CHAIRMAN'S CHATTER


Chairman's Chatter Home

May 09

At an impromptu meeting recently the members present agreed that the remaining £40 from Maurieís sale of coins (thanks to Sam for dealing) should be sent to Naomi House together with the £90 collected from members in lieu of sending Christmas Cards last December.

OO gauge Matters 

No real progress here although I have spotted running whenever possible. (Chairmanís note: perhaps plans should be drawn up and discussed by all interested parties for the rewire that I believe you wish to undertake. It is important to include all aspects of the task to include the ease of running, the ability to convert part to DCC if required, and the need to integrate the signals to make them show correct aspects without too much effort from the operator.)

EM gauge Matters 

At the meeting mentioned above we also dealt with a request to increase the budget for the EM layout. Those present agreed the increase of £150 unanimously. The increase was sought to cover cost of point motors and controllers. Progress continues with the fitting of the motors. The control panel was shown at the last Show and Tell meeting.

O gauge Matters 

During the last few weeks running has been the order of the day to test the new Enigma at Itchen Bottom and its links with Canal Junction and Abbotstone. Trials of a sequence to bring some order to the running were also included.

We now plan a period of titivation of Abbotstone and Itchen Bottom to improve running and the scenics ready for September.

Other Business 

The Summer Party is nearly upon us. We are very grateful to David and Janet for allowing us to use their home for this event.

The list of food requirements and offerings will make its way round very soon.
