Last week’s club meeting was a running night which saw a busy test track with a variety of different models running, some of which can be seen in the photos below. Items brought in by our members included a HO scale inspection trolley with wagons, a OO gauge Royal Train consisting of 67006 Royal Sovereign and matching coaches, a trio of OO gauge Westerns amongst other diesel locos, a HO New South Wales Garratt with hopper wagons, a number of OO-9 narrow gauge locos, and some long N gauge goods trains from different eras.

While all of these trains were running a few of our other members continued working on some of their modelling projects. Progress continued with both the OO gauge shunting layout, Nailsea Wharf and the N gauge layout, Dixon’s Gate. Also pictured is a trio of Ivatt locos in EM scale that were being worked on by our club chairman for his layout, Great Swilling.
