    • The 6th Chris Kedgeley Memorial Skills Day
      By NorthHighlander,
         An excellent day. I was invited late to attend as a demonstrator and I didn’t get much chance to look around which is a very positive thing. I took along one board from Tregaron Upper plus the fiddle yard. The TU board is 41 years old and at the end of the day I ran the first loco on it EVER! Thanks to Jim’s Summers, Mackenzie and Pairman and Richard Chown for helping me. Got home at midnight 50 and crashed out on Sunday!
    • Model Rail Scotland 2019
      By cessfordalan,
         I cannot comment on the Glasgow show as I do not fly to Glasgow until Thursday morning, but If it is anything like the last one it should be great. Living as I do, through choice;is  in the Western Isles it is also a chance to mingle with a friendly like minded crowd and do some serious modelling shopping as the nearest model shop is a two and a half hour ferry crossing plus a sixty mile coach journey in each direction, so a fabulous weekend is planned

    • Monmouth Model Railway show
      By Phil Bullock,
         A very friendly show - usually try to get to this one. Some excellent layouts and wider modelling interest too - a couple of local traders to support and an excellent book sale stall at which I picked up a couple of gems. All in all well worth a few hours on a Sunday
