It was in the last Society newsletter and was mentioned as part of all our own. I am putting together a piece that will go on the club room noticeboard and will go on the Society website

Well, as I don't recollect having had a 'last newsletter' and missed 'all your own' then I'm completely in the dark!

Garage warm enough to go into and decided modelling time today to be spent on Vimes Street. Completed the roof on the final factory building. Vents and weathering to add.

Weekend exhibiting at Ally Pally on WRMS Troutons and on the MRC second hand stall a Monon C 628 which would have been too powerful for the likes of Vimes Street but for £30 including additional decals etc and with wife currently in Germany, no council tax this month was too good an opportunity to miss

The Monon only kept the C-628's for three years or so, returning them to ALCO IN 1967, who then resold them to the Lehigh Valley. I believe the coal service they were bought for never materialised, and at nearly 400,000lbs they decimated the Monon's trackage.

 

I hope you've beefed up your baseboards .................. :nono:

Yes I understand it was coat traffic to a river, sea barge port that never happened. It runs very sweetly on the rollers and the Silver striping is very neatly applied.

Very heavy loads, these outdoor outer garments, requiring serious traction...
