I believe I counted sixteen members attending on 4th January, quite a good turn-out. Many people were working on models, – wagons, coaches, buildings, details and layouts. We also had a fish and chip lunch and watched a couple of videos. Here are some photos:
OUR NEXT MEETING: Saturday 1st February, 10am to 4pm.
Rays superb 0-16.5 Smallbrook Studio “Echo” kit with added bunker running on an Electrotren chassis and with Preiser crew.
Richard is building a 009 scale micro layout on two Norfolk Heath modules. Inspired by the Pyke’s Sugar Beet railway, Claxton, Norfolk. the layout incorporates a high level tramway bringing in beets from the fields and tipplers to the main line wagons in the yard below and fed by a sector plate.
Chris was building some more (scratch built) 09 scale wagons, the glue is only just dry on the slatted wagon. The gold bells are a seasonal load!
Two photos of “Longstone Park” (Gn15). The beer bottles, crates and barrels have just been made.
Barry was displaying a large collection of 0-14 KB Scale and Roy Link kits, a Ruston Hornsby LBT and a Lister loco are shown in the first picture.
Graham has finished his first 09 scale “module in a drawer” (as yet unnamed) and was test-running it and tweaking couplings. Here steam loco “Drake” is hauling a single short bogie coach, also recently completed.
Stewart has completed two more micro scenes in frames, one a trestle bridge amongst rocks, the other a Christmas scene with revolving train set and tree lights.
Dave brought his New Walmington Pier layout. This is the busy Victorian scene at the end of the pier.
