And plenty of mint sauce in the upstairs cafe - where the pies, pasties and peas were excellent.

 

For all those not of a Northern disposition, pie, mushy peas and mint sauce is a local delicacy, enhanced only by the addition of pickled onions.  Add a couple of pints of good Yorkshire beer beforehand for the full gourmet experience to be enjoyed, not only by yourself, but by those around you as well.

I think you went home with more beer than you did modelling stuff. :drinks:

Can I just add to the positive feedback. 

 

I consider Wakefield to be one of the must see shows and have been a regular visitor for around 15 years now and  thought the standard and mix of layouts this year was by far one of the best yet.

 

We visited on Friday night and even the trek up the M1 went without a hitch.

 

All in all a fine evening was had and the rest of the weekend was then free to indulge Mrs SM42's various wishlist items.  

 

​Well done and thank you to the exhibition team. 

 

​See you next year.

 

​Andy

I thoroughly enjoyed the show, as I always do. The highlight of the year for me, along with Mansfield show. :)

 

It was definitely eye opening operating a DC layout for the first time. :)

Thank you, the challenge is of course maintaining the standard but what is a good challenge. It’s pleasing when inviting layouts to Wakefield it is often a show they want to do. Will be working hard over the next year to see if we can receive similar positive comments and look forward to seeing you again next year

Well, I'm available for next year too if you have a 4' space you need to fill. I'm working on a HO inglenook to get me back up and running so I can play trains whilst I build Piedmont Blues for the 2019 show. :)
