BANBURY

2012

The Britannia's new  motor enabled it to run very smoothly at slow speeds. 
On the track behind is a custom made LMS six wheeled luggage van. 

Ed Kegge, the TTRCA rep. for The Netherlands, has modified a
standard bakelite curve to match large radius fibre track. 

Top is standard radius, next is the modified bakelite curve, and bottom is large radius.
 

Geoffrey Robinson matched up an old Dinky diecast body with a Trix Express BR80 chassis.

The Trix Express chassis is the plastic 12v DC type.

Geoffrey's "1959" layout featured a humble Trix "Junior" loco from 1955.
Also seen: 5-car Meteor and Warship.

   The Junior loco speeding through the station.

The station span is one of the rare types with wooden end pieces.
The closest track is GEM flexible, which is contemporary with Trix fibre and
connects very easily using Trix Express fibre/plastic converter rails.

Another interesting mix of body and chassis: Hornby plastic
tank loco and Ruston shunter 0-6-0 chassis.

In addition to the usual spare parts, John Hills-Harrop offered a selection of unused plastic loco bodies.
