Two Models made by Visitors
The Hornby Gauge O Princess Elizabeth Locomotive 85th. Anniversary Exhibition.
This was held in Old Christ Church, Waterloo, Crosby. A large number of these locomotives appeared as well as some similar ones from other manufacturers. They are well remembered by some of the members because an advertisement for them was on the back of the first Meccano Manuals that they came across. They cost £5/5/0 when a Meccano no. 10 was £12/15/0 , a No. 9 £6/5/0 and the unavailable OO gauge Duchess of Atholl £2/5/0. The large radius track was very expensive so that many did not get to run often.
The church was not crowded but there were some very interested visitors particularly for David Pickup’s Meccano Princess Elizabeth.
Pictures of some of our models are shown below.
The Blocksetter often found on the front of the manuals was also there but not photographed.
