Kyle be back...

Evening all,

 

Quick update to say Kyle appeared at the Wycrail one day show yesterday.

 

As always, a very nice show and very friendly and helpful exhibition team. 
 

Good to see some familiar faces for a catch up and also meet some new peeps. Received some very nice comments and overall the layout performed well.

 

I really do need to sit down and work my way through the list of small things such as replacing knuckle couplings on coaches, corridor connections, checking all DG couplings etc. You would have thought with all the rainy days here in UK this would have been addressed :D

 

Show closed at 5:00pm, packed and ready to roll at 5:40pm, stopped for a well deserved quick pint of Doombar at the Squirrel Inn, then home by 7:05pm. 

 

The next outings booked for the layout are the SWAG 2020 meet in April followed by Railex in May 2020 so Kyle will be back.

 

Meantime, a few pictures from the layout yesterday - the two 37’s sounded delightful together...:nyam:

 

Pete

The layout looks very good in those pics Pete. That fence is very effective. Amazing what you have managed to squeeze into a limited depth and yet it doesn't seem too "busy".

Admit it, it has nothing do with the weather. It's because such things are BORING. :D

Thanks - it’s never been called a diorama before though! Thought definition of those was that they are static?

 

Yes the harbour wall is built from plasticard and then small details such as brass ladders, tyres from dinky cars etc. have been added...

Thanks also Mikkel - I think the depth is 145mm (driven by the original two halves fitting in an A4 boxfile)

 

Oh go on then...yep, boring and dull mundane tasks...but they will get done for next outings!...
