This month we went back to Graeme’s and had another look at Thornbury. Only 5 of us this time so a bit more room to spread out and get on with various projects.
I didn’t take pictures of what we were generally doing but Ben was making lamps for Sturminister – I assume pictures will be on his blog in due course. Greg was building some kits, I was putting transfers on Tar Wagons – more of which in a forthcoming 2mm Magazine once I finish writing it up and get Amity to take some decent photos.
David brought along his second operating layout in almost as many months… In actual fact it is a bit of a group effort and is merely a running in circle of 2mm soldered track – every 4th sleeper appears with the rest missed out. It hasn’t a name because it isn’t really a layout but we are considering calling it Down Under MSW in homage to the well known circle Over There although ours is a pair of rectangular boards 1200x600.
Lastly we rounded up the new Jinties everyone seems to be buying here – 8 in attendance chiefly owing to word getting out that the LMS ones were around 20 quid cheaper than the pre-order on BR ones. Cue much purchasing with 4 members getting LMS ones in the next fortnight from the news. Mine are destined to be come BR with the remaining 7524’s getting renumbered in LMS condition – possibly all in the 752x range!
With 8 there we had to take a photo – sorry for the far end one being out of focus! From Left to Right – SDJR 23, LMS, LMS, Beginning BR, BR, LMS, LMS and LMS.
