It may be a small one day show but always worth a couple of hours of any ones time. Not to be missed

SHEPCOTE LANE - one of the layouts on display at the show, exhibited by Josh Lovell, and built in conjunction with Barrie 'Baz' Jones who will be demonstrating on the day.

.

Built to 4mm scale and set in the steel industry of  South Yorkshire , the layout employs an ingenious working wagon tippler and traverser.

.

Worth coming to see !

The only way to quash the rumours about what's going on at "New Street TMD" is to come to the show and ask its' builder, Stu.

Brian Tucker's "Abercynon Fach" a 1950s / 1960s vision of a 4mm scale GWR 'Loan Act' shed will be impressing the visitors again.

I shall be there helping on the Welsh Railways Research Circle table - and probably parting with some money to traders!

I just hope I have time to see the layouts!

I wish I could be there but I've contracted another virus.  Enjoy yourselves without me.
