Hi Ian,

I must apologize again for not being there. I had arrangements made already to crew at Aberdour regatta on Saturday.However by the time of the next one, all the summer distractions should be past.

Yes, a meeting this Saturday, I've been buying a few analog Loco's, (late 50's V200's) so could give them a run.

Then there's my new 1935 to 1939 "16 sleeper" track" to have a look at, and I'm running My Insider BR39 and wagon Set.

And then........Smile

Ian,

Sounds like great fun. So its golden oldies from the early analog years (as a theme)?????

Ian,

I hope you have room for two more (Brenden and I).......................we hope to be with you around 11am.

In keeping with your theme of Golden Oldies I am bringing a box of '50's and '60's locos to run (which includes two V200) as well as an old railcar. I will also bring my new digital croc, and the Kof and the Blue Enzian carriage set. Just in case we get bored.

See you tomorrow.

Ian,

Yes, it was a choice of cutting the three foot grass at the old house or coming up to Scotland to play with lots of lovely Marklin......................hard choice I have to say.

I thought you would be up nice and early polishing those Marklin locos.

Just getting into the car, see you soon !!!!

Hi Ian,

The sun is indeed shining from a beautiful blue sky. Enjoy your day of train running and my regards to everyone else there. I am afraid my train watching today will be of a distant view of Scotrail DMUs running along the shore between Aberdour and Burntisland. At least it will be a good day for sailing.

It was also great to see both Alan and Mike again and thanks to Alan for the special Sunday engineering shift servicing a few old of mine and Mike's.

Thanks Ian, I have to say that the journey back was slightly more eventful than coming up, as I got an opportunity to view a Strathclyde police car up close and personal........got nicked for doing 88mph. I would not have minded but I was quite literally at that point the only car on the road and so there was nowhere to hide.....Angry Angry Angry

Whilst in the backseat I was passed by Mike who was only doing 60mph as he was running in the new car..............................and so the moral of the tale is that it does not pay to drive too fast. LOL LOL LOL

Anyway Brenden is delighted to have tired out the dogs, I have to be honest he did not do much on Sunday either............

Thanks once again for a great day,

All the best

Ian,

That's life, I am not going to moan about it, after all I was speeding so take the medicine and get on with it.

Yes on the points and fine, luckily I only have 3 points at present. To be honest they seemed more concerned that I pay the fine rather than the points.

and it happend to be the same day the Marklin shipment arrived so Dion and his wife had to do the job
which he enjoyed as he thinks its christmas !!!!BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin as i normally do it
but my back is better than its been for ages , and hospital guy said they have had a lot of folks in with backs
out of wack and they think the earthquakes and aftershocks have done it, as the motion is from below and people
hold themselves when the quakes come so fun all around
well i guess you must be just about to start building the new layout frame work which will be great
we have onother club night next friday 24th and we had 20 guys at last months and one guy donated two mobile station 2

Hi bryan,

Thanks for keeping in touch. ThumpUp

You had 20 guys at a club meeting, not much chance of that here, don't think there's 20 members in the UK.....maybe just. Smile

There's still a bit to do before starting the new framework, but it will be started before Xmas.

Will let you know how our next club meeting goes.

Yesterday, there was a "Baby Shower" held at our place, so I had to make myself scarce in the afternoon, so I had my own Club Meeting. Smile

Hi Glenn, sadly, my wife has terrible fear of boats even though she was born and raised on the island of Mombasa of the coast of Kenya. Instead, we went back to the same hotel as we did last year and again it was fabulous. It was the Montana Pine Resort and is up in the mountains above Olu Deniz. the scenery is stunning. We can't wait to go again. See you and Brenden on the 29 September, Alan

Hi Ian,

I guess the UK BW club meeting is jointly organized with the DB museum in Koblenz-Germany ??
They held also a Festival coming weekend with a big loco parade.
The Motto is "100 Years of Diesel", with some lovely V200.

But I think the BW loco parade is just as spectacular !
Please don’t forget the pictures and video !
I already look forward to the vids and pics.

Ian, I really wish I could also attend the UK Stammtisch tomorrow, and I checked what it will cost: airline ticket, hotel for 1 day, rental car .... About € 600 - 700 total.
And as you know I'm also saving up money for a Faller AMS layout.

I wish you and your visitors lots of fun tomorrow !!

Hi Ian,

Are you familiar with the German word “Stammtisch“ ??
I notice that it is increasingly used outside Germany as well, specifically in the MRR scene.
It is not easily translated into English.,
Literally speaking, the word Stammtisch is a table in a restaurant which is reserved for the same guests at the same time or day every week.
It means something like regular get together meetings for specific interest groups, not commercial organized, with togetherness, intimacy and shared interests in the foreground.

