Hello all.

I don't know Andy, but there is a model railway club here in southern Britanny.

To be precise it's in Séné, just outside Vannes and includes several British members. That said,it is a French club and everything happens in French so one or two Brits who speak practically no French have given up.

We have two HO layouts plus a 7 1/4 gauge steam loco that we take to fetes and suchlike.

The club Web site is a bit out of date but it gives some idea of what we get up to.

OK - unlikely that he got a divorce then!  Can't remember what the Bantam engineering guy was called - I know he did his engineering apprenticeship in my home town and played football with my cousin.

Fitter, I think you have the wrong person.  The OP is asking for Andrew.  He is still in Brittany and celebrating his wedding anniversary on Tuesday.

At the time I met him at Pine Francais and subsequently at his home and workshop he was getting divorced- so maybe has gone back to the UK-he had a website called Bantam Engineering making parts for models- Haven't heard hide nor hair of him since 2010.
