ESNG meeting – PlayDay 13 May 2018

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.
