After February’s AGM we had our Model Show with more items on display than ever. Locos in various stages of construction, rakes of wagons and lineside buildings. Certificates were presented to several members.
Malcolm Parker, an excellent model maker of the Edwardian era of the South East & Chatham Railway, had died early in the year.
At the end of February we were at our layout for a spring clean and planning session. It was good to see Mick Hodden, who had done so much to start the layout project, on a visit from his home in France.
The Canterbury & Whitstable line featured in the March meeting when we used our new projector.
Sadly Frank Berry died at the beginning of June. An ex-submariner and officer with London’s Fire Service, he had donated equipment for our Nailbourne layout.
