Another pleasant afternoon playing trains, with a bakers dozen or so of members and friends attending.
Paul brought along part of his Kato Racetrack, with transition boards to change from Kato Unitrack to N-mod standards. 20′ of layout just about fits in our hall, with the corner boards added each end. Though one or two members had to breath in a bit to get around the layout….
There’s a lot more to do to the boards, adding scenic detail and a station, but even in this form the boards make a welcome addition to the circuit. They’re ideal for PlayDay running, but perhaps a bit much for Paul to transport for the evening meetings. In the picture below, three trains are making good use of the long straight opposite Paul’s boards.
Simon was testing a new purchase – Kato Southern Pacific steam, though he was muttering about getting rid of the gorgeous Daylight livery for boring Santa Fe black….
Neil was running a Scottish 37 with a steel train….
And a white van man delivery train….
And Neil also had a Revolution Pendolino for inspection and test running. A lovely model that ran smoothly out of the box.
And of course, we were fed through the afternoon by Mile’s cake, and then retired for a curry in the evening.
