A small number of us model and home workshop engineers have been meeting regularly over the last year and as additional members have joined in we've reached the stage of formally establishing ourselves as the 'Cambrian Model Engineers'. All of our members are located in mid Wales, and that covers most of the Cambrian Mountains area. Members interests are just as widespread, covering all forms and scales of live steam, smaller gauge model rail, clockmaking, toolmaking and restoration, and all things engineering. We currently meet on a fortnightly basis and because of the geographical spread of our members we move the meeting place around, usually at member's homes, for general chat, 'bits and pieces' and anything else that comes up, plus - not to be forgotten - the essential tea/cake etc . Our chairman kindly lets us use his 5" gauge ground level track for 'steam ups', organised for the summer months, weather allowing.
We're always keen to hear from anyone interested in joining us so if you'd like further details do please send me a p.m. in the first instance, and I'll be happy to oblige.
Hello Robin, My son Piers and I met you at the Welshpool show on Saturday. I think you said there is a meeting on November 5 at Tregynon? Perhaps you could let me have the details. In case my email was illegible, I'll include it - email@example.com.
