ESNG meeting – 7 August 2014

It’s definitely holiday time, as we were down to eight members this Thursday.  But it was good to have a visit from a prospective new member in Roger, who brought an engine along for the attention of Dr Loco.  Evidence of holiday time was also seen as there was just room to set up a circuit in the middle of tables for the church Holiday Club.

The eight members sort of split into two groups.  One group was intent on planning for the next Stuttgart trip in November.  We have the space for our layout allocated, that brilliantly includes a nearby junction.  Last year it was good value (if rather scary) operating the two double junctions onto our branch.

The other group ran trains.  Paul’s mega Japanese goods train was reluctant to stay coupled.  In protest he loaded Thomas, Annie and Clarabelle onto low loads and sent them on a train to the scrap yard.  Dave was running some very nice ‘Sharknoses’ with a train of B&O coaches.  Phil had some UK Pullmans on the go.  And Derek had a long train of Bullied coaches behind a ‘West Country’ Pacific.

And Allan brought a box of chocolate biscuits.

All in all, a quiet evening, but plenty happening!
