Getting withdrawal symptoms. Almost 4 weeks since Wigan and now we have to wait another two months for Preston instead of it's traditional slot which would have been this coming weekend (great antidote to mince pies and tinsel)...

 

I will be there with Hoglington: looks a very good line-up for 2mm scale - 3 top class N gauge layouts plus Wansbeck Road (which is actually 2mm Fine Scale)

Paul,

I know that I miss the exhibition straight after the New Year, but unfortunately the weather over the last two winters made it too much of a risk (you may remember that we had to cancel two years ago due to the snow!).

 

Thanks for pointing out the scale of Wansbeck Road, I'd just taken the details from our website. I've now amended its description.

 

Cheers

Jeremy

Getting ready to help Mike with Herculaneum which may have even more developments.... Hoping to see some more Liverpool people at the show as they visited Leeds last year and said they would come to Preston

Ynysybwl is EM not OO. This is its 4th show and we still haven't finished building it.

I trust it will be finished for York at Easter then, or certain well known person, who is unfortunately no longer with us, will be most displeased :angry:

Oops :scratchhead: No sure what happened to my maths there, but yes you are correct, just less than three weeks to go (hall opens two weeks on Friday :stinker: ).

Please note that due to issues of ill health of one of the operators, Herculaneum Dock will unfortunately not be coming to the exhibition.

 

The good news is that it is already booked in again for next year.

 

The other good news is that MURRAYVILLE YARD, (USA Chicago in the 70s HO 16.5mm) will be attending this year to fill the space left by Herculaneum Dock, thanks to Normanton & Pontefract MRS.

 

The list of layouts at the top of this thread has been updated to take account of these changes.

Now into the final countdown mode, "Bee Lane" is pretty much ready to go, although I've still got a bit of weathering to do on another train :no:

 

Please feel free to come and say hello.

 

Cheers

I'll be there with Severn D'Wharves. This will be (so far) its only outing for 2012 and possibly its last show as I've no more invites for it (it's already been everywhere?? I think). So if you want to see it and haven't yet, come on down to Preston. :-)

I'll be paying a visit on the Saturday to spend some money and take the mickey out of my fellow FMRC members while they're pretending to operate Ian Edward's '' fully automatic'' Furka Oberalp! Baseboards designed by Ian's insane imagination and built by yours truly. Take a look and shake head! :no: kev.

I'm hoping to get there for a couple of hours on Saturday - depends on work/family commitments. There's even a faint possibility that I may bike it there!

Mick

Shameless bump and also a correction: Severn D'Wharves will also be at the Alsager club's show in Crewe in November. (I actually got around to checking my diary! :-0 ).

Mick,

It's not really a problem cycling there, (as its mostly downhill from yours), do I take it that as you don't mention biking it back, that you may be planning to use an alternaitve means of getting home (taxi, train ?!?) we need to know! :no: :heat:

Last bits of weathering now completed for a new freightliner train for Bee Lane, all that's needed now is to pack the remaining items and get the layout down to the exhibition tomorrow.

 

Look forward to seeing people over the weekend.

 

Cheers

Today's the day everyone - Let the Show begin!!!!!

 

Just about to set off to get there in plenty of time to be first in the queue!!

Only kidding, I'll be walking right past that queue (Here's hoping there is one!!) to get in with plenty of time to put the stock on Bee Lane!!

 

Come and say hello, we don't bite.

 

Looking forward to seeing you all
