Model Rail

Belated news that the members visited Model Rail Scotland 2009 in the middle of February. The SECC was positively crawling with priests - at least six (that's six times the Diocese of Moosonee in Canada's diocesan priests!) of us were there looking at a wonderful selection of model railway layouts. The ingenuity and technical abilities of those involved always surprise and delight the audience, how can they re-create in miniature such realistic panoramas? One comes away inspired to take up railway modelling once more, unfortunately then one sees the prices on the models. They've got a bit dearer than they were when we went to seminary! It seems that even a moderate layout would cost nigh on £1000 and could get much much dearer. Unfortunately we just can't afford it.
