Any RMWebbers popping along to this one? I've missed the last two due to work but fully intend going this year, especially as both East Lynn and Hoath Hill Halt are in attendance.

EDIT - having now read the external link it seems that I can't read a map and was therefore mistaken about the lackage of buses. One less battle with the M25!

Hoath Hill Halt
Copenhagen Fields - ELF was an excellent opportunity to have a good long close look at The Model Railway Club's masterpiece without the five deep crowds which are usually to be found in front of it.

A carefully chosen set of traders was complemented by a catholic choice of layouts. It was good to see Hadley Green again after, I understand, three years off the circuit and the latest bit of Copenhagen Fields was new to me. Burkitt has done an excellent job in capturing the essence of the layouts with his camera.
Above all it was good to see the venue well filled for most of the day. Attendance two years ago was sparse to say the least but the organisers have persisted and I'm glad they did.

No real favourites at the show as they were all good in their own little ways . I'd not seen East Lynn before, so it was a pleasure to view it at last.
