  1. I've been to the show several times and sometimes found the parking problem. I always enjoyed this show previously and hope to go this year. Nowadays I have a Blue Badge, is there any parking for those of us who cannot get about as well as most?
  2. Well that was a good one. Thanks very much to Steve and all who helped to make this an enjoyable show for exhibitors as well as the visitors.
  3. Burnham-on-Sea all packed up and I'm looking forward to the show. Will load the car at sparrow's f**t tomorrow as I don't like to leave a layout in a car overnight. See you tomorrow.
  4. Please note the layout "Burnham-on -Sea" is 2FS, 1920/30s. I must make the distinction as there is also an N gauge one 1950s on the show circuit. I would hate it if you went to see the "N" version and were disappointed.
  5. Beautiful running, good job done. I like your idea of a keeper plate, very simple. I think I'll copy this soon.

    A very mixed show with several scales and prototypes shown. Unfortunately Hook Basin had to cancel on Friday morning. Still a good show. Excellent refreshments, easy parking what more could you want? Unless you were expecting any OO stuff, there wasn't any! I enjoyed being a part of this show exhibiting Burnham.
  7. Yet again this show co-incised with one I'm exhibiting at! (Mendip 2019). I would really like to take in one of these excellent shows, most frustrating.

    Another layout "Burnham-on-Sea"2FS will attend. What a lot of scales/gauges!

    I've just returned from holiday so I'm sorry Tim V. for my late reply. I thought I'd put the dates in the form as required, obviously not! Thanks for picking that up.

  12. Thanks for these pics. You've enabled me to see ,in detail, some very good modelling that, as an exhibitor, I didn't get much chance to see. I was on the Midford layout, stood out a mile as English!
  13. As a member of the Small & Delightful Railway Group, although speaking privately, I don't think this day could possibly be taken as a successor to NGSW. NGSW was a large and excellent show, as a showcase for narrow gauge modelling it probably had no equal. The show at Compton Dundon was much smaller and encouraged discussions and gave visitors (and exhibitors) the opportunity to get behind layouts, perhaps to "have a go".
  14. I've just got back from here a very good show and to be recommended highly. A high standard of exhibits, especially San Maria Gandia and lots of peoples to chat to. Excellent sandwiches and cakes too, but unfortunately no bacon butties.
