Shore Model Railroad Club was formed in 2003 for the purpose of exchanging information, ideas and improving knowledge and skills for it's various members. The club meets from 7 to 10 most Wednesdays at the Labour Hall, Lyndhurst Hall. Worthing, when the hall is available.
South Shore Chairman, Nick Whitmarsh-Everiss said, "Model Railroading requires a number of skills, from carpentry to engineering, artistic painting, model making, electrics and state of the art electronics. As such it appeals to people from all walks of life, even musical giants such as Rod Stewart, Jools Holland and Pete Waterman. Our exhibition is to show people just what is possible and encourage them to try it for themselves. We are pleased that the Chairman of the Council has agreed to open our show"
What has this got to do with rock singer Rod Stewart? He has been a model railroader for many years and his personal layout is featured on the front cover of the December issue of Model Railroader magazine.
It is expected that the Chairman of the Council will be invited to 'drive' one or more of the model trains during her visit. Will she get the bug and become the next Rod Stewart? Who knows?
