I spent a very enjoyable day at Stowmarket Model Railway club’s exhibition with Kelvin, his layout Sefton Yard, Graham and Kelvin’s son John. Kelvin’s wife Audrey also attended, supporting Kelvin and provided some well needed refreshments as well as an early bacon sandwich.Yum Yum!
Sefton Yard is a small O gauge goods yard equipped with Spratt and Winkle un-couplings which make hands free running really enjoyable. The day went relatively well apart from my clumsy handling of a cattle wagon. I apologised profusely and Kelvin hid any frustration really well. Oops!
I also took my TTA wagons for Kelvin to weather. One is going to be lightly weathered and one is to receive a medium level of weathering. I cannot wait to see what Kelvin does. I’m sure it will be brilliant. I also took one of my Polybulk wagons which received some good feedback from those that saw it. Sadly it wasn’t really appropriate to Sefton Yard!
Here are some pictures from our day!
