Someone once said "there's no such think as bad publicity" which sums up our reaction to the featured and simultaneous appearance of Lightermans Yard in both the 2mm Magazine (front cover and inside cover) and full colour spread in the N Gauge Journal (pages 28 and 29). Both unsolicited and a complete, and welcomed, surprise!
This meeting’s guest loco was David Smith's SER/SECR/SR/BR R1 under construction. This model is destined for Lightermans Yard, working alongside the G6.
... and, left, a R1 reference shot of the loco in Southern days.

The meeting closed with general discussion about an away-day to a heritage line possibly taking the place of a monthly meeting - most probable contender is the Bluebell Line (as long as we don't choose a diesel weekend!)
