With the evenings still long and dark, members up and down the land are focussed on the 2017 Model of the Year competition. At least, that’s our hope! Now is the time to get working on your entries. A new category this year will be an award for the best module, or set of modules, forming part of the Modular Layout. Gareth “Modular” Jones is kindly donating a cup.

One of the joys (and challenges) of running MOTY is not knowing until the day of the show quite what will appear. This time last year I mentioned that we had been quite thin on entries for the Junior Cup and the rolling stock classes in 2015 – and you duly came up trumps with many more entries in those classes last year. Thank you! We also had a pleasing start to the reintroduced Peter Jones class.

At the same time, in 2016 we were a bit low on entries in the steam loco classes (Allcomers, Jack Wheldon and Roundhouse), and also for the Gordon Diplock trophy. I’m looking forward to seeing what you bring to enter in MOTY 2017!
