Although the current incarnation of the North American section dates from 1998 when the core of the
group re-joined the club, the section was originally formed around 30 years earlier when
Alan Waredraper (father of the current section head) first moved to the area and joined
the I & WEMRC.
Exhibition visitors of the 70's and early 80's still remember and talk about East Falls, which
started as a relatively small layout (18' x 5') built in Alan's conservatory, then grew into a
bigger 'L' shape, and then was squared off again at approx 25' x 25'.
Although the section models mainly in HO gauge (3.5mm scale), the section had brief period in the
late 70's where the main layout was in N gauge.
Various of the section members have projects underway at home, including a parmanent On30 narrow gauge layout,
a box-room sized HO gauge layout, and an automated G-scale exhibition layout.
