ESNG meeting – 15 August 2018

Good to see 12 persons at last night’s meeting – and the treasurer was delighted that some of them even paid up their annual subs!

We got Raysden out of Derek’s garage for the evening.  We wanted to take it to the Gaugemaster show, but also wanted to check that it has survived the hot summer.  All was well, just a couple of signals warped a little, and the white metal water tower bent slightly under its own rather top heavy weight.  Otherwise, the modelling looks as good as ever.

 

We did have a slight problem with one of Paul’s bullets, as the platform clearances were too tight for it.  I recall that this is totally prototypical – most recently in Italy where the new multiple units wouldn’t fit between the platforms.

 

Derek was running a GWR goods train….

Simon’s short American goods train passes through Raysden….

 

Followed by a Shay and some tourist coaches.  Not sure about the H&S implications of the coaches….
