ESNG meeting – 4 January 2023

Back for the new year, and a very respectable nine members turned up to run trains.

The afternoon was again spent working on the new fiddle yard, doing some final wiring and then rewiring when things didn’t quite work.

There was a slight diversion when Allan taught Mr Apps how to send an email…..

We paused for a fish and chips dinner, and thought that we wouldn’t be able to get the yard running.  But a moment of inspiration, some pins in the plugs swapped over, and it all worked.  A lot of track cleaning (there was three years patina on the rails, let alone all the glue and general gunge) and the first trains ran through the yard.

We’ll test it for a couple more meetings (letting the members loose on it is a form of testing to destruction), before we ballast the track.  Very satisfying – a job complete!

On the tracks, I ran in my ochre brown Class 31.  Lovely model!

Simon and Neil were running long trains.

Trains were run…..  tea was drunk….   world was put to rights….

And finally, Sean’s interesting PW train.
