Seven members present today, most of whom were there for the afternoon work party and fish and chips. It was mainly a testing afternoon. We set up a large circuit to try out Mr Atfield’s new club corners and a resuscitated dash board.
All worked well, though there’s a bit of ply on one board that may need a bit of fettling. Back to the workshop now for ballast and perhaps a little scenery.
Elsewhere, we worked out that we’ll need to replace a point in the fiddle yard, as the tie bar is damaged. And perhaps add more droppers to the boards as one or two sections had a large voltage drop. Another afternoon’s work may well be needed!
However, the Chairman managed to fix railings to his N-club ‘Temporary Bridge.” You wouldn’t catch me crossing it in a train, though!
It was mainly an American running afternoon and night. Funny how that happens sometimes, though it’s rare to have a USA session. Chris tested his Metroliner EMU.
Simon had a good range of steam pulling fruit express reefers, plus a diesel lash up…
And I got my full D&H passenger train out again, that ran impeccably…
A pleasant and relaxed session (except when the two Derek’s were trying to repair the fiddle yard point!)
