I believe there were 14 members at our September meeting, and also we counted 14 different scales (most, but not all were narrow gauge) displayed in all sorts of ways: projects, new models, trackwork, part-built layouts, historic models, new acquisitions, electronic experiments, and scratch builds. Here are some photos:-
“Valerie” and “Nigel” from the late Ron Billington’s “Trenwheal Valley Railway” (O-16.5) proudly displayed by George Billington. They have scratch built chassis, and are shown along with other scratch built TVR stock.
George Billington’s recent 009 stock including a scratch built “Dolgoch” and a converted Lima diesel.
Bill continues to scratch build in1:16 scale, and today he was making this Barrow Wagon running on OO track, for a proposed layout.
Richard was displaying two recent acquisitions in HOn3, they are two American FED (ready made) kits from the 1970’s, a 4-4-0 and 2-6-0 tender locomotives, he is going to restore them for a proposed layout.
Graham was test running his new O9 “table-top” layout named “Pye Rigg Works”, which will represent a small running shed works near a farm in North Yorkshire. He has just completed the bridge .
Tony brought in this 009 layout with an interesting track plan which needs restoring, and was working on the electrics.
Dave brought along his modern street operation diorama using Bachmann trams. “All Cars Stop Here” (HO scale).
This is a photo of some small HOe homemade 3D printed bodies mounted on Tsugawa Yokou Mini size chassis displayed by David. He was also experimenting with motorised turntable, and traverser units for a special coffee table layout.
More 3D printed models in the form of 009 scale 4-wheeled coaches mounted on N gauge chassis displayed by John. The left- hand workmen’s coach is by Dundas Models.
Alan’s 16mm scratch built models. The armoured Simplex is now painted and finished and displayed on a small WW1 diorama, and the fictitious Generals war loco is having a tool box tender made for it.
Jim’s latest 009 3D printed locomotives.
Ray’s 009 Heljan (9984) “Lyn” 2-4-2 locomotive.
