I'll be there, God willing, with Tormouth Quay  -  as featured in Model Rail #246, April 2018.

 

Come along & say "hello".  If you want to play trains for a little while you're very welcome.  If you want to join "the team" for future exhibitions you'll be even more welcome!

You will also have the opportunity to shunt on my HS2. A well executed simple 2 point

DCC & Kadee shunting puzzle. One end where some rubbish is being burnt, we hope

no sparks get into the gunpowder van before the end of July !!

 

Why HS2 ? - HS1 turned out to suit left-handed drivers and I'm right-handed 'nuff said !

At this rate it's going to be a bit like an old school reunion!

Anyone else popping up out of the woodwork?

Shillingsford will be making a appearance here, once all the point rodding repairs are complete.

 

Should be a very good show!

Lane End a compact 009 layout is enough to tempt others to make up an interesting scenic layout in a small space.

All being well there should be 4 x 009 layouts to see.

Currently working in the sunshine cleaning tracks and checking electrics - A month to go, but at the speed I work that's

imminent !!

Photo's in the sun are so much better, wish I'd bothered to add the 5 trees that live on this board.

I'm looking forward to this, especially the new venue which should have far more room and free on-site parking.

Back to realizing just how much work can be involved in running a larger layout at an exhibition.

It's freight ..... HOW many wagons ? Currently sorted out 164 that are going, and hankering after

at least another 20 !!

Currently stacked in the shed :-

IMG_2739.jpg

 

Now to find and box all the buildings and nit-knacks, animals, builders merchants stock and .............

Just as well I still have 2 weeks !!

 

It'll be a good day after which I think I'll need a holiday !!
