I attended the Kendal MRC Show for the first time today with the clan and what a friendly and interestingly diverse show. Picked up a couple of bargains and had a Loco DCC Sound chipped whilst I waited free of charge and had a reduction on price of the new loco and a few pound off the DCC chip itself, which I thought was very good value. The kids loved it and as soon as they got home, Lego pushed aside, they had me help them re-setup their Thomas the Tank engine> so hopefully with mine (sanity) and their perseverance we will have two new recruits....


Great show and thank you for making it very welcoming and inviting, and great layouts too - Oxenholme was my favourite (I live only 6 miles from the station and have a few books of South Lakes lines...), St. Giles was a great layout and I believe it was shown on the BBC4 Timeshift programme on Model Railways. It was up for sale including all rolling stock! Pity it was BR Western as I would have snapped it up! Lastly, I loved the Port Maud, great idea, and a Derek great chap. Other mentions of particular note Melrose End, Bocstyn Sidings, Old Blarney. In fact all the layouts were of superb quality and one can see the hard work and effort implemented in all the layouts at the show. The layouts and the show (albeit a small show) was a credit to the hobby. Well done KMRC and Happy 50th!
