Geoff,

What a great selection of layouts! One or two that I have wanted to see for sometime, so looking forward to seeing those, plus a couple I've seen before, but worth seeing again!

'Never been able to make it to Trainwest, it usually clashes with work related events, but next year is looking more promising and with a line up like this, it looks to be well worth the trek.

To add to the Cornish connection provided by DITD Kim and I will be there with my good friend John Greenwood and his beautiful 2FS model of Wenfordbridge, complete with the famous working gantry crane and all three Beattie Well tanks.
Geoff has put together another cracking lineup - he really is starting to get the hang of this exhibition lark!! ;)

I am now starting to think about which layouts have RMweb connections and thereby qualify to be included in the RMweb award voting this year. Diesels in the Duchy and Warren Lane have threads on here so that's two. I suppose I have to put Gladstone Road in because I worked on it. Engine Wood is another thanks to Captain Kernow.

Are there any more candidates?

The large brass plaque is worth having to, it's no lightweight and I think it's about a 6" x 5" rectangle.
If you win one and you don't like it (impossible) it would be a good source of 'G' scale (or larger) loco frames... :nono:

Now I know what happened to it!

We have eight candidates so far - there must be more. Only two are in the defnite no category which leaves 17 undecided.
