Hi Carl,

 

It was great to be part of the team on VoO over the weekend, thanks for letting me on the fun once again!

 

I'm so pleased that you are happy with "County of Merioneth" and thanks for letting me have a drive of it!

Lovely photos Carl. Would you mind if I borrow them? All mine came out blurred.

Great to be amongst some classy layouts at Wigan.  Looks of really good conversations with the public and old friends to make the weekend speed by. The layout developed an intermittent short on the right side, suspect the seep motors with the polarity switch to the frogs playing up, first time in 20+ outings that we had such a set back. That caused sound locos to keep re-booting , so a job for later in the year.

A few photos from the show

First outing for  7th 8th March 2020  at Royal Leamington Spa College for the LWMRS 2 day  show. Great to see Vale of Oxbury in amongst 6 N gauge layouts.

Some new steam stock to run, 3MT and a Sound fitted 2MT and for the first time we will have 2 running sessions for 70’s Banger Blue to make a change to usual transition era. Hopefully you will indulge us! Now which multiple unit is your favourite?

 

Stop by to say hello to myself ( Carl ) and the faithful motley crew Nick , Mike & Neil.

Fantastic news. We have not seen the layout since I think the 2mm show at the exhibition centre in Warwickshire. It was inspirational then and I am sure we will be wowed again this week end

Leamington  show  saw the layout well received, a few niggles with dry joints in fiddle yard that we finally resolved Sunday morning and  some locos not behaving ; probably should have expecting the issues as the last show was 4 months ago. It was the 20th show since it first appeared in 2013 on the exhibition circuit and to freshen things up we had a banger blue running session which was well received. Big thank again to my trusted operators, Nick Mike and Neil.

A few favourite photos of the 70’s session and the more normal 1960’s.

The layout looks really nice, Carl, and the blue diesels look at home as well!

And, if I may say so, is praise from the very highest level of blue diesels in WR N gauge modelling :)

I have been looking through your thread at various times and finally hit the follow button. This is N gauge as it should be. 

 

Thank you for the photos and sharing your progress.
