March 2020 Meeting

Our March meeting was somewhat overshadowed by the coronavirus scare, however, five braved the journey to prepare and the now familiar task of loading the cars for our next exhibition appearance at the Abingdon & District MRC (ABRAIL) on Saturday 21 March.

We have been experiencing a mysterious locomotive stall on the Back Yard Feed despite 'stay alive' being fitted. David and Alan checking for light showing a dip in the track.

We eventually discovered that the addition of an anchor bolt to the underside of the track board to the base frame - to solve another joining problem - was to blame. 

David produced his two diesel brake tenders now with running detail and weathered colours.

Alan showed a custom crossover with servo controlled point motors, an intended test for Evercreech Junction.
