July 2019 Meeting

We held an all-day meeting in Barsham on 6th July.  Members could bring a layout, work on models, watch the videos or just generally join-in the chat.  Here are a few photos of the models on the day:

Jim brought his 009 layout "Old Chapel Yard".  He has been adding new stock including these two wagons and vans, which have been detailed, lettered and weathered nicely.

Martin's Gn15 layout "Longstone Park" now has added improvements including ground foliage and an enhanced shed roof, using inks, paint, and Tipp-Ex which will represent lichen spots when finished.

He is also building a model of the baby Deltic inspired by the loco from the Markeaton Miniature Railway.

Three photos of Richard's"Thurtey" (009).  This unique layout is now being regularly exhibited and he has been preparing new stock and locos especially to run on it.  Here, a Narrow Planet Motorail diesel is seen on the middle jetty.  

A Minitrains Bohler Barclay conversion runs-up to the water tank.

Also, a new addition is this modifed and re-painted Bachmann "Rusty" (58603) seen on the turning triangle. 

Graham brought along this new 009 permanent way train. A repainted second hand diesel tractor, a Meridian Stone Wagon, part of an old pw bogie wagon on an Egger tender chassis, a Roco 34620 Gondola Bogie Wagon and a modified Dundas coach make up the train. 

Graham has also been tempted by a new scale to him - "09".  He has just started by building a few Unit Models resin kits.  Their freelance diesel loco and two open wagons are shown here, as yet unfinished.

Stewart was working on one or two different things today.  He painted some gulls by Langley Models, finished very nicely to show immature and adult herring gulls, and a black-headed.

He also made a non-working N scale narrow gauge wagon turntable using Z gauge track.

Mike had started to construct a Coopercraft Bedford ML Dropside Lorry.

Alan is continuing to build stock for his 7mm narrow gauge layout.  This will be an Ice Wagon for use on the fish quay scene.

Bill was cutting track sleepers for his 1:16 layout, and also scratch building another oil can, seen here with earlier examples.

Fruit boxes too are part of Bill's repertoire.
