Model Steam Trains on view at Redditch Kingfisher

Model Engine

On 3 February The Rotary Club of Redditch Kingfisher invited  Bill Carmen to talk on "Tales of a Steam Model Railway Enthusiast". Bill spoke of his lifetime hobby of building model railways and in particular the construction of the steam engines, everyone imaculatly constructed by his fair hand. We were not allowed to touch in case we dropped one which then would have to undergo a two year rebuild at great cost. The goods vans were also all constructed by hand. Amazing how much detail there was - down to the rivets on the engines. A great evening.
