Nick the first photograph looks like your layout Ashbourne Midland. Will it be appearing as I don't see it on the list?

Sounds like a great show. I love building, operating and watching small layouts.
Date in the diary.

Yes it is my Ashbourne layout, but, no, it won't be at the show as I have sold it!

 

All the layouts in the photo are mine, some, like Ashbourne, moved on to new pastures. It's unlikely my layouts will feature as anybody who has tried to manage a show and run a layout will know, it is nigh on impossible!

Here's a photo of my small O Scale layout, Lyddlow Goods, taken by Nick at the Cradley Heath Show back around October.

 

Lyddlow1.jpg

 

I had quite a few comments from viewers then along the lines of "Far too simple & boring for me", which I countered (very politely ;) ) by explaining what the real ideas behind it were - to show that O Scale doesn't have to take up lots of space, to provide a small layout to while away half-an-hour or so of gentle shunting in a large scale, and also the fact that there is so much more to the hobby than just running trains; wasting time on RMweb erm, I mean research, kitbuilding, painting, weathering, opening R-T-R boxes, etc etc...  :good: :jester:

 

Edit: the photo was taken in the "silly half hour" at the end of the Show, which is why it was chock-a-block with wagons!!

Having run a show and exhibited each time I can only agree.
