Model railway project

A number of pupils have expressed an interest in Model Railways, so Falkland House School has decided to transform the wood store into a Model Railway Room.

This is progressing nicely and the pupils continue to show a strong interest. For example, Cameron has been shown how to plaster and prepare the walls for painting and Ross has helped clean up the window sills. Some of the senior pupils will then paint the room white: this will act as a foundation coat onto which a scene can be painted.

Looking for inspiration, a visit to the Model Railway Exhibition at the SECC in Glasgow was arranged at the end of February.

During a recent meeting, the boys were asked to think about themes they would like to plan the railway around. They were also asked to think about which gauge of train they would like to feature in the project as well as planning the lay out of the track.

We look forward to hearing all their ideas after the April Holidays!
