  1. Meanwhile, back to exhibitions. Although Trainwest is still booked for April 2021, we have decided that the club can manage without the income. If things don't improve within the next few weeks we will have to manage without the show. That means there is now the distinct possibility that the next Trainwest exhibition will not be held until at least April 2022. That is a gap of three years. Geoff Endacott
  2. What about Chippenham, Bath and Bristol Temple Meads? Geoff Endacott
  3. So is it Mr Edison or Mr Tesla who will be organising the next exhibition? Geoff Endacott
  4. From Stu Vowles on Facebook: BULLDOG FAIRS,TOY AND TRAIN COLLECTORS FAIRS, CANCELLATIONS After much deliberation and consideration following the recent change in Government directive and the guidelines issued by Local Authorities and Public Health England we have taken the sad decision to cancel the rest of this year’s toy fairs. I am sure you will all understand that as organisers we are responsible for your safety. We feel we would be unable to maintain the current “rule of 6” at entry points in the halls etc. In addition, we are aware that we would be enc
  5. That's not really surprising. It was the two posts on Facebook yesterday saying that the show was going ahead and asking for support which seemed odd. They seem to have been deleted. Geoff Endacott
  6. That was a bigger layout. I wonder how many coaches would fit end to end on HLJ. Geoff Endacott
  7. It looks as though a toy fair will be going ahead next month. https://www.bulldogfairs.com/shepton-mallet/ Geoff Endacott
  8. That reminds me of the Swindon show when we had seven Westerns hauling 52 coaches. Geoff Endacott
  9. Not all shows are listed. Calne (January) wasn't listed which saved the job of cancelling it. Trainwest (April) isn't listed yet and may not be because it is staring to look as though the next show will be delayed until 2022. The layouts are all booked for 2021 and have been placed on standby for 2022. The official position at the moment is wait and see. Geoff Endacott
  10. We used to help with a show in Devizes but it no longer takes place. Maybe that has something to do with the local MP not wearing a face mask on a train. Geoff Endacott
  11. I didn't think I was being all that subtle. Geoff Endacott
  12. Please can someone remind me which exhibition was due to be held at the school in Bacup. Geoff Endacott
  13. Been there, done that. Never again. We were persuaded because it was a charity show for a good cause. Fields aren't level. Nothing would stay coupled. We spent all afternoon operating in push-pull mode with the locos on the downhill end. Freight trains did look a bit silly, but if the loco was on the uphill end there was a risk of uncoupled wagons rapidly disappearing off the end of the layout. Geoff Endacott
  14. Bentley MRG are introducing a booking system. Anyone wanting to visit the clubroom has to book in advance and once six people have booked the evening is full. Geoff Endacott
