23 September 2019: Luton

We started a new season of meetings with a modelling session at a new venue, the Farley Methodist Church Hall in Luton. Our host, Malcolm, brought some of his locomotive collection and we particularly admired the transformation that he had achieved working on a really rather rough 3D print – and resisting the temptation to shove a Kato 1013 chassis underneath it. David and Matthew were building Dundas kits and showing the latest Bachmann slate quarry buildings. Stephen S was fitting flush-glazed windows to a trio of Simplexes. Stephen C was preparing some Skytrex packing cases for a larger-scale layout. Andi H was modifying the couplings on this stock in search of greater reliability. Brian had brought along one of his stock boxes and suggested ways in which this might be done. Danny was building a loco shed to suit a Minitrains Gmeinder. Bob was building a rake of 16 Campbeltown coal wagons, which ran round the test track hauled by his outside-framed Kerr Stuart Princess. In an AGM, we resolved to try something closer to a traditional Open Day for our 2020 exhibition, and to investigate the possibilities of building a modular layout within the group.
