Junior Members Section

Introduction

Weymouth Model Railway Association has a small but thriving Junior Members Section and welcomes new members provided they are accompanied by a responsible adult. Each Monday evening that the Association meets the OO gauge test track is assembled with four running tracks for junior members to run their trains on. This is illustrated below:

Junior Members 2014 Modelling Competition

Recently junior members Benjamin, Chris, Hayden and Oliver tackled the art of creating their own locomotive display scenic dioramas at the Association’s weekly meetings under the guidance of Association senior members. Each junior’s entry was judged by the Association’s Chairman and Treasurer who decided that the high standards achieved warranted each junior member receiving the same award which they duly presented to the junior members.
