This month has seen the usual mix of activities during our Tuesday evening meetings.
The talk evening at the start of the month was led by club member David Burnett and was all about modelling in EM scale. The talk covered the basics of how EM scale differs from OO and P4 scales and how David has made decisions regarding building his models. On a subsequent modelling evening David was happy to explain the construction of EM pointwork to another club member who is now interested in modelling in the same scale. The photo below shows a selection of Davids EM scale rolling stock, some kit built and some converted from OO gauge models.
The running evening on the second Tuesday of the month saw a number of modern image and steam locos running in both OO and N gauge, including recent releases from Graham Farish and Dapol in the smaller scale. A couple of HO scale American locomotives also made an appearance hauling a rake of freight cars.
