After the rush of members last meeting, it was quieter again this Thursday. However, there were plenty of trains on the move, and it was also a chance to check a few details about Stuttgart plans.
I spotted this Model Power ‘almost a Birney’ on Ebay and got it for £25. ‘Poor runner’ it said, but it at least moved itself around the layout. A new – perhaps Kato – chassis is needed, then details and repainting Pacific Electric red or Sacramento Northern green. Or why not one of each?
Honest John was testing this fine ‘Crocodile’.
Paul was having a European night, but still running long goods trains…..
Derek was running a BR Standard 4-6-0 and Bullied coaches…..
ESNG members – remember PlayDay on Sunday 13 November, and then no meeting on Wednesday 16 November – a significant proportion of the members will be in Stuttgart.
I’ve always been a fan of the Model Power trolleys. Neat models for sure and should be easy enough to re-power.
If you ever need more, just ask. I know I still have some here.
Thanks, Chris – I’ll think about that offer very seriously – but not before I try and fix these two!!
