Haven't seen anything on here so here goes.

 

We're off there for the weekend with our layout Villefranch le Chapelle.

Bring fans, you'll need them! I don't envy those stuck in the hall all weekend, I'll be paying a visit tomorrow morning.

I'll be there, running the club sales stand which will be equipped with a fan. You can wish me a happy 70th birthday as well. The Tesco's at Pitsea has some fans in stock if your interested, £15 for a compact one and £35 for a pedestal mounted one.

Looking forward to this. I didn't realise Templefield was here, one of my faves and I'm looking forward to seeing Cusworths Yard again.

Fan reserved in argos for collection tomorrow morning! ;-)

Thanks steve, looking forward to what looks like another good essex show. There were a few 'worrying warps' as i left tonight but hey, adds to the realism.

See you all tomorrow.

I went to this show for the first time last year and was most impressed. I think the weather will stop me going again this year however, sorry.

Went along this morning and a mixed bag of layouts and trade as usual. The main hall was like a sauna at 10 AM, the smaller hall/refreshments area much cooler. 

 

How the traders will cope over 2 days I dread to think. I'd had enough after an hour.

 

The "0" gauge layout in the smaller hall was excellent.

The main hall was like a sauna during Friday set-up, all day Saturday and all day Sunday.
