The Christmas meeting at Rusper Model Railway club is always special. Mainly for 2 reasons: different food and any era stock and locomotives.


We were able to run a 6 session and the weather being bright and fresh. Plenty of food was available, in so much as the normal sandwiches were put away for tea time or another day. Postman Chris was unfortunately not available on the day, so yours truly “volunteered” to sort out and deliver the Christmas cards.


The operating session went very well with only a couple of stops to catch up. An additional bonus of using 6 sheds is that we run freight trains with necessary shunting. I suspect that a crane shunt is used discreetly as well!


The locospotter had eaten too many of Gerard’s liquors so the scribbles were not legible the next day. Hopefully you can get a good idea of the stock used by the selection of photographs on this newsletter.


Overall, a very good session and enjoyed by all.


As this is being written before the festive day, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all members of Rusper Model Railway Club and their respective families.
