Visit Report: Huddersfield Railway Modellers

We were warmly welcomed by an enthusiastic group of railway modellers who put on a splendid display of their modelling skills with several operating layouts of 2mm, 4mm, 7mm and 16mm sections. LAE treasurer John Bentley brought along a couple of his own locomotives which were run on the layouts. The four different gauges offered something to interest all railway modellers and the Ffestiniog 16mm layout even featured steam powered locomotives.

LAE Vice-President Barrie Yates proposed a vote of thanks to our hosts and presented a ‘Hunslet’ nameplate for their collection. LAE council member Ian Blakeley, who is a design engineer at Hunslet Engine Company, kindly arranged the supply of the nameplate for the presentation.
