The first workshop night of the group was held last night at Ches Bod’s and attended by 4 of the group. Tea and biscuits provided kept everyone happy and chatting and various projects were on the go. Bod (alias Mark) was working on a building for his new project, Wolverhampton Low Level in EM, John was busy sorting through all his reference material for the “Once upon a time in the West” layout that is under construction and Geoff was building a batch of iron ore hoppers for the same project. I dug out a couple of projects that haven’t seen the light of day for many a year, the one being detailing and EM conversion of an old Dapol LMS brake van, something I started about 15 years ago and never completed.
Everyone agreed it was a convivial atmosphere and all are looking forward to the next get together in a couple of weeks, planned as a natter over a pint in a suitable hostelry. Once the research has been carried out to establish the venue we will know where!
