NEIL WALKER

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.

 A photogrqaph of Neil talking to Club members Neil joined 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 double line 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 future.
