Wednesday evening saw a momentous event; the first three boards built for Heyno Junction were fitted together.  Yes although cut and built from plans they fitted perfectly without need for any real fettling!  A real achievement!!  Dave S has now ordered the leg kits and once they are constructed the layout will be free standing,  we will then be able to build more boards starting with the complex board J, which will be a challenge!  Progress at last.

It was good to see some younger visitors running a Warship with coaches on Mira road, they seem to be enjoying themselves.
A couple of Virgins were seen on Holly Junction, one with a large overhang which skimmed a bridge parapet, maybe she needs to trim down??
Bob A continues to work on his new impressively detailed layout this time without a railtour in sight.
There were two visitors during the during the afternoon who viewed the layouts with interest particularly the freight train on summit.  They are potential new members, more are always welcome!  A good attendance this week with 24 members in to Play trains and other activities.  I must bring in something to play with on Gas works  it needs a work up before open Day.
I am away next week, I will not be’ Stuck’ abroad like our chairman so see you in two weeks. Keep up the good work!!
