ESNG meeting – 18 December 2013

The evening started rather slowly, and the members present were wondering whether we would get a circuit running.  Then Martin (jnr.) arrived – just the man to lift down the corner boards from the cupboard.  So having decided to go for it, we had a circuit up and running in 25 minutes or so.

Allan and Derek (the Atf)  came in a bit late, as Allan had car trouble and Derek collected him from home.  Then of course they just happened to drop into the Selsdon swapmeet.  The Scourge of the Swapmeet (Mr. Atfield) emerged carrying a number of antique locomotive bodies, having beaten the trader down to a reasonable price.

On the circuit, Japanese bullet trains and Allan’s Swiss lorry carrying train were lapping the Santa special – one little steam loco and a coach.  There was added excitement when one of the bullet trains left the rails and indeed the whole layout.  Fortunately, it bounced.

And finally, Duncan lost a buffer…..
