The Guild is always interested in preventing good Meccano going to waste. If you have any Meccano to re-cycle, please contact the Secretary or a member at one of our events.

Roger Marsh’s Models

Roger, who died recently  after a short  illness from which he was expected to recover, was a very active member of the Guild and brought  an ever changing selection  of models to most of the Guild’s local events. Many of his models, particularly  those made from  Plastic Meccano were of his own design but other were challenging ones designed by others.

Although  quite seriously disabled,  he got about as well as most fully able people, even cycling fairly long distances in search of Meccano in charity shops.

He will be particularly remembered for his cheerfully interaction with visitors, both young and old, to our events.

He lived alone in his house in Flixton where he was caught unawares, up a ladder by a Google cameraman.

A selection of pictures of his models, taken by various photographers, appears below.

Some were taken after they had been collected following Roger’s death.

They were taken in the Chairman’s  garage by the Treasurer. Not much information was available about them.
