Six hardy members turned up for Sunday afternoon’s running session. This was an interesting meeting, as (1) there were no dashboards – the circuit was entirely made up of real modules, and (2) we’d almost brought enough trains to compensate for the lack of Paul’s Japanese selection.
Modules consisted of Derek’s Doverswood, Dave’s canal basin, and my new boards (must think up a name…..)
I was pleased that my boards still worked after ballasting the main line. Allan was running a Swiss push-pull train, with the loco somewhere in the middle. Totally prototypical, I’m told – at ESNG it usually happens when half a train uncouples and is collected by the loco next time around.
Derek was having a continental afternoon….
Brian added a little Dutch flavour….
My own contribution was British…..
And Brian recorded it all on film – and to music by another of my favourite bands!
All in all, a pleasant afternoon. Good, too, to see the days getting longer, as when we had packed up, it was still light outside.
