We would have been in Stuttgart :-( – 3

And some of Allan’s pictures from last year.  Once again, setting up and socialising seem to appear in a lot of shots.  And some ESNG members are evident, as always. This should be the last reminiscences!  Back to 2020, now….

We would have been in Stuttgart :-( – 2

More 2015 reminiscences from Mr Dawes…… First full day at the model railway show in Stuttgart.  Party at the end made it worthwhile.  Why can’t British shows be like this? This train ferry made a perfect way of separating the … Continue reading

ESNG meeting – 4 November 2020

A pre-lockdown special tonight.  Not that lockdown makes any difference to Zoom…. We peaked at nine persons logged in (plus one cat), and the conversation even touched upon railways once or twice.  By the time we’ve all talked about lockdown, … Continue reading

ESNG meeting – 21 October 2020

A record breaking evening on Zoom.   We started with just the four of us.  That included an impressive display with John and Alpenbahn, and five trains running around.  Paul was on-line, but no trains running, due to some wiring issues … Continue reading
