Shipley 2012

Posted by Tony Simms , in General 10 September 2012 · 835 views

A most enjoyable weekend in the wilds of West Yorkshire. Shipley is a lovely little show, a good handful of excellent layouts and a satisfying range of traders. Topped off with a Chilli chez Sissling on Friday and a Curry with Ed, Sue, Mick and Yvonne on Saturday night, we really did have a good time. A few pics (on camera phone; bit duff, sorry), with some video to follow:

This was the first weekend that the D49 really worked. Still needs a bit more weight and some extra springing on the pony truck.

The start of the new (disused) platform is evident.

Looking very good and great progress since I last saw it well done
Excellent Tony,

That first shot is a beauty...who needs a train when the scenics are that good.

Structural naan bread looks equally as good :)

Seconded on the scenery and nan! You know it's good food when it is bigger than the face of the person eating it.

Thanks for the nice comments guys (and for the likes!). After a couple of fairly major shows, I'm more comfortable with the layout and its operation. I'll now be looking to expand the motive power and stock as well as completing the scenics.
