A busy club night tonight – nine members and two visitors. It was especially good to see Ian Carter after a very long time (you should give up golf, Ian) and John B was up from deepest Rye to buy lots of Swiss trains off visitor Derek (another one!) Also good to see Nick from the West Sussex Group, who dropped in for a bit.
Despite all this commerce and socialising, we did find time to run a few trains. Allan was running a long Swiss push-pull train….
Michael tested his ‘new’ Austerity and a Pannier tank on a short goods train….
I was running a parcels train….
Ian tested a Fairburn tank…
And Graham (eventually) went American on us….
The usual suspects…
And at the end of the meeting, it was very dark and pouring with rain – autumn is truly here!
