September 2023 Meeting

Sunday 10 September 2023
Falconwood Community Centre

This was one of our informal quarterly meetings where our members showed off their latest Meccano creations.

At around 2:30pm 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!

At around 3:30pm Brian Leach gave a talk on electric cars.

The Railway Anniversary Models Secretary’s Challenge

This Challenge celebrated a couple of railway anniversaries:

  • In January 1863 the first underground railway in the world opened between Paddington and Farringdon. It’s now part of London Underground’s Metropolitan Line.
  • On 1st January 1923 the majority of railways in Britain were grouped into four companies, known as the ‘Big Four’.

The idea then was for our members to build a railway model of some type, ideally from either era mentioned above.
