Due to unforeseen circumstances both Redwood Lumber and Junction City have had to drop out of this years show.

They are replaced by Nigel Hopwood's "Three Score Vale" Our thanks to Nigel for stepping in at short notice.

Well, I hope I can get there this year!  Trouble is there's lots on in April and I have another event on the Saturday (not railways) that I can attend.

 

Decisions, decisions!

 

I used to be indecisive but I'm not sure if I still am.

Unfortunately due to personal circumstances, Chris Nevard is unable to attend the show this year with Brew Street and has had to withdraw it from the show. He will be back next year though!

 

He is replaced at the last moment by Amalgamated Wagon (7mm O Gauge) by Ben Lord. Our thanks to Ben.

What a pity Chris can't be there, I was looking forward to seeing Brew Street.  However, Bryan and I should be there bright and early, ready for bacon butties downstairs prior to ascending the wooden hill (or is it stone?) to the show.

Layout put away for a little r and r. Good to meet up with old friends, and also plenty of newbies wanting to build a layout for the first time. Good show.

A grand day out, mostly spent talking! (and drinking tea)  I like these smaller shows, no need to feel that you have to get round in a rush to see everything.  Next weekend is York - the exact opposite!

Now at York, as the Rochdale MRG has 3 layouts there,  a lot of the same people you talked to at our show will be there, so that's some time saved then!

 

Thank you to all our exhibitors and visitors, another successful show, we will be back 18 and 19 April next year (We have had to move as Easter has nicked our normal weekend)

Yes - but I'll probably have forgotten what I said at your show so it'll all be new again.

 

So no time saved after all......................................:huh:
