We had planned to have an ESNG ‘PlayDay’ on Saturday, setting up the club N-mod circuit for the whole day rather than just for an evening. This has been a success in the past, as people can drop in and socialise, and also bring more trains to run than for our more rushed evening meetings. However, it turned out that all the committee and key-holders were either busy or potentially double booked that day. I wasn’t sure who else was coming, so reluctantly cancelled the day.
No sooner had a sent the mail out than the replies started coming back to me. The general tone was, “Yes, I was looking forward to the running day, but I was REALLY looking forward to the curry afterwards. So accepting the inevitable, I convened a meeting of the ESNG Curry Club at the Ruchita, Earlswood, on Saturday night.
The Indian State Railways Restaurant Car Study Group is the best supported section of ESNG. Eight members, the hon. auditor, and two wives turned up. Conversation did tend towards railways (prototype and model), but also was wide ranging. Altogether a successful evening!
I did take my camera, but the flash seems to have given up – so here’s a stock picture of a curry to give you the general idea.
