Several members were unable to attend last night's meeting but those that did enjoyed watching an ARC/John Huntley video of Edwardian "railway£ film clips, a DVD of East Anglia's railways that included interesting details of the modernisation and electrification of the lines out of Liverpool Street. The line side and other detail shown on the films were of interest and created some worthwhile discussion.

The DVD of the late Dave Shakespeare's Tetley Mills was also shown. One of the group very recently acquired a part of the new Tetley Mills layout that was under construction. Measuring about 4' by 3' the baseboard holds a scenic diorama which can be seen at;

Keith who now owns it claims it was very much an impulse purchase. Built for a permanent layout it is too heavy to incorporate into a portable display layout but we await developments with bated breath.

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 27th November, when we will be taking a look at one of Mike's baseboards for his LSWR layout of Fovant, reviewing the progress we have made with the Derek Genzel test track and discussing our individual modelling activities.
