National 2½” Gauge Society Midlands Rally – 2nd August 2015

National 2½” Gauge Society Midlands Rally – 2nd August 2015 This rally has been a regular event in our calendar for many years; it has certainly been held every year since 1980 to my knowledge, and it had been going for quite a while before that. This year’s event was blessed with good weather and an excellent turnout of locos. Visitors were noted from as far away as Hull, Stockport, Gloucestershire, as well as many from the east and west Midlands counties and the more local places.

All the locos seemed to run better than ever this year, notably Steve Eaton’s V2 – definitely running at scale 100mph plus I reckon!

Thanks to Cath, Andrea and Betty for providing the refreshments, Chris for running the ground-level train service and Dave for organising running on the SM32 track.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the event, so its “same time, same place” again next year.
