'The difference between men and boys, are the price of their toys'...! Do I stay at OO Gauge or move on to 5inch ha-ha... great day I have to say.

The next time I go to Toronto, I will see if I can find any photos in my dad's albums of a show in North Wales in the 70's.  I'm fairly sure there are some prints.
