A TRULY AMAZING CLUB MEMBER
The late Neil Walker with his wife Sandy, at their residence in November 2010
In February 2011
Neil Walker passed away after losing his third bout
with cancer. Neil was a valued member to the DECCA Club, making many
notable contributions within the Club.
the DECCA Club in 2006
and became a very active member within the Club, in particular, in the
building and construction of the Club's second DCC exhibition layout, to which Neil played
a significant part in the construction thereof. Before long, Neil was
elected onto the
Committee and he continued to make further contribution to the running of the Club. He also
made himself available to help in the transportation of the Club layout,
also setting up and running the Club layout in many of the
exhibition displays at the local model railway shows.
Neil, with the
help of his son Ben, built their own layout consisting of a
circle of tracks plus a small yard with sidings, which was set up in
Neil's car port at his home. This layout was operational when Neil and
Sandy hosted a DECCA Club meeting at their home in November 2010. Sadly,
Neil was unable to make any further progress with this layout, but it
is hoped that his son Ben will continue to work on the layout. The
following photographs were taken of their layout as it stands, giving
Ben the foundation for making further expansions to the layout in the
