November 2019 Meeting

It was quite a quiet, relaxing meeting for our November gathering (despite a raging gale outside) and about ten members stayed all day, or popped in for and hour or two. Videos were kindly shown by Richard, and fish & chips appeared at lunch time. Here are some projects that were worked-on or displayed:

Bachmann Spectrum 0n30 0-4-0 Porter loco and tipper wagons displayed by Barry.
Stewart was building trestle supports for a framed operating diorama.
Richard also brought along his 009 “Lester Tin Mine Engine House” shunting layout.
Martin was constructing a Gn15 scale Porter style 0-4-0 loco based on an adapted 00 scale Smokie Joe chassis, it is seen here with the Sand Hutton Parcels/Brake van.
Inspired by Stewart’s “framed dioramas”, Graham is also making a framed 09 module in just 20 inches x 4.5 inches, can it be done? we’ll see. It is made in an old drawer. If successful, other units may follow too.
Chris was making wagon loads using some very detailed Skytrex resin castings.
Dave has improved his Walmington Pier layout by adding an effective photographic back scene and some groynes down on the beach.
