  7. Really good show with excellent trade support, but only gripe was for first two hours on the Saturday, the catering kitchen was closed and not open to noon. To be honest the amount you have to pay to hire the place, they should open the catering area from 10am. Even bar staff when I asked them if any food was available, said no and only spotted a public cafe near the entrance when leaving.

  14. I am going to present a report to a Steam Heritage line and would love the following input from railway modelers, of which I am one. I would like to know the answer to the following questions, as many heritage lines, local steam railways has paid staff and volunteers. You may have a few steam railways within an easy drive of some of you on here. The question is how come you don't volunteer or want to volunteer on them. Is your passion, model railways and recreating an era or actual steam & modern locos. I found this in flying as a pilot, lots of plane spotters love aircraft but never thought about having a go flying one. If you as model railway fans, had the chance to work on real engines, track, signals and infrastructure as a hobby, would you? and could you? Of course some may volunteer already, it is RM's who don't I am interesting in getting feedback from Also how many of you have ever actually driven a steam or diesel locomotive, and if not why not and do you have the desire to do so. Would any of you ever consider a working holiday on a heritage railway where a new skill can be taught or a skill you have could be used. Of course every steam railway has its steam buffs and photographers, but again many of these don't actually want to get their hands dirty or be part of the actual operation of a railway. Could it be a age thing, ie lots of jobs particular to engineering and line infrastructure do require a bit of agility and fitness. I know these seem odd questions to ask but there is a valid reason and ways to attract more volunteers to real steam railways.
  15. The lovely Shannon who usually runs the admission area at our shows and who many of our regular exhibitors know has a model photoshoot this Sunday for a teen magazine so she cant help us. So we seek someone from 9.30am to 2.30pm who is based near to Sevenoaks or can get there with ease, to be the second person running the entry desk. You will get £50 which we ask that you give us a invoice for on the day plus you get lunch and of course free entry after your shift to enjoy the show. Must be over 18 and friendly and able to deal with cash. Please text me on 07946 904208 if interested and can make this Sunday.
