ESNG meeting – PlayDay 10 January 2016

Another successful afternoon playing trains, with a reasonable turnout of 8 members.  The usual suspects were, of course, in evidence….

I brought along my 1960’s container train to run.  I still need to add all the chains and shackles to hold the containers in place, (plus a little glue – I have bought the N-brass etchings to do this), but it still looks a good train.  The Dapol Class 73 and Hymek both had a run out on the train and both looked the part.

Later on, somehow one of Paul’s JNR locos got on the front of the BR train…..

I also managed to give my blue and grey Brighton Belle a run.  It runs well and is a most attractive model.  I almost wished I had bought a second on to give a full 10-BEL London to Brighton unit.

There was the usual variety of trains on show, from the UK, Switzerland, America and Japan.  Dave’s ‘Sharknose’ diesels made an attempt to rival Paul’s long trains, but Bachmann coaches are not as free rolling as Japanese goods stock….

Miles must get a mention for bringing along another sticky cake.  And the evening finished with the inevitable curry!
