ESNG miscellany

First, a photo I forgot to post from last week’s meeting.  Electric blue must be the all-time best livery for the LMR electrics – even though this is a modern repaint. More progress on the fiddle yard on Monday.  Most … Continue reading

Sunday’s BuildDay was a little more selective – just the 4 members braved Storm Ciara to carry on with fiddle yard construction.  We did, of course start with a curry – it will take more than a little wind to … Continue reading
