Item 50 Years of the NLSME
In 1950 the North London Society of Model Engineers was six years old and was a thriving society that had gained recognition outside the region in which it was situated. The membership, although smaller than today, had grown significantly over the years and stood at over 150. Like all democratic organisations things did not always move quickly but the News Sheet of the period reflected a solid club with a friendly atmosphere although one not without its troubles in fact much as it is today.

Item The Britannias - The other side of the coin
I read with interest the article in the May news sheet regarding the Britannia Class locomotives. Whilst I am not in a position to dispute any the assertions concerning experiences on the Western Region, I would like to look at the 'other side of the coin' and acknowledge their positive attributes.
