    Little things mean a lot”
    With Dave Hawkins
    It is often said that it should be possible to tell the time and place of a model railway without there being any locomotives or rolling stock on the layout, merely by observing the buildings, signals, and other railway infrastructure. Dave believes that we should also be able to do this by observing things beyond the railway fence, especially the small details. The talk will look at ways in which this can be achieved by regarding such items as models in their own right rather than mere scenic accessories. It will cover, among other things: research, construction, artwork, painting and weathering..
    At the end of the evening you are invited to join us at "The Station" pub next to Bitterne station.
