Hi Ray

 

Had a great day at West Shore last week end with Polly and Yourself, I noticed that...

 

'The difference between men and boys, are the price of their toys'...! Do I stay at OO Gauge or move on to 5inch ha-ha... great day I have to say.

If you are in the area, do come along and say, 'hello'.  We are open every Saturday between Easter and end of October, 1200-1600 and Bank Holiday Weekends.

We will be delighted to see you.

The next time I go to Toronto, I will see if I can find any photos in my dad's albums of a show in North Wales in the 70's.  I'm fairly sure there are some prints.
