Gives me another chance to try and convince you (and the little one as a junior member) to join the club. Hopefully you, er'indoors and padwan-learner will get a chance to visit us at BMR sometime over the summer.

Don't wish to be pedantic but Brian Bennett's layout is Tre Ponti (not Tri Ponti)

Thanks Adrian, do I need to renew my passport as the Show is further south than Watford? :)

Hi Peter, as the lads from Stafford discovered when they they bought Treneglos to the show a few years ago Uckfield is quite a way down south being only about 16 miles further on to the south-east coastline at Newhaven - whether you need your passport or not depends on whether you are thinking on a day trip to France before returning home!

 

An alternative to consider is a trip to the Bluebell Railway, which is just down the road, who will be running their Autumn Tints service at this time of year - pre booking is required if you want a trip - see http://www.bluebell-railway.com/ for details.

Dear All,

 

Thought i would bump this with just over a week to go.

 

Looking at the layout list the show has four layouts that are making their debut at an exhibition as "completed" layouts, namely Wyebridge (S7), Sandford & Banwell (P4), Oak End Farm (G-9) and Llangerisech (2mm/ft finescale). A couple of these have been to society meets but this will be the first time at a public show.

 

Also we have several layouts that are making their first outing to the south-east (Kent, Surrey & Sussex) - St Juliot, Diesels in the Duchy, Crumley & Little Wickhill and Totnes.

 

Looking forward to welcoming any RMweb members visiting our part of sunny Sussex.

The 'Bomber's' flight plan is now just about finalised. We can't get into the clubrooms this week, HULL FAIR takes over the area!

Looking forward to the visit to the 'sunny' south.

I thought that's what you mean't.

 

I honestly don't know, he hasn't said.

 

I'll brush my hair in case
