A sort of routine evening – 9 members, plus a return visit from Graham – we obviously failed to scare him off last time when we had no trains running. Also good to see Ian Carter, after missing the last meeting with a Tesco roll induced tummy upset, and Peter after another Cyprus visit.
We soon got the usual circuit up and running, and it was a largely Continental evening. Paul had brought along his Taurus’ and Cargowaggons. Allan and Derek had been to a swapmeet in Selsdon and were testing their purchases. Both Allan and Derek were running some double deck coaches, but Derek’s rake didn’t look quite right with a BR Class 25 (or something) on the front.
Apart from that, there was an exhibition planning session. I need to get the last bits and pieces organised this weekend. And some more publicity around the town, if any shops will take a poster.
PS Farish 4F 0-6-0 just arrived with the postman. Looks very, very, nice. I hoped it would arrive in time for last night’s meeting, so it will have to wait till next time for a test run.
