The Chairman's Dribble
Newsletter January 2020
Well, hello everyone. We are not far away from the new year. Looking back over the past year, I do not think we have any thing to complain about, things have run pretty smoothly and jobs at the track have been completed in plenty of time, so let’s hope the same happens in the coming new year and we can make 2020 a good year. So, I hope everyone had a good Christmas. I wish you all a very Happy New year.
The Secretary's Report
2020! Where has the last 20 years gone?
Well first of all, I do not have a lot to report. Halloween run, even on two days, we could not make it happen because of the weather. No one wants to go to Alexander Palace, so this is off, from BDSME’s point of view. We have the dinner on the 12th to look forward to, otherwise it is pretty quite.
We have the crossing to complete and a couple of things to do on the pond and BDSME site will have been transformed into, what I hope you will all consider to be a Model Railway and Traction Engine site that you are proud to represent. February will be the start of the fifth year of the “vision”, so hope to see you all doing “ Your thing or things” in the future .
I hope you all had a super Christmas and I wish you all the very best in 2020.
Let us all go forward and make our track a site which people will come and say “ Wow” that is some railway track.
The Boating Pond
This project is nearly finished; you can see in the bottom picture why the wire netting was put round the pond, this really has stopped most of the leaves from ending up in the water. We have fitted two gates at the bottom end, these just need to be finished and painted with the posts being creosoted and this then should be a pleasure to sail or steam your boats on in the future.
