M5-M50 Narrow Gauge Modellers – report 27 July 2015

Next meeting: Monday 31 August, Bank Holiday.

Our last meeting saw 25 people enjoying even more cake than usual whilst sharing their enthusiasm for all things narrow gauge, including a DVD of narrow-gauge Garratt locos in South Africa, kindly brought in by Bob Ayres. The test tracks were providing their usual facilities for members to run locos and stock, though regrettably these were not recorded.

Some time was spent discussing the plans for our Open Day, on Saturday 10 October 2015 at Corse & Staunton Village Hall, Gloucester Road (A417), Staunton, GL19 5RQ. The show opens at 10.00 and the 009 Sales Stand will be in attendance, admission £4.00, under 16s free. The group sends its best wishes to Steve Mann, who was due to have some surgery the day after our meeting. Hopefully his recovery is going well and Steve will be showing his layout at the Open Day in October.

You can be assured of a warm welcome at our meetings, in the company of like-minded narrow-gauge enthusiasts, whose interests cover a variety of scales. We meet on the last Monday of the month, our next meetings being on 31 August (Bank Holiday) and 28 September, starting at 19.30 hours at Twyning village hall near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 6DF.
