On Tuesday 22nd January 2013 despite the snow and freezing conditions many members of ABC41 Club were made very welcome indeed by the enthusiastic members of Warley Model Railway Club. First we had a fascinating talk about the history of this model train club and heard how it has a strong membership, and how it is responsible for annually taking over one of the massive NEC halls to put on a rally for enthusiasts who come from all around the world. As a hobby it appeals to both world famous stars and both men and boys from all backgrounds alike. We learnt the difference in track guages and how diverse the hobby is. We then were shown some of the superb layouts under contruction, most working before our eyes. It was delightful to see the care taken by club members of the impressive apparatus. Well done Bob for arranging this for us, as always an interesting different inspiring evening. Afterwards we sampled the delights of ales available at the Weatherspoons Pub - Court of Requests, Church St. Oldbury
