Oxted debrief...

Evening peeps,

 

Back from the one day show at Oxted School today. Nice little show with a mix of layouts although as my youngest son couldn't attend today I didn't get to see much. Nice Spanish HO/009 layout San Maria Gandia.

 

Overall the layout behaved itself and as always a couple of little things for the 'to do' list prior to the next show (DG couplings and tweaking one of the turnouts)

 

The layout was primarily run with the 24/0 and 37/4 sound chipped locos and a 26 and 27. The 24/1 appeared to have a short but I am due to send it to Kevin at Coastal DCC to sound chip it, so thought best to leave it for its strip down. I receieved some nice comments with people intruiged by the sound and the coupling mechanism. I also received a couple of informal invites for shows next year which will be followed up.

 

Nice to talk to a few RMWebbers. Hope Mark (Portchullin) enjoys the U2 concert tonight (not jealous :no:)
and thanks to Nigel Ashton who held the fort allowing me to grab some lunch and have a quick nose around. Nigel grasped KoL operations within about 3 minutes flat :O

 

Show finished at 4:30pm and 25 minutes later I was packed and on the road, getting home by 6pm to a cold beer - Job done ;)

 

A couple of pics of the layout as didn't manage to grab any of the other exhibits.

Glad to be of service - the show was so local to me it seemed daft not to go. I too liked the 009 layout and actually got some useful info about CCTV board cameras off them. Other than that, a lot of roundy-roundy N gauge stuff predominated, so Kyle was the highlight.

Thanks Andy - the room we were in never got too crowded and stuffy which was a relief. The N gauge roundy roundy opposite me started to suffer from rail expansion due to the heat though...

Thanks Nigel - Next time bring your stock box and we can run a few interlopers amongst the BR Blue...;)
