M5-M50 Narrow Gauge Modellers – report 30 March 2015
Next meeting: Monday 27 April.
Our numbers in March were somewhat depleted, yet 21 people turned up for our usual mix of railway interest and social interaction. As a pre-Easter treat our refreshments included some hot cross buns, which went down well. The attendance of the West Midlands contingent was appreciated, as they’d had a very busy weekend. Our best wishes were sent to one of their group, Lee Allen, who is not at all well, and we hope to see him again soon.
Martyn Davies brought along a selection of new 009 items from Hereford Model Centre which were for sale at discounted prices, and this addition to our meetings appears to be going well. Pre-orders for the new Bachmann Baldwin 009 locos were being taken, again at favourable prices, and several members expressed an interest.
Layout invitations for our Open Day on 10 October 2015 will shortly be sent out and the plans to hold the October 2017 open day at a school in Tewkesbury were discussed again.
You can be assured of a warm welcome at our meetings, in the company of like-minded narrow-gauge enthusiasts, whose interests cover a variety of scales. We meet on the last Monday of the month, our next meetings being on 27 April and 25 May (Bank Holiday), starting at 19.30 hours at Twyning village hall near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 6DF.
