September 2014 Meeting
Saturday 6 September 2014
Eltham United Reformed Church
This was one of our informal quarterly meetings where our members showed off their latest Meccano creations.
At around 2:00pm we had a short committee meeting, followed by the Model Tour in which members were invited to give a short talk about their models — in particular their entries for the Secretary’s Challenge!
The Year of the Bus Secretary’s Challenge
This Challenge was timed to tie in with the London Transport Year of the Bus 2014. It was 60 years since the creation of the iconic Routemaster (it was September 1954 when the first prototype was delivered), 75 years since the launch of the RT-Type bus and 100 years since the world’s first mass-produced motor bus, the B-Type ‘Battle Bus’ that carried soldiers to the frontline during the First World War.
