We couldn't hold our annual Members' Day event in Taunton this year, scheduled for Sunday 26th April but what we are doing is bringing you that plus much, much more in virtual form.

 

This topic is for the layouts (not) attending and will open up for set-up on Sunday morning at 7.30am. I know there is some cracking content to be shown, some favourites from around RMweb plus some content we've not seen. Layout owners have been snapping away and editing videos ahead of the day and getting into the spirit of the event; it's been great to see. What we will see, by the end of the day, is one of those shows (which if actually held in the real world) would become legend. And if you weren't there you missed out on something special.

 

Stu Hilton has put so much into the organisation of the original date and I owe him many thanks and look forward to next year; he says...

I'd like to add my own thanks to all those who had agreed to come to the actual Members day, with their layouts or demo or trade stands. Some were coming from a great distance too, which shows how high a regard this event is held within the forum.


It had promised to be another great day, with several new layouts on display, as well as the chance to be scanned by Modelu for your own little person.


Hopefully you'll enjoy the 'virtual' show just as much, please join in if you're able, and please either purchase a raffle ticket or donate to the NHS fund.

This will be a time to enjoy, so much ahead of the day has focussed upon the fundraiser for NHS Charities Together which has had a phenomenal response from the modellers and trade. You can still purchase draw tickets up until midnight tonight and the draw will be held on Monday 27 April.

 

I shall not be there bright and early on Sunday!

 

(Topic will be unlocked at 7.30 on Sunday)

Typically it's just me and @Mr.S.corn78 standing in the car park chewing the fat waiting to get started. Hang on, did Stu say he was not picking up the keys or wasn't it me that should have done it?

Tables, who needs tables ?

 

Not me please.

 

Have you got your elastic tape measure sorted Stu? There's a lot to fit in here today. Hopefully @Brinkly and @Taz will be here soon to knock it into shape.

Didn't we tell you? It's all vegan this year.

Morning. 

 

Nice trip over.  Not a lot of traffic. Took the opportunity to make a bit of progress. 

 

Any way, where am I going?

Have a good time everyone, the Taunton event is a highlight in my calender and the virtual event has been very good so far and thanks to all for putting it together.

 

Regrettably having cancelled the leave I had booked to spend the Weekend in Taunton, I have been rewarded with a double stock + switch replacement* this weekend on the prototype to deal with instead (plus I'm on 12hr nights).

 

 

*point replacement in laymans terms.

Let the show begin.

Andrew Burnham has kindly agreed we can use these images of Gare de Brindille that were taken by Ian Manderson for Continental Modeller. They are way better than anything I can do!

Great images of a lovely layout - lots of beautifully observed detail.

You didn't say, but is this 4mm?
