Saw the start of our weekend.
Six of our members came to the church centre in the afternoon to move all our boards from the cupboard upstairs so the cob webbs could be dusted off and the motor spun.
By 9pm all boards were assembled and tested, everything was set for Saturday.
With the boards all out the fun started at 9am sharp. We dispenses with our usual scones tradition and got straight down to running and building.
The group split into four
Our eldest and youngest members on the main board, then in increasing and decreasing age we got to the extension board
By the end of the day we saw the wiring and points all completed on the extension board (testing is for another article).
On the main board every possible combination of engine and carriage has been tried, even ones that smoked!
By 4pm the group grew tired, so we wound things up for the day, at least the boards could be left out.
With only a couple of hours a few more combinations of engine and carriages could be tried and the Piano hinge board had taken on a christmas feel
The wiring on the extension board was tested and some faults with one of the single points were corrected.
Then came the great packup.
By working as a team, and splitting the group we managed to have everything back in the cupboard by 4:30pm just in time for tea!
A great weekend was had by all, young and old We have some great pictures and movies that show the weekend
