VISIT BY EARLY MEMBER
Adrian M who was a member in the early days of the club, came along with his ex work colleague Richard to visit us (last Friday). See Club History & Liphook Station History Google+ pages for more info.
We have been advised that the late Ivan Smith’s “Southwark Bridge Models” has been sold to “Roxey Mouldings”owned by Dave Hammersley.
The SBM range of etchings covers a range of lesser known types of London & South Western Railway rolling stock.
It is likely that it will take a little time to effect the transfer and restocking, so not all of the range will be immediately available.
