The East Yorkshire Area Group increased their membership by 50% recently when Dave Burman and Chris Leach were joined by James Wells, a talented young (well, compared to the other two of us!) modeller. His enthusiasm has spurred us all on to greater efforts. The picture shows, l to r, Dave, James and Chris standing by the group's under-construction NER layout, Botanic Gardens, which is hosted by the Hull Model Railway Society.

Work continues apace on the East Yorkshire Area Group's layout Botanic Gardens, and wiring up of the plain track and pointwork on the entrance to the coal yard is aproaching completion. James Wells has been busy building more loco stock (a Class E (J71) from a using a Mainline body and Mainly Trains chassis kit) so at least we'll have several options to test the trackwork!

James has also started a couple of new blogs on his own activities: more details soon! There is also a thread on the Botanic Gardens project on the RMweb model railway web forum.
