Inaugural Meeting of the Audlem Historical Modelling Society
The Audlem Historical Modelling Society held its inaugural meeting last week and it was a great success. Six people attended, all of whom were very enthusiastic about the objective of building an accurate scale model of Audlem station as it was in the nineteen fifties or early sixties.
I am pleased to say that we will meet again this Wednesday evening at 7:30 at the Baptist Church on Woore Road when we will be joined by some of the members of Wrenbury Model Railway Club. The club in Wrenbury was formed a few years ago so we will have a great opportunity to ask lots of questions about how to set up a new group and build a first project.
If you are still wondering about joining us or you weren't able to come last week, you will be most welcome on Wednesday.
We have plenty of research to do before we will be ready to start making anything and we would value input from anyone, perhaps especially anyone with memories of Audlem as it was during our period of interest.
Thank you for your support.
