This afternoon was the first ESNG ‘BuildDay’ and it has been a success, I think. We had 8 members along, together with a number of projects to work on, observe and learn from. Or one could just enjoy good company and banter!
We weren’t quite able to start laying track on the new fiddleyard, but Derek had all the boards set up and having discussed a few details, we helped add some of the fittings. It is a very professional piece of work, and will hopefully serve the club as well as the last one.
T’other Derek worked on Raysden, repairing a little scenery, and most importantly, trimming back the platform edges. These were most probably a scale distance from the track, and steam locomotives and long coaches tend to get stuck as they are a little too wide to get through. So in future it’s a case of ‘mind the gap’. We also added another module and two end loops, so could run a few trains.
Paul was busy laying Kato track at high speed on another module.
And he also brought along the ultimate test track!
We finally packed up around 5:30pm, and will repeat the afternoon as it was both enjoyable and productive.
And a short video from Brian….
