  1. Delighted this thread has been transferred, liked the photos of Arrochar and Tarbet station building in the 1980s, now a historical item as they have been demolished. Look forward to seeing how this excellent layout progresses. regards Clive
  2. Dave, indeed we have all been there, especially as the nights draw in. However I find the christmas period, with a few days off ideal to reassess and actually do some modelling, especially the Christmas-New Year week being ideal.

  6. I've been out of the country for the last 10 years but I remember the Wigan show as being one of the best on the circuit so fully intend coming down from Helensburgh. I went to the Blackburn show this month which I enjoyed, so it will be a pleasure to travel down to Lancashire again to see the layouts and traders stalls, only downside is that I'll have to stay with the in-laws again! regards Clive
  7. Yes count me in too, modelling North bank of Clyde in early 60s. Regards Clive
