Excellent little show and thanks to Ian for the invite.

 

Layout ran well and was appreciated. Good to meet up with fellow RMWwebber and fine music fan, Jamiell too!

 

Look out for next year's exhibition, 3rd September.

Just spent a useful couple of hours fettling the layout ready for the Ebor Exhibition on 20th and 21st February. It was those little irritating things that go with wear and tear and hadn't got round to before, like soldering dodgy rail connectors an giving the track a good clean and Hoover.

 

Glad I did them now and not at the last minute!

Two shows, Ebor and Lincoln, on successive weekends.

 

Hard work but fun really. Big thanks to Mally for the soldering yesterday!

Thought I would blow the dust off this thread to show the layout's next outing.

 

It will be at The York Show over Easter so if you are there, come and say hello.

Probably an idea to dust off the thread title, it's now 2017!

 

Doubt I'll be getting to York though, have fun!

 

Kindest regards

Added a short length of narrow gauge track that is meant to show a deliveries of another ore, well sort of any way...

N gauge track and Roco hoppers.

Spent an hour or so fettling the layout this pm to the sound of Split by The Groundhogs on the ghetto blaster.

 

Bit more greenery added (it grows you know), cleaned the track and did some test running. This showed up a disconnected wire on the sector plate, which was quickly sorted.

 

Must get a proper nameplate sorted before it's next show, which is Mansfield on the first weekend in March.

Enjoyed the article in Continental Modeller. Look forward to see the layout in the flesh sometime.

This layout is a fantastic example of a simple and compact track plan modelled very well. I'm very pleased that I've found this thread as I've seen this layout at a couple shows and its been nice to see something different and be able to see the construction stages of the layout.

Courtesy of that splendid chap Tim Horn and his laser cutting machine, the layout now has proper name board.  Very impressed with the quality and would happily recommend his work to anyone.

Just in case anyone was under the impression I am an armchair modeller, here’s a pic of DM2 at Caistor earlier today. It will be there tomorrow too.

Had the pleasure of attending the Caistor show this afternoon and very impressed and in particular with your layout Steve. Never seen it before but there is something that just makes it work so well with quality modelling that brought me back three or four times. Many thanks for exhibiting it, certainly provided me with some ideas.

I too saw this layout at Caistor, on Sunday, nice to see some small additions since I last saw it several years ago at a Cleethorpes show.

 

A well made layout with plenty of operational interest, the sector plate worked very well.

Good to know the show is still running. Hope to revisit someday with my new layout (once it's finished LOL)
