BANBURY

2013

A rare wooden Terminal Station alongside other early prewar era buildings on Jeff's layout. 

Dave Norville brought along rare locos, and John Hopkinson had his custom repaints on view.

Dave owns this brass prototype of the British 2-4-2 tank loco.
 

The chassis is not from a Trix Express 2-4-2, it is specially made, mainly in brass.

Another of Dave's oddities: a stretched tank loco with a unique AC 0-6-0 chassis.

The underside shows the turned-down centre wheels and extended chassis.

A loco receives attention from Martin Blackwell and John Hills-Harrop,
meanwhile John's lunch is ignored.

Belgian TTRCA member Jean Vens brought along Trix Express and TTR items for sale.
 

Keith Hayman chats to the TTRCA's Overseas Liaison person, David Holmes.
 

Anthony Eastwood is making progress with this NE B1 project,
using a Pytchley body and a Class V chassis.
 

Simon Culverhouse and David Wood take time for a chat.
 

These photos prove that David O'Briens sales table wasn't just for collectors of Trix rarities. There were
cheap and cheerful loco bodies, wagon and coach parts, and controllers in abundance.
 

On John Ridley's sales table, a very nice boxed Trix Constructor set.
The design and production of the first Trix constructor sets predates Trix trains. The name 'TRIX' is derived from the constructor set's metal pieces which have three rows of holes in a pattern of Xs.
Three - X    becomes TRI - X    becomes TRIX.
