A Gathering

This afternoon I visited a gathering of layouts and like-minded railway modellers. All the layouts (mostly Narrow Gauge) were superb, and the informal atmostphere was nice. There was a sizeable contingent of minimum-gauge models, Gn15 being particularly popular. That scale packs a lot of detail!

Some of the layouts were shown in an under-construction state, including that of fellow Sussex Downs 009 group member Phil Savage, based on the Darjeeling Himalayan railway. Even at this stage of construction, it couldn't be anywhere else could it?

Another one in the early stages of construction was the Harrogate Gas Works by another friend Steve Fulljames. I'm watching this one develop with interest.

I'm always filled with inspiration (and envy!) when I see such pics. Look what you did! ;)

Glad you enjoyed the afternoon. Spotted you, but didn't get a chance to chat.

Meant to say hello but had to bring toddler with me, which made adult conversation tricky! Hope you enjoyed it too.
