Contemplating a trip to the show but putting LE11 9DS into Google Maps or Bing puts you in Loughborough?? :no2:

 

The venue is actually showing up as LE12 9DA.. :toclue:

Big. And local. I'll be there!

 

. . . . . . and if you want small and local then come a few miles north to Derby for the Mickleover show

I can also confirm the correct postcode is LE12 9DA

Thoroughly enjoyed yesterday - really impressed by "Dubmill Sidings", "Yeomans Quay", "Maristow". There were two "minimum space" (but very nice) layouts whose names escape me and there was a 1:32 diorama that was really well done. The Gauge 3 Society had an interesting display (don't often see much of that in one place), some nice Gauge 1 and G Scale items on the "larger scale" test track.

 

It was REALLY nice to be able to actually take time out to sit and chat to some of the demonstrators and to be able to talk to traders without feeling as if you are being hurried round.

 

VERY friendly people, decent food, cheap to get in - @"Crewe North" - do you know what the date is for next year?
