February 2008 Meeting

February's meeting was, as one of our number commented, a lively and productive evening.

I continued to build wagon chassis, not very exiting, and Bill brought along a rake of goods vans which he has built for Long Melford.

Both the David's where building track work, David S is using the easiline system utilising Bill Blackburn's jigs to construct track for his planned layout of Ongar, Essex. He plans to enter this for the Golden Jubilee Challenge. David Es' track building utilises bullhead rail soldered direct to the sleepers using his own jig which I think I am right in saying is designed to give a slightly wider sleeper spacing for his layout Framsden, also an entry in the Golden Jubilee Challenge.

Finally a couple of photos of the Framsden baseboard and embryo layout.

Our next meeting will take place on 27 March, if you would like to join in contact details can be found in the 06/07 Yearbook.
