Oldest building housing a model RR club - 1330 AD
Author: WrongWayMurphy

On a recent visit to the UK, I searched out for a model railroad club to visit, and as we were
staying in Exeter, found a nice bunch of the group called Junction 72A.  They have a facebook page of the
same name and you can see my mug there during the visit.  They have a couple OO layouts and a
couple N scale pikes upstairs in a 1330 built building known as St Katherines Priory - more on that here :

They are a very friendly bunch and were quite happy I came by for the visit.

Pic 1 - OO in the foreground, n scale in the rear

Pic 2 - n scale station scene, on a portable layout they take to shows/events

Pic 3 - n scale canal & lock scene with very realistic canal boat - NICE !

Station scene on the OO layout

Underbelly of the N scale layout - installing switch machines

Another station scene on the OO layout

 Junction 72A is a great bunch, even if they all talk kind of funny.

If I may answer: It's 4mm per foot versus 3.5 per foot for HO. So, it's slightly larger.
