Our October meeting at the "Thatched House" raised ten members of the Group. Keith Bradbury had brought the interior to be fitted into one of his coaches, complete with lighting (its wiring neatly fitted into a false ceiling), pictures and mirrors on the compartment partitions, and upholstered seats; they looked comfortable but we didn't try them. Also on show was a trestle brought by James Moorhouse which can be adjusted to counter any possible deviation of floor level just as long as he remembers to take his spirit level.
We did some planning ahead, the most important part of this being the fixing of a date to visit Mike Norris's Preston layout on Saturday 25th April 2009. A few days before this, 17th April, our regular third Tuesday of the month meeting, Mike is coming to give us a talk on the layout. The venue for this meeting is not yet decided, but hopefully I will have sent another report to Scalefour News before this.
Our default meeting night is still the third Tuesday of the month, and our default venue is still the Thatched Cottage. Any local members or any member visiting the area is very welcome to join us, but please contact me to be sure that we have not arranged a visit to some othe local attraction (railway, of course). My phone number is (0113) 2679385.
