I'll be sat in the café of a certain supermarket Thursday morning reading that, Ollie :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Is that so as you can put it back on the magazine shelf when you have finished it ?
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

It's wot I do... latest mag from UK is about Class 47s and the like. Looks great on a flip through in the newsagents, but not cheap and Mrs Bealman is starting to whinge about the build up of mags here!

I know that feeling!  I have a mountain of Traction mags, as well as one or two others.  The frequent question from Mrs 25901JFM is "Do you really need to keep all of them?"

I really do need to need to sacrifice some of them... One day I may get round to sorting them out.

Hello Ollie

I have just spent a very pleasant post-luncheon few minutes reading about Wenlock in this month's Railway Modeller.  It is a lovely layout and your article was a joy to read.  I liked the accompanying photographs which appear to be uncredited.

Congratulations on both a super layout and an excellent article.

Best wishes.

John

Evening all.

Well another show has been and gone. This time Wenlock was shown at Ellesmere, so not only a very local show but also a 2 day affair. The layout was well received as always and a lot of people mentioned the article. Saturday was hectic whilst Sunday was much quieter. Help was provided on Saturday by Leigh and we treated it as a practice run for TINGs and an excuse to run some of his Regional DMUs! I'm just busting to get the extension built now! A few pics as always...















So that's another badge to the collection. As seen below I've also made up some for the two shows that didn't provide one!



I made it just under 4 weeks until Wenlock is next out and about at TINGs. Hopefully will be seeing many of you there!!

Cheers

Ollie

Fantastic little layout this Ollie :thumbsup:

And I see you have actually managed to get Leigh to do a bit for a change ;) :claphappy:

Looking forward to meeting you and seeing Wenlock in all her glory at the Salop show, in October.

Cheers

Many thanks, Ollie.  I have now seen the credit.  Normally, photograph credits in the Railway Modeller are rather more prominent.  Congratulations on your photographs which really do justice to this lovely little layout.

Best wishes.
