Does anyone recognise or remember that name? Mr Eagles was involved with The Model Railway Club in the 50s, I believe, and probably thereafter. What became of him? I'm asking, because I was involved in the disposal of the estate of a Norman Eagles who died possibly twenty years ago (perhaps less), and, at the time of his death, was living near Colchester. The same gentleman, perhaps? The Norman Eagles with whom I was involved certainly had a railway modelling interest.
The thought has arisen purely because I'm reading Jack Ray's 'Lifetime' book at the moment, and Norman Eagles is mentioned. Anyone with even a passing interest in the history of railway modelling, particularly 7mm, in the UK is recommended to read Jack Ray's book. Absolutely fascinating. Is Jack Ray still alive? He would be a fair age by now.
