SWAG Members Day - Sunday 28th April 2019 - The Line Up

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Once again, on behalf of the organising committee, I am pleased to announce the line-up for the 11th Annual RMWeb Member's Day at Taunton on Sunday, 28th April 2019.

 

As ever, the venue will be Staplegrove Village Hall, 214 Staplegrove Road, Taunton, TA2 6AL.

Doors are open at 10:00 until 16:00 and entry is restricted to RMweb members and their guests, and members of the Taunton MRG.

 

Layouts
Bleat Wharf - Rob Gunstone - another masterpiece in the making by the Sheep Bloke from Cardiff.
 

Pomona Works - Arthur Ormrod - Taking a break for organising the Module layout, Arthur is bringing his Cameo layout

 

DM4MS - Yep, another pile of implausible nonsense from your’s truly.

 

Loughborough Road MPD - Part of Alan Paley's larger layout, he & Simon are bringing just the MPD section

 

Proto Z - Mini-zob - The return of the trackwork maestro, Brian Harrap, with the ever-popular layout on an ironing board.


Rosamund Street Sidings – A first visit to the event for Brian Rolley and his excellent layout.


Sandy Shores - Similarly, a first visit for Jam (Jamie Warne) to Taunton with his exquisite 009 layout.


Upwell Drove - Alex is bringing his 1960s Fenland layout  

 

Wheal Imogen - Rich Peddar's P4 layout, set in the China Clay region of Cornwall.

 

 

2018 & 2019 Q1 Cakebox Challenge dioramas

We'll have a separate display table just for Cakebox Challenge entries - please bring yours along to add to the display.

 

Demonstrators
We also have a varied selection of experts, eager to show you how to do stuff:

 

Mick Bonwick - weathering

 

Paul Rolley - 3d printing

 

Chris Tooth - Plasticard modelling

 

Mark Forrest - EM / P4 kit built and RTR wagons & track

 

Retail therapy

 

We are pleased to welcome Lord & Butler this year - many thanks for stepping in at short notice

 

Also back is Brian Mosby & 247 Developments

 

Hopefully Simon Castens from the Titfield Thunderbolt will be here with a selection of books

 

Please get in touch directly with any of our traders if you want them to bring items to the show for you.

 

Bring & Buy

We also have the very popular Bring & Buy stall - further details will be published soon, but you can make a start sorting out all those items SWMBO says you don't need.

 

 

Catering

 

Pies & Pasties have been personally checked by Captain Kernow and deemed suitable for consumption.

 

Cakes - we've had a few offers of cakes, but there is always room for more.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 27th April

 

This year the majority of the Saturday is free for those who wish to come down to Somerset early, to spend time as they wish. Heritage railways such as the West Somerset Railway and the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway are close by, for example.

 

I can also confirm that Taunton MRG have once again agreed to open their clubroom at Bishops Lydeard station specially for us from 1700 to 1900 hrs on the Saturday, with the usual warm and friendly welcome.

 

After visiting Taunton MRG we will continue to The Lethbridge Arms, Bishops Lydeard.  More information on the evening meal can be found here. Please respond to Graham Muz by Saturday 13th April

 

 

Sunday 28th April

 

Doors for setting up layouts open at 8:00, prior to that we'll be laying out the floor plan.

 

Doors for members to visit open at 10:00 and close at 16:00.

 

 

We look forward to seeing you there !!

 

Update 1 : Added Mark Forrest as EM / P4 demonstrator

Update 2 : Unfortunately, Simon & Titfield Thunderbolt are not able to attend this year

I suppose I ought to get on and finish off the fiddleyard then...

 

Actually thinking about it I think my wife would rather like the dining room back, which has been full of layout since the week before the Yate show should have taken place in early Feb...

You don't live in the same house as me, do you? 

 

Mutton is on the china cabinet and Bleat is currently on the dining table..

You could always share a fiddle yard, or failing that, a tandem.

Does Taunton have  Premier Inn by any chance? There seems to be a bit sports ground near the station where I could do flight practise and graze/scoff.

Mrs Stubbers could build it now. Plenty of time then for the brandy to be absorbed.

With just over a month to go, don't forget we have a superb Bring & Buy stall for your unwanted items, as well as Lord & Butler and 247 Developments - get your postage free orders into them & collect on the day.

 

If you have any weathering questions, Mick B will be happy to demonstrate - bring your own rolling stock along and have a chat.

 

Paul R will have his 3D items to show and some for sale.

 

I'm not sure Chris T is intending to make you a building on the day, but he too will be happy to chat about how to mangle plasticard into very believable wood, stone and roof coverings.

 

Did I mention we'll have Pies, Pasties & Cake as well ?

Whats the donation on the bring & buy?

 

Ideally I'd like to write a list, share it in this thread, then bring along those items that have sold to settle payment (and pay the x% donation on the day) rather than lugging a whole bunch of extra stock to and from Taunton in addition to the layout.

 

Will likely be a bunch of modern image wagons, including a handful of Bachmann intermodals.

Chris is certainly not going to be able to start and finish a building in one day! 

 

As Stu says I'll be bringing along a selection of the 7mm scale buildings from Pencarrow which are in various stages of completion and will be aiming to demonstrate how I achieve some of the finishes, the materials used and construction methods. 

 

Shout if there's anything in particular you want to see.

For the avoidance of doubt and to inform those not in the know, I should say that the right honourable Captain has his spyglass the wrong way around. The shots are of 7mm buildings. :P
