I had a very pleasant outing to the Salisbury MRC 50th Anniversary Show today. I was on a very definite mission to see two layouts in particular, first up Redford Junction in TT scale, built by fellow 3mm Society member Paul Hopkins:

A real inspiration and an excellent demonstration of just what can be acheived in "The Modellers Scale".

RF 8030

The man himself.

 

Second up was Mr Muz's most excellent Fisherton Sarum - back on its' spiritual home turf - where a half hour or so was pleasantly spent watching Graham dealing with recalcitrant Bullieds.

Postscriptum

 

In the car on the way down I had been silently chanting the following mantra to myself: "don't buy anything, don't buy anything, don't buy anything, don't buy anything".

 

But as things go, what with it being such a lovely bright sunny morning and having got into the spirit of all things Railway - when the bargain opportunity of four 00 LMS wagons for the price of three presented itself - well, it would have been churlish not to...

 

(sigh) I don't even have any track to run them on! It just remains to be seen whether if in the view of the Domestic Authorities they can be entered under the "sound investment" heading, rather than "oh god, not more toys". :sungum:
