First club night of the new year, and despite the Chairman not being there due to anti-social working hours, 13 members enjoyed a varied procession of trains on the layout. Mind you, Ian doesn’t look too excited by proceedings in the picture below, or perhaps it was the Treasurer’s conversation skills?
There was a strong American flavour contributed by Simon, Ian and Graham. Here, Simon’s Con-Cor PA-PB-PA set head an express parcels train.
And Ian’s Metra double-deck push-pull rake ran as well as it looked.
Meanwhile, Paul was filling the fiddle yard with Japanese tankers, preparing for the usual long goods train.
Derek was running an Longmoor Military Railway ex-WD 2-8-0 and passenger stock. The WD looks rather more impressive in blue and red than the more usual BR grimy black.
And Peter contributed, amongst other things, two more early German multiple units.
All in all a good social evening!
