I agree but as I had some suitable western region stock that ran in the BR period I decided to run it post -nationalisation 

 

Perhaps when the piggy bank is in a better state a good idea for the future.

Put the two Quays alongside each other and I could possibly maybe sneak some malachite on….

 I haven’t decided which year to run at Stafford yet so I’m open to hearing preferences from potential visitors.

Not the 1980s. I travelled along there in 1952/54/57/58/59 then most years from 1967 to 1990. The earlier years were the best.

Only 45, I was really hoping for 46, it could be a deal breaker.:D

Just waiting for confirmation of a couple more layouts to add to the 2022 Exhibition list.

As someone who doesn't get out of bed for exhibitions with less than 46 layouts I am pleased to hear this and shall be setting my alarm clock.

Looking on what’s on offer prior to the Stafford exhibition means you won’t getting out of bed  very early till February 2022

You could get out of bed for something and then go to the exhibition.

THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR………
 

Stafford Railway Circle 2022 Exhibition 

5th & 6th February 2022

 

BINGLEY Hall (New Larger Venue) 

Stafford County Showground 

Weston Road 

Stafford 

 

OPENING TIMES:  SAT 10.00 - 5.00pm - SUN 10.00 - 4.30pm
ADMISSION:  Adults £12.00  Concessions £12.00      

We have confirmed our date for 2022 which will be the usual first weekend in February at our normal venue of the County Showground in Stafford. Over the last 10 years or so of utilising the exhibition space at the Showground we have grown the exhibition from using just one of the three halls to the present situation of using all of them. We have been aware that growth in numbers attending has risen considerably, such that it is now time to move into the larger Bingley Hall.

Our biggest ever show with 45 layouts and 35 traders presently booked with more to be added. Our usual demonstrators area and club stands will be present. We are conscious of needing to spread the gangways so that crowding can be alleviated and our extra space (Potentially 60 per cent more!) will enable us to do this. There is a restaurant within the hall situated on the gallery level with a lift available if needed. There could well be a bar as well but this is to be confirmed later. Much larger toilet facilities are available. There will be a free bus service from Stafford Railway station as in the past. Plenty of free parking as well.

I went three (?) years ago and decided it was one of the best shows I've ever been to. Unfortunately is a fair way north for me and the satnav decided that a southerly approach was the best. It wasn't!

I'd like to go, Covid restrictions permitting, but I think I'd go on the M1 to the A50 and then drop down. Seems a better route, but who knows on the day.

I would agree that the M1 / A50  is the better route and the one I favour if I’m heading down south from Stone Nr Stafford

As I am coming from the North I can either use the a34 for a leisurely 1.5 hour drive or take the M6 for some stress for a 1 and a 1/4 hour drive - might take the former I think unless it's been snowing.

 

I was going to do the train, but if I did rather than go on XC I would use Northern to Crewe, LM to Stafford and then hang around for the bus at Stafford - I think the car actually sounds comfier and less masky.

Both routes can be a right pain. Last time I was driving to Stafford I travelled over the hills through Buxton and Leek. The shortest and quickest route from my house, very scenic for an early morning drive but sometimes not clever in the winter.
