Members Musings & other hobbies:

Whilst tiding up in the club room,  one of the talented, hard working but quiet members asked me (one of website admins) if there was a place on it for his projects and of course there is. Jamie is very good at making models including a few kits for myself which will be added at a later date on here. He started off in N gauge but soon found himself wanting more detail and sold up his N gauge with the full intentions of going into O gauge like his old man. Which he did, building over two hundred wagons and coaches in a short span of a few years.

Here are some of Jamies N gauge models he built.

A day trip to Edinburgh:

Jamie was a frequent travel by rail a few years ago and told us about how he went upto Edinburgh on a excursion train.

Keighley And Worth Valley Railway Steam Gala March 2023

The annual visit the KWVR for the Spring Steam Gala was not to be missed with two black fives visiting (44871 and 45407 'The Lanashire Fusilier' and Jubilee class 45690 'Leander'.  The home fleet included 52044, 75078, 45212, 1054, 85, 45596 'Bahamas' as well as 78022 (which didn't run).

45407 has a wonderful chime whistle that could be heard echoing across the valley, you definately knew that locomotive was on its way.

Jeffs scratch built items

These great pictures are of our stand in chairman jeff currans scratch built models . the following are jeffs own words

These photos are of some of my timber built structures have been built over a number of years, with the intention of building a layout for my on30 stock which i have collected over the last 5 or 6 years. As with many things life throws many curved balls and things dont go as hoped , however it is still my intention to try and put something together .

                                                                                                                                        The buildings include a general store ,provender store, engine shed and workshop. the trestle bridge was a particular  challenge as every part is scratch built ,its not a kit to make sure it stayed in one piece  every joint is drilled and pinned with hand made nuts and washers. i think my biggest challenge is  trying to complete projects.
