A last minute addition to the layout list. Hendricksville - an On30 layout will be joining the show.

 

That makes 13 different scale/gauge combinations at the exhibition.

Adrian

Can't make it down to Uckfield, but seeing that Messrs Harcourt and Bradgate are both displaying layouts, please pass on regards.

Fond memories of the early years of the club in the mid-1970s.

Back from the Uckfield show with our 009 layout Wisteria Collop. A fabulous show, with a great range of excellent layouts. We were very well looked after by the Uckfield Club.

 

Rachael has some layout photos that I will post later, for now you will have to make to with this one....

 

Thank you Adrian and the team for a very enjoyable weekend.

It was good to see you there and have a good natter, should have introduced myself as a fellow RMWebber when I was doing duty rounds and checking in on exhibitors. Did Rachael manage to stay awake on the journey home????

Just wanted to say thanks to Adrian and the Uckfield team for the hospitality and spoiling us this weekend - a great show and I really enjoyed to exhibit there. A cooked meal both days and the banoffee pie deserves its own thread on here ;)

Nice to meet some fellow RMWebbers (you know who you are!) and a big thanks to Alan and Maggie to let me have a quick operate on Oldshaw - Lovely to meet and speak with you both too.

Congratulations are also due to Rolvenden for winning best layout in show.

Received some nice comments on my Kyle layout (made it into Uckfield news I was told by a viewer on Sunday) and apart from a minor electrical fault it performed fairly reliably - 27 minutes after the show finished we were on the road back to London.

A few pics of my favourite layout there Oldshaw:

Rachael did manage to stay awake, just. But it was a long trip home after a disagreement with a satnav...!  I got into my house at 10.30pm 

 

Tired but happy  :)
