  1. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, but I have a question, was Mad About Trains present at the show this year?
  2. the KX shop is now a nandos chicken emporium.... they call this progress.......
  3. Looks like its time to bolt them down chaps, there honestly is nothing worse than a thief, we had one in our club who got caught red handed, was immediately ejected from the the event and then the club despite protests of innocent mistake after admitting infront of 6 witnesses his "mistake" no second chances given, he was lucky the trader declined to press charges. it really is the worst. I hate them If I find out who did it I would personally chop their hands off Saudi style. I will be keeping a good eye out for them though I wonder if there pop up at scaleforum bring n buy... regards trev

  5. On behalf of the Shoeburyness Model Railway Club, I would like to apologize for the utter failure of the venue to supply and form of service to you terry, our guests as a whole and the general paying public, I am bitterly disappointed with the management for the distain they clearly have demonstrated and rest assured there WILL be a very, very uncomfortable meeting for them happening next week to address this. I was advised only this evening after I got home (21:00hrs) that the event manager has spoken to our chairman and informed him of the latest goings on following nearly all the Duty Managers leaving the business during the previous two weeks, there being no communication of any issue previous to our arrival on Friday Morning at 7:00am. Everything that had been discussed, minuted and agreed upon has NOT been implemented in any way, in fact we have been treated like mugs. Which of course we are not. We are truly sorry for this failure and will report back as soon as is possible on this thread once I have so answers and resolutions. I do not want the club to be tarred with this brush any more than it already has been. We do have a number of local councillors and also the town mayor aware of the systemic failure of the contractor who supposedly run the venue. REST ASSURED - IT WILL BE SORTED...... Other than that I would like to thank everyone who came to the show as an exhibitor, trader or as a paying guest. I hope you had an enjoyable day, Above issue notwithstanding Best Regards Trevor Grout Assistant Exhibition Manager & Club Treasurer Shoeburyness Model Railway Club
