The latest meeting of the Scalefour Netherlands Area Group (SNAG) took place on 10th February at the home of Gerco van Zetten in Bodegraven. There was a very good turn out and we had a most enjoyable afternoon. Activities included: a tour of Gerco's workshop including a chance to look at some of his wonderful P87 loco's and rolling stock; a DVD of Den Bosch 98, featuring Wim's 'Pippin Lane' Vincent de Bode's 'Flintfield' and Iain Rice's 'Bodesmeer'; we also had many interesting discussions and several members brought along their recent creations to show the rest of the group, including Jos Blatter's latest etchings, jigs and tools.
Attention now moves to the Rail 08 exhibition next month in its new location in Houten, where there will be several visitors from the UK. For details see http://www.rail.nl/
