Sample Timetable for Murranbilla

Written by David Head. Posted in Murranbilla

Formal timetable nights were often held on the Pine Ridge layout at the old club rooms. To relive this experience, especially for the newcomers, below is a basic timetable which could be tried on Murranbilla when the layout and members have free time.

Members, old and new alike, should not be afraid of a timetable - it is just a sequence of train movements to attempt with time added.

On a run night the time will be paced with a fast clock. Remember if you get behind - we can easily STOP the clock until things are right.
