Many thanks to all visitors and exhibitors for yesterday.  We had a good day.


Here are a few snaps of the show.



Passing trains on Hook Basin



Russell on shed at DInas 






A quiet moment at Tucking Mill



High tide at Stow Creek



Farnham club's, in progress, layout of Wickwar (which is just a few miles north of Yate) - this was of particular interest to the general non modelling visitors to the exhibition and the Farnham gang learned a bit from local knowledge too!


Thanks again to all, now where is that list I had for 2015.............

Had a great day on Saturday at Yate
It's the 2nd year running that I exhibited there,
and I must say, the Sodbury Vale team are great
They're all so friendly, and although I arrived on my todd
I had an army of helpers, to assist me with unloading the car
Thanks folks

The standard of exhibits there was very high - as it was last year
and I would recommend this show to anyone considering going along next year
It's well worthwhile folks

It's always good to see the superb "Tucking Mill"
"Stow Creek" was interesting, and highly unusual, with its' tidal river!
and Rouse2037's layout looked good
Also enjoyed Dinas, and especially "Hook Basin" 

Thanks to Gilbert, there was an interloper on Poynton Sneer
A cracking loco Chris - it must have had special attention as a visitor,
as someone had obviously cleaned it thoroughly!
No one has ever done that at Poynton before ;)

Thanks for bringing D9523 along Chris - lovely model, you must be pleased with it
