ESNG meeting – 20 April 2016

We had a good turnout of members on Wednesday – 10 days after the show gave us all time to recover!  It was very pleasant not to have to worry about exhibition arrangements, although we have begun planning our next show at the Gaugemaster weekend on 3-4 September.  A standard running night followed…..


An interesting selection of trains in the fiddle yard, with Southern Region predominating here – Network SouthEast Class 73’s, a SouthWest Trains EMU, and an N class 2-6-0 and Maunsell coaches all in Southern Railway livery.  All courtesy of Neil, I believe.


Simon had a good train of American stock running behind a pair of Kato F7A’s.  The F7B’s are coming, but experience tells us that the club controllers can’t manage 4 powered locos.


Unfortunately, ‘Rails of Sheffield’ have a rather good sale on.  I couldn’t resist a British Rail Standard 4-6-0 in Southern Region guise.  I am sure I saw ‘Camelot’ (the nameplates were transferred from some scrapped ‘King Arthur’ class locos) at Clapham Junction, and may even have travelled behind this engine.  The model ran perfectly straight out of the box.  I didn’t test the 2 4-CEP units though, that I also picked up at about 1/3 RRP……



Other stock on the move came from the UK, Japan, and Switzerland……
