ESNG meeting – 29 January 2023

Not a good start to the afternoon when I received this photo from Allan & Derek, returning from the Eastleigh exhibition…..


A car fire (seen in the distance) had held them up on the M3, but they rolled in to the meeting only 20 or so minutes late.  And in the end we had a busy afternoon, with 11 members in attendance (and a good curry to finish.)

A fair size circuit was quickly set up…


And trains were soon speeding around the main line.  (Faster with some operators than others!)

Little & Large #1.  Phil brought along this lovely O gauge Heljan Class 33 diesel.  It came from his late brother, like Phil a train fan, but modelling in O.  He worked for the Crompton company during development of the electrics for the Class 33s (alias Cromptons.)  Although like Phil a steam fan, this loco was a must for him.  A wonderful model (makes you want to go into the senior scale) and a precious family memory.


Little & Large #2.  No comment!


Trains running included items from Lucas….




Simon (with sound)….


And Brian…..

Doctor, I keep seeing blue elephants……


And as ever, Brian took some good footage of the afternoon.
