L&B talk to Manchester Model Railway Society

Bob Barnard gave his talk "The Lynton & Barnstaple Railway - Then and Now" to about 20 members of Manchester Model Railway Society, at their Sale clubhouse on Friday 12 September.

Before the 7.30 pm start, cine film of the line in the final year of operation was shown. The talk itself included an extended section on L&B modelling, in view of the interests of the audience. During the tea break, recent video footage of Isaac operating with the heritage coaches was shown. The meeting ended at 10 pm, and several MMRS members purchased L&B Christmas cards. The Society kindly made a donation to L&B funds, and Bob gave a couple of recent L&B magazines to MMRS for the their library.

The next NW area group event will be a stand at the Southport Model Railway exhibition, on 8/9 November 2014. We would appreciate volunteers from the area to assist over the weekend. Anyone able to help should contact Bob Barnard.
