South Cheshire Model Engineering Society will be hosting the 2 1/2" Gauge society this Sunday 5th May. Who will be bringing along LBSC locomotive AYESHA this Locomotive is famous for the "Battle of the Boilers" held in 1922:- this battle raged between Henry Greenly, Curly Lawrence and others in the Model Engineering press for many months until they decided to settle the argument by holding and efficiency competition where Curly pitted the performance of AYESHA against other locomotives the result was a close run thing and was far from conclusive, so the controversy continued. AYESHA was at last years event and managed a sedate lap of our track which is remarkable for an 90 year old locomotive.
Visitors will be most welcome.
Our Track is Rear of Peacock Hotel, Crewe Road Nantwich Cw5 6NE www.southcheshiremes.com

So that's how model engineers settled their differences before there were internet forums!
Great videos, thanks for posting. Wonderful to see such an historic old girl still running, and all the others too.
