This show is just a week away.  It's a unique venue, in the middle of the countryside, and worth a visit in its own right.


I'm taking Höchstädt, which will be in hall 3.  Other layouts in the same hall include Orlestone Quay (sic?) and Star Lane, so there is an RMWeb presence.  Maybe someone else can publish the complete batting order.


Hadlow Down is on the A272 between Uckfield and Mayfield and there will be a vintage bus service from Uckfield bus station and Buxted railway station;  last year provided by an RT and an RF.  Details at www.tinkerspark.com


By the by, there is no need for Höchstädt's troll to attend.

I did this show last year with Batcombe it was a great weekend out and the whole team really enjoyed themselves. When you aren't operating there are train rides, steam roller rides and traction engine rides. Not only that but the vintage bus will drop you and pick you up from the New Inn not that far away and the best pint of Harvey's going.

its just a few days to go till this show.


We also attended last year helping out on Bouviers Peak.


It is now a proper model railway show in a large modern hall, traders etc. so quite a change from the times we had vistied soem years ago where the model railway side of it was quite small.


I believe this year it will be in an even newer building.


Looking forward ot helping out on Star Lane. WIll be bringing a few spam cans and rebuilt ones to supplement the EMU's and the like.

Thanks for giving us a bit of publicity pre the kayout announcements Bill. Somewhere along the line an extra 'L' has appeared. The layout we are bringing is Orestone Quay, not spelt as above....


Looks to be a good show (I was a punter last year!!), there are some on my wish list for our exhibition!

Höchstädt now loaded - half already en route to Tinkers Park via Borough Green, the other half sitting on my drive.


Saturday will be diesel day, courtesy of Keith (Tetsudofan).  We test drove his V200 and the railcar which, when using his hand set, doesn't lock out the Cobalt point motors.  Confused of S E London!  The V200 stopped all conversation in the garage, it will be interesting to find out the impact in an exhibition hall.

Thanks to the organisers for a very enjoyable weekend. For the most part Orestone Quay worked fine but issues were resolved quickly. The new shed we were in was good, with enough space between the layouts for the public to stop and view exhibits both sides and still room to pass by. Great too to have the ales on site (I wasn't driving!).


Thanks ShuntShed for the video - again there were layouts I hadn't seen some parts of!
