A selection of photos from the 2016 Kidderminster open day.
Attended this event with two of Philip Millard's recently
donated locomotives - both marvellous Webb compounds. They were very well received - we must
use them at exhibitions, people would be drawn straight to the stand ! As an event it was
excellent with a good selection of models, demonstrations/displays, trade stands and talks.
In many ways the event represents the varied interests of the members. There was the best of
research and modelling with all their overlap in a wonderful setting. Perhaps most important
was the friendly relaxed atmosphere where people were serious about the subject but were
there because they enjoyed sharing their knowledge and experiences - judge for yourselves
with these photos.
An interesting mix of visitors - from the society, non-members interested in the LNWR, as well as families 'dropping in'. Special thanks and a well done to Ted Talbot for organising it again this year.
The eagled eye'd amongst you will have noticed the text above hasn't changed. Was the day any different - apart from extra talks, variation in stands/displays and more visitors - none of which alters the text. I did spend more money.
This years photographs and captions were kindly supplied by Tony Gillam. If you wish to comment on any of them, please do so on the forum.
