  1. Have to be honest and say the Wrenbury Model Railway open doors event was a disappointment. Popped along on the Friday evening and not one member from the club bothered to speak or even say hello.

    And a bit of friendly advice… try opening a window, maybe have an air freshner, or use a little polite discretion within your club as its not pleasant to walk into the Hall and smell pee and stale body odour.
