Zoom time once again. Unfortunately missing the Cha(i)rman again, as he was unwell (not Covid-19). We were also joined by Peter, and by Maxine to check up on us all. Simon was showing off his 3-D printed Daleks. Graham was still only transmitting one word in two, but held up a note saying that he is getting new internet on Friday. So next meeting, we may get the all-singing, all-dancing version.
We discussed ESNG meetings, and like the emails I had received from a couple of people, thought that we might as well write 2020 off. However, one bright idea was to get 3 or 4 of us to meet up to do more work on the fiddleyard. That is worth pursuing, though we’ll watch the increase of cases of covid for the next couple of weeks before doing anything.
What would it have been like to live through the Spanish flu pandemic in 1918-19? We are fortunate in some ways, that we have all the forms of electronic communication to stop us being totally isolated.
To close, a couple of photos to inspire the creative juices. First, Chicago in 1956. I like the low level goods yard parallel to the main station.
And second, somewhere in Europe just after WW2. It would make an interesting model.
