Already exhibited at the North Down and Wexford model railway shows this year, Belle Eclaire has drawn quite a bit of attention from the visiting public. This new layout from the club is a digitally operated (DCC) HO scale French rural station. It features various types of French (SNCF) rolling stock with realistic sounds including their distinctive two tone horns.
The SNCF stock includes a two car EAD Caravelle and some classic autocars (railcars).
Among other items shown on the layout were an operating track tamping machine, a Robel track maintenance machine with operating crane and an operating heavy duty crane.
