It is with a heartfelt disappointment that I bring the news from my local
news paper that the Elizabethan Model Railway society suffered two fires at
the weekend to their 1969 built wooden clubhouse in Sutton in Ashfield,
which has resulted in the building being gutted. I personally do not know
the full extent of the damage, I hope to contact some members in the next
few days to see how I can help, but it is thought that some if not all of
the layouts (ranging from N gauge to O gauge) have been lost along with
years of other work and a library of reference books.
This follows on after only one month before teenage vandals managed to
destroy the St Johns building next-door in a similar manner.
The society however are determined to push ahead and continue with there
exhibition in October, of which, I wish them the best of luck !
