ESNG meeting – 18 May 2022

Another Wednesday meeting, as the first one in the month was delayed by the local elections.  Once again, a pleasant evening playing trains.  The evening involved a degree of shift working.  Four of us were there all evening, Michael came for the first hour, then retreated home ready for and early start for work.  Derek (Atfield) rolled in just in time to help us pack up.  I’m not sure how he was convinced that the new Downton Abbey movie was better than an evening running trains.

Of course Derek not being there for set up meant that we faced the challenge of how his new club corners were unpacked.  We succeeded in getting them set up with no crises or bad language……

 Michael’s train for the night showed the cosmopolitan interests of the club….


Chris and I had a southern night…..

Derek (Apps) ran a goods train….


Simon, of course, was running American stock, especially a very long train of tankers…..


We did have a lot of trouble with track joints.  It’s strange – some days there are no problems at all – others everything derails.  Simon was able, though, to model this realistic accident.  It just sort of toppled over……
