ESNG meeting – 16 September 2015

After the excitement of TINGS, it was back to the usual club night.  8 members were present and occasionally correct.  Whilst Bruno raced his 0-6-0 tank against Graham and Paul’s bullet trains, Allan, Duncan and I talked over wiring the end loop and plans for Stuttgart.  Mid-November will come all too quickly.  At least for Duncan, who has to solder up another 1,000 pine trees from wire.

Altogether a pleasant evening, and we packed up at 9:30 as Allan is up at 2:30am for the school milk round.


UPDATE.  Paul sent me this photo of his two bullet trains and Graham’s canary.

One purchase from TINGS I didn’t mention was a number of packs of etched container shackles and chain from N-Brass.  I have a train of Conflats waiting for this finishing touch.  A search on RMweb and Google came up with the following photos of model and real thing.  The fixings look consistent enough.  I did note that it was best to have only one small container on a wagon – two containers had to be roped together, then shackled from the ends.  This may be just two difficult for me in N gauge….
