Of course, I forgot the camera this meeting. Paul broke his previous records by running a Japanese push-pull train around a 9 x 9 circuit. His next aim is the 100 wagon goods train. Now we were doing that in the 1960’s in ‘O’ gauge…..
Other trains worth viewing included two American set ups – Ted’s blue Overland coaches hauled by a small steam locals, and Dave’s rake of assorted coaches (including some open sided ones) hauled by a couple of Union Pacific Alco’s. And Neil’s Blue Pullman with a couple of extra coaches made an elegant show. I started to run in my Deltic. There was a moment of panic when it didn’t move when I applied power, but that turned out to be a wiring issue in the fiddle yard.
And the latest Swiss photo update from the Chairman shows that the Swiss also have issues with wiring. Even the ESNG show doesn’t have extension leads like this!
