M5-M50 Narrow Gauge Modellers – report 27 October 2016

Next meeting: Monday 28 November. Contact Nicolas Wheatley, 07773 867782

Apologies for the lack of a report in last month’s News, a gremlin got into the calendar and our meeting in October is after the deadline for this issue. However, as we’re meeting on Halloween itself Nicolas Wheatley’s Journey’s End cemetery layout is booked to appear complete with pumpkins and other spooky features.

Our September meeting was attended by 29 people, back to our usual turnout levels even though several of our larger scale modellers were missing. Martyn Davies brought along a wide selection of 009 Peco goods from Hereford Model Centre, including some just-released Hudson Rugga V skip wagons, in both liveries, which looked very attractive and suitable for any 009 layout featuring sand or minerals.

The invitations to layout operators for the Tewkesbury 2017 show are now being sent out. Keep checking the dedicated website (www.narrowgaugetewkesbury.co.uk) for latest details of the show, information is added constantly.

We will not be meeting in December, but here’s an early festive greeting to everyone, together with wishes for a Happy New Year- yes, that will be coming all too soon.

You are assured of a warm welcome at our meetings, in the company of like-minded narrow-gauge enthusiasts. We meet on the last Monday of the month, our next meetings being on 28 November and 30 January 2017 starting at 19.30 hours at Twyning village hall near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 6DF.
