April 2022 Meeting

We met on April 2nd and our meeting took the usual format. Work tables, layouts and visitor members popping in. But after lunch we did have a group discussion to decide on future shows (open day exhibitions), as several outside factors have affected our preferred, proposed dates and format making things difficult to arrange.

Anyway, here are some photos of a few attending models and projects:-

Richard brought along his wartime period layout “Shipmeadow” to test prior to a public display. Hauling Beccles & Bungay Railway four-wheelers is Ray’s new Kato/PECO Small England “Prince” loco (Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway).
Ray also displayed two more great buildings for his 009 layout. Wills Station Forecourt Shop Fronts have been cleverly used to create the low-relief building on the left, while the he used just a few Wills spares to create this Georgian style house on the right.
Chris brought along his new O9 layout project “Ingoldsby Yard” a self-contained standard inglenook sidings shunting puzzle.

Geoff’s radio controlled Fletcher Jennings “Townsend Hook” inspired 0-4-0 loco and goods wagons.

Jim bought along this Heljan 9963 Southern Railway (L&BR) “Lyd” loco and seen displayed on “Shipmeadow”.

Some work tables:-
