Similar situation to last year regarding signalling information and queries - if you can let me have any details, plans etc in advance (by pm) it might be simpler to deal with your questions 'on the day' as I'll have had a chance for research (if it's needed).

'fraid I was scared off by the Taunton mob - once bitten, ya know :stinker:

Much though I'd love to join you I am safely back down under and unlikely to be making another trip to home shores so soon. On the other hand the portfolio of my layout pics is still over there and could be made available if transport were available from and back to Sussex.

There will be plenty of steak at the pub on Friday night if the Wirral lot aren't going to be there...

Looking forward to it, had a great day last year.

Great news, Andy - looks like this will be a splendid day, and I'm really looking forward to the event - and I won't bring the new puppy - she can stay home with 30747.the

Are the SWAG contingent bringing the pasties, or do we need to source our own?

Also I see that there is a bar this year - so this could be Grand Day Out of the year.

Regards
Stewart

You know it makes sense Mickey. ;)

Stafford is the nearest station (1.25 miles away), until I update directions etc they'll be the same as last year's http://www.rmweb.co....e-up-announced/

Last year we did baked taters, chilli / other fillings and salad to fend off the pasties. If the weather forecast* is rock solid I may do a barbecue.

Exhibitors will be able to have the now traditional oatcakes (without PhilH giving me earache this year ;) ).

Hopefully I will have just taken delivery of my new Landy, so a running in turn on the 7th July will be needed.

Fortunately for you lot I'll have to announce I won't be attending, due to work commitments (holiday season at all... :() That means there's plenty of room to turn your back, enough pasties for all of you and no nasty surprises by a foreign wiseguy askin'bout foreign stuff ;)

Enjoy guys! (and gals, I'm sure several of your missusus will be present too :P)

Andy's just confirmed there's room for me to bring Fourgig East in whatever form it is in by then - so come along and poke fun at my trackbuilding, O gauge Scalescenes buildings and packing crate ply baseboards :lol:

Typical - I'm at the Hartlepool show that weekend :threaten:

Well, I managed to double-book my diary too, Dave, just didn't think to check, but having said that, whilst I regret not being able to go to the Members Day, I'm really looking forward to Hartlepool. It does look like a good line-up there, too.

Having Failed to Show for all the previous Members Days I think I will have to ditch the trip up to Hartlepools and make my best endeavours to find my was south and west to Stafford...


Well, we'll miss you, guys, but don't forget that Hartlepool is a two-day show, so anyone with sufficient time/Brownie Points could always come on the Sunday?... :sungum:

That's exactly what I did, that's why Felton Lane is on the layouts list, but I'd promised Andy first.

My intention is (depending on what time I wake up) to get unloaded on Sunday morning and nip up to see you all. :good:

As part of my homework, I've checked out the local bus routes and times from the station to the end of the road leading to the venue, and there's two routes - they are the 74 and the 825 both operated by Arriva. 74 is hourly at xx.40 and 825 is half hourly at xx.52 and xx.22, so the nearest bus to get you there for the start time is the 09.52 service 825. It appears to be about 500 metres from the bus stop to the venue.

Return services get to the station again at xx.45 and xx.15 (825) and xx.25 (74).

There's also a no 2 (not from the station) which stops outside the venue, but not at the station, it appears to be quite sporadic (hourly) and also appears to die off in the early afternoon, so is probably a non-starter for most visitors.

Hope this helps
Stewart

Just to say that Ravensclyffe doesn't look like it is shown in the picture on Andy's posting anymore, it's moved on a very long way from that I'm glad to say.
Very much looking forward to bringing it out in public again.
See http://www.rmweb.co....8-ravensclyffe/ for more on the layout.
