Fylde Area Group (March 2020)

Postby mike_t_norris » Thu Mar 26, 2020 4:47 pm

A small group of intrepid modellers met on the 19th March, for what appears to be the last meeting for some time. There were 5 members present and apologies from three.

Amongst those present was a new member Geoff Mather, who is just rekindling a desire to build his railway following retirement. Although it was not quite our usual meeting, I hope there was enough discussion and encouragement that he will come along once more when the current lock-down situation abates.

As there was nothing brought along to run I have added a couple of shots of my recently completed big engine, all I need now is the nerve to weather it!

As mentioned we decided to cancel the next two meeting which will take us to the 18th June, which is a host event at Anthony Millers, Lowton St. Mary layout, let’s hope things start to return to normality before then. If there are any changes to this plan I will update the forum to advise.

Please stay safe and do a bit of model building!

Very much so. A brilliant job. Perhaps it has come straight off the shed after the cleaners have been at it. :)

Agreed, wonderful work.
Make Worcestershire great again.
Build a wall along the Herefordshire border and make them pay for it.

Thank you - very kind comments - still think it needs a bit of weathering, especially after travelling to Preston from Euston.
Now have to build another one, this time a long firebox version!
