Fylde Area Group (March 2019)

Postby mike_t_norris » Tue Apr 09, 2019 10:29 am

The 21st of March was quite an eventful day, firstly thanks to Richard Dunning and Tony Williams we had an invitation to Dean Hall the home of Manchester Model Railway Society, to view and run on Slattocks their S4 layout. The Nottingham Area Group was also included in the invite, so it was a very good day, with lots to see and a wealth of discussion with a variety of people and topics. A photo is included below to show Richard Bullied running past the Alpha Mill which dominates the sky line, a wonderful model by Ralph Roberson and now has its engine house added alongside.

There were 10 members present from the Fylde group so a good turnout to support the event.

We were treated to tours of the building, their other layouts and its facilities, including extensive workshop and library the day included an excellent lunch laid on by the club.

Many Thanks to Richard, Tony and the Team at Manchester, Well Done everyone!

This was followed in the evening by our usual monthly meeting with seven members present, unfortunately it should have been eight but John was thwarted by traffic on the way so had to return home!

Richard brought along a couple of his locos and coaches, a much modified Hornby Standard Class 3 Tank and T9, along with a couple of rakes of coaches, as usual all ran perfectly (Photos below).

Our next meeting is on Thursday 11th April, a ‘Run & Natter’ session starting at 17:30 for 20:00; please contact myself the organiser (details on the Blue Sheet) for more information.
