3mm West Fest – Verwood
Had a brilliant day at Verwood , Dorset yesterday organised by the Dorset area group of the 3mm Society.
There was cake
Somehow Peter Bossom managed to get by the serving hatch for the refreshments with his layout Whatlington!
Then we had Andrew Shillitos Wantage
Earlier I mentioned we would comeback to Peter Bossom and his layout. A couple of his locos, firstly an 08 diesel shunter Triang body on 14.2 chassis – who says you cannot recycle 50+ year old models!
Another old kit made by Peter is a BEC Q1 known by many as the ugly duckling designed by O V Bullied for the Southern Railway during the war. Peter has made the kit up for 14.2 and even the mechanical lubricator works!
Well done to Nigel, Collin and Steve and members of the Dorset Group for arranging the day.
