It was a fine Saturday morning, the first day of June, when we set up ready for our Mamod Day. Elliot had recruited a local Mamod fan through the BGRA Facebook Page who ran a smart looking MSS engine and train.
Norman set up a brilliant display of static engines and classic Mamod road engines. His display attracted much attention from the public and many childhood memories were revived for people of a certain age.
On the track, we tried to run as many Mamods as possible even though some were in heavy disguise. Elliot had a sight glass blow that forced an early end to his Mamod running and we all ran other locos as the day passed.
It would have been nice to have a few more runners but it was still a good day and our visitors seemed to like it. Dave, Don and Lucy took the pictures.

Not a Mamod but still a welcome runner.

OK, not a Mamod but it does have a Mamod based power unit.
More like a Mamod but re-skinned and radio controlled.

It is Mamod Apple Green so it must be an Honorary Mamod.
