Thursday 15th April saw the group meet via Zoom; with 9 members on-line and apologies from two.

We had a general chat around the group to ensure everyone was well and cover a few contacts that I had made with Martin Walmsley and Graham Seed.
Ian Mac Cormac once again stole the show, saying he had been ‘Blown Away!’ by what he had managed to achieve with 3D printing. He had managed to get a 0-6-0 Cudworth firebox goods loco (from 1860) as a one piece print for the tender and one for the loco in both 4mm and 7mm scales. The results certainly looked amazing.

Karl Crowther then gave us an update on the state of his Kendal Castle layout and the article that was in the MRJ, along with details of the signalling which will appear over the coming issues produced by Howard Bolton.

David Gardner also provided an update on telegraph pole and relay boxes, along with a discussion on later Fish Vans.

Finally we had the latest from Steve Leal and his LBSCR 4 w bolsters (Warren Shepherd).

The next Zoom meeting is arranged for Thursday 20th May at 8.00pm
