Another Thursday meeting, and despite the Chairman and Secretary being cream-crackered, and the Treasurer being sick and mental, we soon had a circuit up and running. The usual suspects are seen hard at work playing trains…..
A good turnout of 10 members were present, and it was especially good to see Ian Sparshott, who seems to have done nothing but work for the past year.
It was American night at ESNG, even without me contributing a train. Simon’s Santa Fe mixed train looked the part, and Grahams Kato Illinois Central rake (far right) was doing its usual high speed circuits.
Derek was trying out some US stock he had bought with a collection way back. I’m not sure of this rake’s parentage….
Although goods trains with a mixture of stock types are more prototypical and perhaps interesting, there’s much to be said for 4 or 5 identical vans, as with Simon’s train here….
But you can never escape the Great Western – Phil’s Large Prairie and Pullman rake looked very smart.
