However, lots of things have happened, an exhibition, at Poole and the yearly jaunt to the 3mm meeting at West Byfleet where the winters projects are purchased or those needed bits found.
The most notable thing is this new LMS Brake Van. The wagon is in honour of Eric Bruton whose photos still grace the pages of Mixed Traffic.
The kit is produced by Cambrian for the 3mm Society and well moulded in grey plastic. Cursory examination show a few departures from other kits. Firstly the chassis is moulded with the side frames. This makes a rigid foundation from which to hang the step boards etc. Secondly the handrail holes are already started for you- no excuse for differing length handrails or some not in the right place. Really looking forward to building this one- watch this space.
