My annual reminder and invitation to Model Engineers' Day at the Forncett Industrial Steam Museum (**LINK**). This year's 'Do' will be our 27th and is now near enough for the organiser to start to feel a mix of panic and excited anticipation!

You are invited to join us in South Norfolk on Sunday 6th October, whether as exhibitor or just visitor. We usually have the pleasure of the company of several members of this forum, so it's a good social occasion as well as a chance to see what others have been up to.

'Table Top' models mainly inside the museum and a rally for miniature road steam outside, including a run (optional) for a mile up the road to the Norfolk Tank Museum.

I'll be pleased to send you full details and entry forms if you give me an e-mail address.

Hope to see you in October.

I'd love to come again Bill but will be away in France this year.

It's a wonderful experience at Forncett and I shall miss missing it (if you see what I mean).

All the best for an excellent day.

Brian, sorry you'll be away. I was looking forward to seeing progress with your amazing Burrell-Boydell. How is it coming along? Any recent pictures?

Have a good holiday.


P.S. Who will fill Brian's place on the display tables?

Only four weeks till Model Engineers' Day at the Forncett Industrial Steam Museum. An excellent range of models and miniature road locos is booked in.

The 6th October is also the National Traction Engine Trust's 'Steam It Sunday'. We shall be doing our bit to support them with the run for miniatures to the Norfolk Tank Museum, just over a mile away.

Come and join us and see - amongst other things - some of the workmanship you have read about here.

Best wishes,

17 miniature road locos have entered, as well as all the indoor models.

Come and join us.
