ESNG meeting – 19 February 2020

Starting today with Monday’s fiddle yard session.  And this week’s competition.  How many ESNG members does it take to fit a SEEP point motor?  Actually, 3 is pretty realistic.  One to hold the board vertical, one to make sure the jig stays on the point to keep the blades central, and one underneath to drill the holes….

But we’re getting there.  All the track is down on the end boards, so next week we can lay some more on the 4′ central sections.

And by the end of the afternoon we had 4 out of the 12 point motors in place.

And the it will be time to fit microswitches to the points, and wire things up.

And of course, Brian was there with his camera….


Wednesday’s club night was a little subdued, with just the 7 members.  The outer tracks looked very empty without Paul’s Japanese trains (though no doubt they will soon be full of his latest holiday purchases.)  And Mr Apps was on family duty, and Mr Dawes had an early milk round (again.)  But there were plenty of trains to run.

Mr Atfield was testing a series of coffee grinders Lima pannier tanks. Who needs a sound chip?

And Chris had this lovely little Canadian goods train to run.


And meanwhile, at home, Brian was running a Pullman rake…
