Seven members again tonight, and a relaxed evening playing trains. The treasurer returned after a touch of covid, but it must have affected him as he forgot to collect the subs from two members.
It doesn’t take long to set up a small layout, and the new fiddle yard seems to ensure that the boards fit together without a 3″ gap to close between the last two boards.
British goods trains were the theme of the evening, at least until Graham ran some US stock. A contrast from Sunday, when European trains ruled. It just shows the variety of interests in the club, and the strength of a modular layout, where it’s all Rule 1, and anything goes.
There was also some loco testing, including this Poole Farish ‘Crab’. One of their best early models, that really caught the proportions and character of the real thing.
