There were a few incidents, due to inattention by the fat controller, I managed to head on crash into one of Phil's locos. I hope Phil has pics as I was too distraught at the time, fortunately only a buffer beam came unglued.

In the dark Friday evening I managed to send a Mallet and five coaches at full tilt into the engine shed - no damage though!

Dexter also had a go at redesigning one of my sidings ending up with a 300mm extension - not bad!

Sadly Laurent had to go at 5 to catch the train back to Paris; Phil had kindly agreed to drop him off en-route so we lost Phil, Laurent, Pierre, Dorothy and Audrey leaving us with just the Calvert contingent. I shan't go into much detail about the ensuing activities, just a few of which were train related, suffice to say that the party went on into the early hours and several wine boxes were relieved of their contents!

Mikey was sadly missed due to his music gig commitments, but can I thank all that were able to come for making it such a great day!

It looks as though a great time was had by all despite the weather, which in the UK would refer to rain but out here is the opposite

I cannot take the credit of it, I bought it from england, second hand.

Don't know who built it, bought from a shop, I agree it's really good, spend a long time looking at all the catalogue to see if it was a LGB or a conversion, before buying it.
