I’d missed too many club meetings with travels and holidays, and was missing the chance to meet with friends and watch the trains go by.
Early June we had a working party, where two workers were supervised by two others. But we did get some wiring faults repaired on the fiddle yard, and some track laid on the new corners. And as ever the afternoon finished with a curry to
celebrate commiserate on the Cha(I)rman’s birthday.
The next Wednesday meeting was well attended, although it was one of those record hot June days. It was good to welcome Ian Buck along, and he brought some interesting stock to run. I’m been tempted by the Napa Valley Wine Train, but it’s not really the same without the wine. The technicolour Japanese bullet train celebrates one of those strange Japanese cartoon series. Ian said the train is decorated with vinyls – but surely they would peel off at the extreme speeds these trains reach?
And Neil was testing a couple of modern German rakes.
A reminder to ESNG members – this Thursday is the AGM. Come along for another riveting evening’s entertainment….
