  1. The trouble is that if every two months things shift back by two months we will never get back to normal. Geoff Endacott
  2. Solihull is cancelled. http://www.solihullmrc.org/exhibition20.html Geoff Endacott
  3. One of the main reasons for attending exhibitions is to meet other people. The main risk for contracting the virus is meeting other people. I think I can see the problem. Geoff Endacott
  4. So following on from Bachmann's policy of releasing Warships with running numbers which don't match the chosen body, we now have one Hymek which is right and three which are wrong. Geoff Endacott
  5. From their Facebook page (and other sources): Model Rail Scotland 2021 AMRSS Limited the organisers of Model Rail Scotland have been advised by the Scottish Event Campus that due to the venues continuing use during the remainder of 2020 and into the early part of 2021 as an NHS Nightingale Hospital for the Coronavirus outbreak the hall used for Model Rail Scotland will be unavailable. The Exhibition Management team have carried out a detailed analysis of the risks and challenges the current coronavirus situation presents to them as event organisers and have agreed that the best course of action is to cancel the 2021 show and look forward to the 2022 exhibition which will take place on the 25th, 26th and 27th February 2022. The organisers hope you understand the reasoning behind this decision but given the degree of uncertainty relating to the current public health situation and how it could impact on matters into the early part of 2021 it considered to be the appropriate solution.

  6. Looking at this again, perhaps the whole body was painted blue and then the brown paint was applied on top of the blue. Its later appearance could then be explained by the brown paint wearing (or washing) off. Geoff Endacott
  7. Confirmed with this on their Facebook page: Rail Ex Taunton 2020 - CANCELLED. We are sorry to announce that due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the pandemic it has been decided to cancel the 2020 show. We hope to return as normal in October 2021. Geoff Endacott
  8. I can't just move the Trainwest 2020 layouts to 2021 because that show was already full. I also had ten layouts already booked for 2022. I have therefore had to start again by asking everyone what their availability is for 2021 and 2022. Next year's show will not be the show that was planned for 2020, nor will it be the original 2021 show. It will be a compromise. Geoff Endacott
  9. That's the problem. In theory clubs could make a lot of adaptations to comply with Covid-19 guidelines. In practice it's just too much hassle. Geoff Endacott
  10. The problem is that people from no more than two households are allowed to meet indoors. Geoff Endacott
  11. The Swindon Railway Festival is cancelled. https://www.steam-museum.org.uk/events/event/16/cancelled_swindon_railway_festival Geoff Endacott
  12. Cancellations have now started for next year's shows. Chiltern 2021 is off. https://www.cmra.org.uk/exhibition.html?fbclid=IwAR1z02z2AXdYCFahymaTDLHcCoLrXrHlbI0SN6fkTnZItJ3WE6Zl8ZhdVCQ Geoff Endacott
  13. From the Cheltenham Great Western Modellers Group: It is with great sadness that we have to announce that our October 2020 exhibition has been cancelled due to the current COVID 19 restrictions on exhibitions and shows. We hope with a little bit of luck we will be back with our April 2021 exhibition. Please take care , stay safe and we will see you all when our exhibitions can continue. Geoff Endacott
  14. Another one bites the dust. https://www.steam-museum.org.uk/events/full Geoff Endacott
  15. This advice from the UK Men's Sheds Association has some information which might be relevant to model railway clubs: https://menssheds.org.uk/2020/07/01/slowly-does-it/?fbclid=IwAR3mVYBmUBGx3XcTNg_MuRcm5jK6gzt8z8tmIkJcpNCMEBdpifXWO9NB7NM Geoff Endacott
