As a non "GOG" member I spent quite some time yesterday looking for an organised web entry that would allow me to see which layouts and traders would be present, but I had to give up. Did I miss something, or is it a "top secret" show, or has something since appeared to inform we mere mortals of what's on offer?

You are not the only one to have commented on that. Even  major trader who is attending said to me its odd that there seems to be little in the way of whats on.


But as far as I know its on and all the traders who I have been dealing with over the past two weeks are still going.

I recommend f&c @ The Mermaid off A650 in Morley but frankly you're spoilt for choice in that area, beef dripping fried heaven...

Well I had fish and chips today, as per Friday ritual, in Grimsby where the customers tend to be fairly discerning regarding the quality of fish and chips, so I'd have to be persuaded that the quality in Cleckheaton was pretty exceptional in order to want fish and chips again tomorrow. For a start it would have to be fresh haddock, none of your cod rubbish...


Anyway, I think fish and chips must be as far off-topic in the exhibitions forum as cake was when York show was discussed a few weeks ago, so I'll emphasize that it is actually the model railway show that I'm looking forward to and which I consider to be important.

Its not off topic, there is a long standing symbiotic relationship between model rail shows and fish & chips, esp in West Yorkshire, Wakefield, Brigus, Leeds etc
