Hi all,

Following on from a day on the N Gauge Society stand at Modelrail...

There was a lot of discussion about the possibility of an Area Group(or more than one) being established in Scotland.

If you are interested - please respond on here so that the degree of interest can be established.

If you are not interested - you have the choice!

Thanks
Phil H

Yes Dave aka Scottishlocos got a meet organised, about 5 turned up and ideas were brandished about.
Loads of good ideas as well.
Nothing really happened since.

Not in Scotland...

But would find a 'virtual' group focused on modelling Scottish railways worthwhile. Looking forwards, the DJM Class 17 in particular should spark an interest in modelling the transition-era Scottish Region scene. I'd have thought quite a few people will be creating, at minimum, a Scottish Region shunting plank!

Certainly, that's what I'm working on at the moment, creating a bit of natural habitat for the Class 17 when it turns up and the Dapol 26 that I bought a couple years back. As/when someone gets a Class 21/29 diesel sorted -- which will surely happen sooner or later -- that'll be even more of an incentive for people to model the Scottish Region.

Cheers, NeMo

Hi NeMo - point about a 'virtual club' noted for future reference.

Hi Ron,

Not everyone who commented on that posting was notified of the meeting.

There was a great deal of comments/queries/suggestion on the N Gauge Society stand at Modelrail again today.

Thanks
Thanks

Intrigued and interested. What would be the aims of such a group?  This is not a negative response, but for sure an interested one.
