The article sent to the railway modeller with the addition of research about Mere's industries Text.

The article about Mere was submitted to Railway Modeller a year ago and since there have been problems with the u-turn board. The u-turn board has been replaced for financial reasons with a straight board  - I had most of the materials in stock. This has changed Mere from a 6 foot by 4' layout to a 12 foot by 1 foot layout.
