M5-M50 Narrow Gauge Modellers – report 28 November 2016

Next meeting: Monday 30 January 2017. Contact Nicolas Wheatley, 07773 867782

Our last meeting of 2016 was attended by 28 people and involved the consumption of much festive food. It was particularly good to see various people who had been working hard over the weekend at the Warley show, especially those on the 009 Society stand. Dave Churchill brought along a Minitrains loco that he had been modifying at Warley and various other items were put through their paces on our test tracks. The money collected for attendance will be donated to two charities, The Railway Children and Crisis at Christmas, as chosen by the people at the meeting.

We will not be meeting in December, but hopefully Santa will have brought some good gifts and the New Year break will provide some useful opportunities for building new layouts – or just finishing off an existing one! Do bring along any festive acquisitions to our January meeting for others to admire – or covet!

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 30 January and 27 February 2017 starting at 19.30 hours at Twyning village hall near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 6DF.
