 @dannyboy   Well as it is touching 30 C here for the next few weeks I have decided to wear a Sweatshirt and socks, the idea is to keep them on for the next 4 weeks in readiness for TINGS, thanks to advice from @newportnobby .  My only problem is where to buy a large enough rucksack and suitable padding at short notice. Yorkshire airlines are not responding to my emails and the special offer on the Ryanair website requires me to pay the months salaries for both the pilot and copilot.

Help  Jerry

 
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

Attaboy, Jerry! Up and at 'em. If you don't have such a thing in Italy then, upon arriving in the UK, just visit any Army Surplus Store and purchase the biggest Bergen they have c/w 6" square steel frame :D

Hey, why not go the whole hog and just buy a tent to wear on your back!

As it seems that some members will be at TINGS in an 'official' capacity, i.e. exhibiting, how about a list of members who are exhibiting, (forum name/'real' name/layout name), so that we can all go and say hello and introduce, (make a nuisance of), ourselves  ???. I have met a few members, (at York last year), but there are a lot more I would like to put a face to the name. I know there is the NGS 'meet up' at 2pm on both days, but it would be nice to see people with their creations.  I could try during the early hours to read the thread and see if I can work out who will be there.  :beers:

Hi,
I will be on the welcome duties I expect and then covering door and other steward duties, will be on buildup/ breakdown duty so hopefully will say hello to many.
The show listings on website look good as ever hopefully they will all fit - always a bit of fun between stated sizes and what turns up !!

Hopefully Dapol and Bachmann will have a few returns bargains - but these do seem less than in past years !

It would be good to get over 2500 through the door  so bring friends and family ! Leamington near by with lovely shops and cafes for a family day if some cannot be convinced ! 

On line tickets available and after some requests looks like a shuttle bus on the Saturday from Railway station

regards
Robert

I will be there on Sunday, and hope to sneak into the photo again, as in previous years....However, as I am not on the forum very much, nobody is likely to know who I am!!!!

Hi Danny boy is spot on the parking is on site in  partially surfaced carpark  with around 60 accessible spaces and space for 8 coaches, also hard standing for bikes and best of all an icecream van normally rolls up - aids my sugar rush !

look out for www.ngaugeshow.co.uk - also full page ad in Model rail page 57 in the No 238 Summer 2017 issue ( how it gets around the  4 weekly production in a 12 month year a sort of bonus issue)

Hopefully Dapol 142 and perhaps Farish 40 in painted versions or best to buy?
but with 30 layouts and 40 traders a good show with something for almost everbody... see you there
Robert

I must confess to being somewhat disappointed. I filled in an exhibitor information sheet for my layout and received a reply back at the beginning of May saying they had received the information and will contact me again. I have heard nothing since so I assume they don't think my layout is good enough for their show. It's their loss as this layout is in Hornby Magazine this month and I'm sure they could have got some publicity for their show out of it. Never mind there are plenty more shows that I have been invited to.

More likely, not cheap enough.... :(