In Germany MMR Stammtische are very popular.
I really like watching photo and video reports of these Stammtische, one can see many people have fun with trains.

Your regular Meetings at BW are a real true Stammtisch !
Sometime in the near future I will be there too.

Just a quick note to say thank you very much to Jane and yourself for yet another great gathering at Baden-Wurttemberg. Jane once again did us proud with the excellent spread, and as always the train operations in the 'shed' were impeccable.

Thanks fore another great day.

I really enjoy our UK get togethers, but distance and geographical location means that we are all still not able to meet at these meetings.

I would like to make a proposal to our Marklin UK Club members that we look to do something a little more adventurous next year (a thus allow ourselves a little more planning time) something that will allow us all to meet up, and maybe also meet some European Forum friends as well.

As we know there is Eurospoor next week and also an event at Cologne in November, both events are annual.

It looks to me like Eurospoor is possibly the better of the two events and there will be plenty of Marklin to fill our boots.

My proposal is to gauge Marklin Club UK interest in a team outing to Eurospoor next year - 2013, and hopefully we can encourage some of our European Forum friends to join us at the show and maybe we can organise a dinner and drinks one evening so we can chat and get to meet face to face. This forum has a few members in the Nederlands who I am sure would be able to join.

So please can we see if there is any interest for this trip.

Hi Glenn

Sounds a good idea to me.BigGrin I'm sure there can be an amalgamation of members travelling from the UK to cut down travel costs etc.

With virtually a year to plan, it shouldn't be too difficult to gauge interest and book a hotel and travel.ThumpUp

I will certainly attend the Eurospoor meeting.

We don't have a big house, but if necessary a few members can stay / sleep at our place, we live in Den Haag (The Hague), about 45 kilometers away from Eurospoor, 35 minutes by train / car.

Mike,

My thoughts exactly. I was also thinking that easyJet fly to Schiphol from several destinations in the UK, as well as Flybe. So I was thinking if we could get to Schiphol we could hire a people carrier and share the cost. Or share car and ferry. I am open to thoughts.

I can confirm that there will be Brenden and I for the list.

Thanks to Marco for his very kind offer.

So who else will join us, I hope we can attract other Forum members to join us, from other EU countries, there are plenty of active members in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Portugal, France and Turkey.

Gents,

Just in case anyone is interested there is a company in the UK, who does coach tours to Eurospoor;

Contact:
Parkway Tours
John Elver
Phone 0117 969 3119
or 07846868101
E-mail John Elver of: Parkway Tours

Flightwise just for consideration;

KLM are offering flights for next year (September 2013 as you can only book 11 months in advance) return from Manchester to Schiphol for £76 if you book now, and from Edinburgh or Birmingham for £79.

Currently you cannot book easyJet beyond 8 September 2013, but they are currently no cheaper than KLM.

Living in Cheshire, I always travel to Eurospoor on the P&O car ferry from Hull to Rotterdam. This is an over-night crossing, so is not particularly cheap, but is good quality and there's a Langan's Brasserie on board for those who enjoy a good dinner. There's also a buffet restaurant, which is less expensive, and a coffee shop.

Arrival time in Rotterdam is 8am, so it's easy to get to Utrecht in time for Eurospoor opening. Eurospoor is on for three days, Friday-Sunday, so I travel over on Thursday night and spend Friday and Sunday at the show, and usually do some sight-seeing on the Saturday. Usually my wife comes with me, and we make a little holiday out of it, as there is good shopping and good restaurants in Utrecht, but this year I am going with one of my US Märklin friends, and then travelling into Germany to visit my Märklin dealer and do some other Märklin-related errands.

Previously I have always stayed at the NH Hotel at Jaarbeurs, just across the road from Eurospoor, but this year they have closed down their secure car park (which is important for me) so they have lost my business, and we are staying at the Ibis which is also within walking distance of the show.

If you are a keen Märklin collector, the market section of Eurospoor is so large it can take a whole day to look at every vendor. The stall frontage is allegedly over a kilometre in total length. There's a mixture of new, secondhand, and serious high-price rarities, so something for everyone.

Hi Glenn and Nigel

I fancy the idea of the flight and sharing a people carrier.

I used to like the Hull - Rotterdam ferry but unfortunately it has been taken over by the rowdy crowd and if you get a cabin in the middle of the boat you get the noise of the caberet all night.

I use Ibis all the time in Europe and they are good valueBigGrin

Who is going to say yes to the flights as if we don't agree then a people carrier is not so attractive?
