Some pics taken at the show today (26 August 2017) of local layouts and some of my favourite models, on them.

 

First, Belturbet, 21mm (I think)  finescale. South Dublin MRC:

Sorry I missed you at the Show yesterday Ivor.

 

Some of my BUT's on Killagan, unfortunately today is this layouts last appearance on the Exhibition circuit. 

 

Hi

 

Looks a smashing layout. It seems a shame that it's the layouts last outing. Hope only temporary.

Hi Kieran, was that you, showing the GNR 700 BUT to the fellow who was admiring them, late morning? If so I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to chat, time was running out. And that I didn't get to snap the full set running, so I'm glad you filled the gap by posting your own!

Maybe the next time Ivor.  The Killagan Layout has been given a reprieve and may get an other showing before if finishes. 

I had major problems with the pickups on my Baltic but am delighted to report that these issues have been resolved and she ran well on the layout today.

Sweet! I don't know what the magic factor is, but your Baltic looks even better 'in the flesh' than in a picture, another fading memory brought to full-colour life that would otherwise languish in dusty pages and old monochome photographs. She was running ok when I saw her on Saturday, unlike the (RTR?) S Class whose leading bogie seemed to want to go its own way at any excuse. Anyhow, glad Killagan may be on show again, it's a truly outstanding layout in every respect from backscene to buildings and everything in between.

May I please ask who owned the table with a collection of models displayed? They all look rather exquisite. I'm sorry I could not be there any of the days, the downside of being a stressed student haha.

 

The model aircraft table was the NI Branch of the IPMS. For the 1/35 AFVs, which included intriguing sruff like an E100 (I think) the programme ays - 'Military Modellers - Stephen Armstrong'. The 'collection' of railway models in my last pic above, as per Kirley's pic which shows the weedkiller train properly, is labelled as part of stand 10, which as Irishmail says, is UMRC territory.

 

Unfortunately I didn't get pics of the 'Impressions of Ireland' N Guage layout (or indeed the other layouts) but some pics of the former are up on the Model Irish Railways forum.
