10th Nov 2012 - Freemo meet, Broadclyst

Post by Gloriousnse » Mon Oct 22, 2012 8:32 pm

Not an NMRA meet (though NMRA folks are heavily involved from our own group and Western Union) - on the 10th Nov the RS Tower group is hosting a Freemo meet at Broadclyst, Devon, Just outside Exeter

We're working on lots of operations stuff at the moment, so you'll be able to come along and help us run the railroad, or just come and chat about freemo and modular stuff.

For more info follow the thread on the freemo forum:

Hi Martyn, it's 99% certain that I can join in, although I'm not sure if I can be there all day (I hope so).
In any case, I'm looking forward to join in the fun, being part of a crew or whatever is thrown (not literary hopefully) at me. :-)

Martyn - you were going to let me know what cars you want me to bring along (reefers, cement, acid) and how many, or are you sorted?

Looking foward to it.

Hi Brian - will do. From memory there was a pair of DRGW cement hoppers, the acid tank car and a couple of reefers...will sort you a list.

Hi Martyn,

Unfortunately clashes with Toworth and other events - wondering if you planning another one any time soon? (I think you may have mentioned it somewhere, but can't remember where - Yahoo or RMWeb possibly?!)

Thanks
John P

Hi John, yep unfortunate this one, it clashes with something at Bearwood also I think - yes we're planning to do this kind of thing regularly (a couple of times a year maybe) but no set dates as yet.

Ok - thanks Martyn; personally very keen to get along to one of these so will look out for future dates - might also be able to get a few of us from Seaboard Southern to pay a visit...

Okay, looks like I'll be there for at least part of the day, I am having to drop of (and pick up) my son to a birthday party first, but I will probably make it at about 10:30AM, reporting for duty :-)

see you all tomorrow.

It was a fun day today at the meet, here's a taster picture of our gathering, showing you the overview. Many others took pictures in between the operating sessions (or during during a crew change or pause) . We had a few electrical problems at the start, but all and all very enjoyable. Thanks go to the organisers for a fun meet.

Thanks to all who came, had fun and took part - we had a great day! I think there were a lot of pics taken so i'll try and get some online in the next couple of days. :)
