ESNG meeting – 2 January 2014

Well, who was going to turn up at the first meeting in 2014?

We got a very creditable nine members in attendance, including Ian back after time out for a broken arm.  So we had a full circuit up and running.  It was nice to see a US train on the circuit, thanks to Dave Stewart.  Two Union Pacific RS-somethings pulling some long tankers and a string of boxcars.  There were also a number of the new Farish Bullied coaches in attendance.  Very nice, and the similarity to BR Mk 1’s is obvious.

Minor excitement was caused by Derek the Apps’ Farish 2-6-0, that seemed to keep stopping on rail joints and points.  A close look showed that the front guard irons were very close to the track.  Allan suggested ‘gelding’ the loco with a set of rail cutters.  Sanity won the day, and Derek will apply a needle file to the offending objects.

So that was the first meeting in January….  Next stop, a curry evening on the 11th.
