ESNG meeting – 2 October 2014

It was a quiet club night tonight.  A few of us sat around wondering whether or not to set up a circuit, but when Ted brought along a friend with a locomotive to test, we thought we had better do something.  So we got a small modular layout up an running, and there were enough people to keep a the trainspotters happy.

As ever, Derek (Atfield) came up with the novelty item – the first Victorian Royal Train (sort of), hauled by a Brighton Terrier with a couple of 4-wheeled coaches, a flat truck with a state carriage on board, and a horse-box.


It’s also worth mentioning that this post represents about a year of this blog.  When I started it whilst recovering from appendicitis, I didn’t really think that I’d still be writing a year on.  But I’ve had nearly 4000 views of 180 posts from nearly 50 countries.  It’s been fun to do, and I hope you, gentle readers, have enjoyed it as well.

I’ll carry on with the usual mix – tales from ESNG, my attempts to build a layout, interesting links from the news and to other blogs, and a few of my old railway photographs.  I do hope to publish some more traction ideas in the months ahead, as this does seem to be the best read topic on the blog.
