ESNG meeting – 17 August 2016

A quiet evening, with just the eight of us attending.  Even the treasurer was on holiday!

No Japanese trains today, as Paul also seemed to be away.  Simon was running this lovely Santa Fe Alco PA-PB-PA set.  It must have been straight out of the shops, as the fabled Alco exhaust soon turned the roof, and side grills, black.  No concern about diesel particulates in the 1950’s and 60’s.

Otherwise, it was Southern night.  Derek’s M& performed well, pulling as many as three Maunsell coaches.

And it was also School’s class running in night, with the new Dapol models in BR green and BR black represented.  Both seemed to run very well out of the box – especially after Derek removed the small piece of packing between loco and tender that stopped it going around corners.  Not mentioned in the instructions, but N Gauge Forum brought our attention to it!

There were also conversations about forthcoming shows – Gaugemaster at the beginning of September, Stuttgart in November, and our own show in April 2017.  I sent a few emails out over the weekend, and it seems to be coming together!
