Another busy Saturday at a Norfolk & Suffolk NG Group meeting! 14 members, lots going-on on the work tables, the emergence of two or three Challenge entries, new models on the test track, and three 009 scale layouts displayed, (plus fish ‘n chips!).
A couple of photos are missing as sunlight spoiled the photographs, but here are pictures of most the models on the day:
Moelwyn, Linda, Blanche and Taliesin (amongst others) on Peter’s super Ffestiniog-inspired 009 layout “Maentwrog” being test-run for our forthcoming Open Day Exhibition.
Baldwin “590” attacks the gradient leaving “Maentwrog” with empty slate wagons.
Two animated and LED-lit Challenge entries from Stewart in 2mm scale “The Windmill” and “Tovil Treacle Blenders”.
Stewart was also attending to couplings on his 00n3 6-wheeled Cleminson Southwold Railway coaches.
Barry’s new acquisitions, left: one of two “0e” Fleischmann Magic Train locos, this one a “2265” 0-4-0 tender loco, while behind is a second-hand “00” scale street scene layout. On the right, he has partly made an 0-14 scale KB scale Deutz OMZ117 loco.
This little scene is also a Challenge entry. Martin is constructing this one in Gn15 scale. A telephone engineer will be attending to a telegraph pole while a Ruston diesel rumbles past.
Graham was test-running a new 009 scale layout named “Roxby”. An unusual continuous-run around a scenic hill, it can be viewed from both sides.
Ray’s lovely, now completed, Glyn Valley Tramway type 4-wheeled “0-16.5” coaches.
This superb model will also be a Challenge entry. Alan has scratch-built a Greenhouse in “SM-32” scale on the challenge “footprint”. Details were still being constructed today – finials, a weather vane, and floor tiles.
Phillip’s work table: a Metcalfe Models “00” scale church under construction. Neville: was adding seating material to his “SM45” Timpdon Models 4-compartment Coach. Richard: was building 009 Society RNAD Van kits.
Bill was making fruit boxes in 1:16 scale, but was displaying one of his unique trains on the front of his table.
Graham has now modified his two 3D printed “09” scale steam loco’s with seats on the rear cab sheet and added Stadden pewter seated drivers.
