Today was our third Expo in a row. We did actually question whether they really wanted us again but were told that this one was the 55th Anniversary one so we could come and play again.
A good day was had by all. It was great to meet some with all of the folks at the show. Joint honours for going 'above and beyond the call' go to Steve for travelling all the
way from New Zealand and Chris who was late for the start of the show with some lame excuse about Chelford being at the end of a 36 hour journey from Brisbane.
Some photos from the day.
The view of the 12 inch to the foot scale train set outside the hotel this morning. I couldn't resist trying this shot although it didn't work too well.
I'm titling this one 'St Ruth by Night' because it's what the layout looks like overnight when at a show.
Some shots from around the show. It was pretty busy although I think it had quietened down a bit when I took these.
Finally my one and only proper model photo - Nigel Ashton's GWR mogul based on his Manor chassis with scratchbuilt upperworks and an RTR tender.
Chris also took a few photos while we were entrusted (ahem) with the operation of Ian Smith's 'Modbury' but he said something about needing sleep, so those will have to wait for another day.
Chris' edit after some sleep.. Some inappropriate goings on in South Devon.
