ESNG Open Day 2023

Well, that’s the Open Day done and dusted.  As usual quite hard work, but a success and we had a lot of fun with a glorified running day.  We were unsure how many would turn up through the door, but numbers were reasonable (probably better than I expected) and the hall seemed quite busy at times.  It was also great to have a good number of local families visiting.  As with most of our shows, we seemed to have people who visited and stayed a long time.

Saturday was made easy by having a leisurely set up on Friday afternoon.  Nick and Nigel arrived early afternoon to set up Königshafen – it’s first outing since they visited Stuttgart with us in 2017.


Three of us set up the N-mod layout, and come Saturday morning there were just a few odd jobs to do before opening time.


Our other layout was Sean’s Leonard, another old(ish) friend, but always worth a look.


The N-mod was kept busy running member’s trains.  Simon filled ERIC with American locos.

A few more pictures of Königshafen.

Also there was Richard, with a little display of his modelling interests.  People seemed to especially like the army vehicles.

And Derek and Neil trying (with some success) to sell things.


Overall an excellent day and it was especially good to see a number of old friends and members visiting.

And of course, the Open Day ended with a curry.
