  1. Nothing blue on Huxley Junction but the carriages are a nice shade of green.
  2. Had a great w/end despite the weather. As we carry our layout in our motorcaravan we could not get on the caravan site as it was very much a victim of Fridays weather. Hazel Grove club soon sorted us out and all the the members were all so helpful making sure that help was there unloading and reloading layouts after the show. Well done. Lucky for us the swimming pool on the new A555 had been drained so we were home in good time. Thanks again for a great weekend. George and Joan (Huxley Junction)

  8. Getting Huxley Junction ready for our show. I found a couple of my "little people" had collapsed. After some CPR and a drop of superglue they made a speedy recovery. George
  9. Why not enjoy a day at the seaside? Take a trip to LLandudno and visit our show in Craig y Don and say HI. George
  10. Gutted with this incident. I am also willing to take a layout f/o/c to anything that might be be organised.
  11. We will be there with O Gauge Southern Region Huxley Junction. As "Summer comes soonest in the South" we will try and bring it with us. George
  12. Will be there with West Ridge MT. Hon30 layout that is built on a "baseboard" made from supermarket veg boxes. Come along and see how to do it. George
  13. Visited the show yesterday and really enjoyed our day out. Plenty of diversity regarding the location of the layouts and though i am not a modern image modeller i really liked the N gauge layout "Tanners Hill." Refreshments were excellent and served up by the friendly ladies of the catering team. It was also good to meet up with and chat to a large number of of like minded friends who i had not seen for a while. So if you can make it today just go as the show was great. George
  14. Not Maunsell but the Southern ran push pull units that were converted fro Steam railmotors that ran on the Sheppey Light Railway. They were the only articulated units that ran on the Southern. I have got an O gauge set that always brought questions from show visitors who saw it running on my layout "Upsan Downs". Sadly that layout is no more but i am building a smaller one (as yet no name). the debut showing will be next July at the Colwyn Model Railway show. I do not know where you are situated but if you are reasonably close perhaps you could visit the show. I managed to obtain a small book called "The Sheppey Light Railway" by Peter A. Harding which shows the sets with various SR locos in charge. George
