November – We had a stand at the Midland Model Engineering Exhibition near Leamington Spa. We were well represented with a model of ‘Ptarmigan’. In addition to various LNWR photographs there were a selection of views showing progress. Many positive comments relating to this venture were received, and ‘fliers’ in respect of the project were freely distributed.
September L&NWRS Newsletter – At the conclusion of our AGM on 6th June an interesting presentation was given by Paul Hibberd regarding the progress of the ‘George V New Build’, and valuable discussion took place relating to various aspects of the construction techniques and the challenges presented.
March L&NWRS Newsletter – The Society is continuing its close association with the ‘New Build George V Group’ and it is rewarding to know that quite a few members support the venture in a number of ways. The nameplate ‘Prince George’ together with completed parts of the locomotive were exhibited at the Alexandra Palace Model railway Exhibition; and the ‘George V Group’ had a slot the following Monday on the BBC1 ‘One Show’ and a mention on both Radio 2 and 4. This is also good news for our Society as it brings our ‘aims and objects’ to the attention of a wider audience.
