ESNG – a blast from the past!

Allan and Sean produced these excellent pictures.  Some very young looking people around!  First, setting up for a club night, over 20 years ago.  Bartlett junior in the background of the second picture!!

Then Sean’s layout – same era, but a club show at the church in the first picture, and an away fixture at the Merstham show (long gone and much lamented) in the second.

Sean commented on Facebook…..

My Swiss layout I built as a teenager. Loved this layout but the board warped so ended its life

And the comments included….

Bargain time again.  Unfortunately, a contributer to RMweb was selling up his book collection due to ill health.  I was very restrained, and only bought these.  The illustrated history of wagon books filled a gap in my own collection – I have the LSWR and LBSCR volumes (that also include the SDJR and the Isle of Wight, bought from new, but never bothered with the later books.  A lot of good browsing here, and a few useful ideas for Minories, I hope.
