Autumn 2012

Faversham Meeting  17th November 2012

We had a dozen for our “Bring a Book and a Model” afternoon.  Ross brought a circle of track which we set out at the front of the room with locos and stock.  At the back of the room another table held more stock, a loco and news items.  My L&Y Pug pottered round with Maurice’s freight  wagons, as did Nigel’s red 4F, but the sharp curves defeated longer wheelbases.  Vintage tinplate didn’t even try.  Gathering around the tables in turn, we heard about many models we don’t usually see, and found what reading matter inspires us to research, model or journey.  Earlier eight of us had chatted over lunch at “The Chimney Boy”.

The members have been extra busy of late putting in mid-week sessions on the layout as well as our usual fortnightly weekends.  A sliding fiddle yards has been assembled, electrics examined and landscape started.  As we all enjoy modelling and problem solving, it has been great fun.  Despite some rain we have usually lunched in the open air, talking over many subjects in addition to railways.

We had our first town meeting featuring photos of our activities over the last two years, with plenty of construction tips and suggestions.  We will be at the Temple Ewell Show with the Nailbourne layout.
