Last updated September 2016 We had a very enjoyable day at the Haywards Heath 175 model railway exhibition, and as a result have received invitations to a further six shows in the south-east, dates to be decided. Our next show is Newcastle in November, which gives a few weeks for some minor improvements to the layout, and a little touching up here and there. Lots of progress was made earlier in the year, described here, and more recent progress here. I’ve also been refurbishing/repairing/servicing/completing various locos, with the intention of having a fully functional loco roster for the next show, described in a bit more detail here. In addition to working on Plumpton Green, we have started work on renovating Pulborough, for a possible outing at the Bluebell MRS in 2017 - but very dependent on what we find when we start to see what needs to be done. Progress looks good so far. I’m aware that the photo galleries on this site which used Flash Player didn’t work on Android devices, so I’ve reverted to ordinary text pages with hyperlinks to photos - much easier to edit and provide captions, apart from anything else. All have now been converted. The Brighton Circle e-group has recently started producing a twice-yearly digital ‘Modellers’ Digest’ which contains articles of particular interest to modellers of the LBSC of all scales and eras, and potentially other pre-group modellers. The latest edition of the Digest can be found here.
This website contains details of my current layout ‘Plumpton Green’ together with the Mid-Sussex Group’s layouts, plus photos and descriptions of various techniques I have used over the years. The layouts and models here are all built to Protofour standards (4mm:ft). Pulborough and Plumpton Green are both available for exhibition. All of the photos and drawings should open a larger version in a new window if you click on them. I hope you enjoy the site, and find it useful. If you wish to use any of the site content, please ask. If you would like to contact me, please email. Barry Luck
