My toolbox is packed. I'm trying to anticipate everything Andy Y might break...

I was going to post 'the internet' and use a well known celebrity with Andy's face - but my initial search on a work computer made me reconsider.

 

Thank goodness Google defaults to 'safe search'

These guys are fast! Last boards being erected. I daresay a pub's waiting for them.

Just a note to say that someone left a small black (A5-ish) diary/notebook and white envelope on one of the free shuttle buses that arrived at the bus station around 1640 today (Saturday), and it was handed to the driver if it belongs to anyone here.

Yes, it was worth a walk around, not that many layouts that took my fancy but that's personal preference rather than a comment on the quality of the show.  Busy but not too busy you couldn't move.  Plenty of trade support.  Easy to get to/park.  On-site food was expensive though...

Just arrived home from this show, some good layouts and although busy room enough to get round. The main crushes seem to be around the trade stands rather than round the layouts which seems to be the way of these large shows nowadays, but there is obviously a demand and people were saying it was even busier on Saturday.

"T.G.B. Metal Recycling & Block Pavers" and "Rosamund Street (Low Level) Sidings" are now both home and unloaded at Penarth & Cardiff respectively.

.

Doncaster Racecourse to home in 4hrs. dead, including a stop for fuel.

Very, very enjoyable weekend with a variety of modelling subjects, of very good quality, displayed by some exceptionally friendly types !

.

Nice catch-up with the Ballyconnel Road team - don't try and blame us for your heads this morning.

.

Well organized show, thanks to the BRM staff and the Doncaster club members.

 

All in all a "damned good" weekend

On behalf of the DL team, thanks to all the BRM/Warners staff for arranging the event (and all others involved behind the scenes.)

 

Cheers,

HI all,

 

On behalf of the Charwelton into the 80's team we just want to say a big thank you to Sam (who booked us after seeing a few photos in our thread) and the BRM/Doncaster MRC team for inviting us to the show with the layout.

 

We had a great time and it was nice to meet so many people who have been following us on here and through our social media channels. We also got a chance to talk to a few people who had been to the station whilst it was open.

 

We also got called young by one lady who enquired about our contraption on one of the fiddle yard roads. :D

 

Last of all, many thanks to those of you who stood at the barrier and watched the trains go by. Hope you enjoyed it. All we could see was a sea of faces.51651222_1173314659498570_3149546045537517568_n.jpg.18c2e7fedf425b3ccad772c279225dbc.jpg

 

Thanks

Simon

Had a good day out Saturday having come up Friday and popped into Rails' new showroom just before closing time! Show was good but rammed. Much calmer after mid-afternoon. Good to see lots of kids/families. Really liked Charwelton -  loved the long distance view down to the tunnel, probably the most realistic/natural looking I've seen. Lots to buy, managed to resist a TPE 68 but they look gorgeous in OO and some competitive pricing on them. Good day out :)
