May I also belatedly thank all at Warley club for looking after the exhibitors so well during the exhibition, and the NEC carpark staff for sorting out access details!

Sunday morning before opening time.
These photos were taken on a kindle due to some of the locations being too small to get the usual DSLR into.

Please let me know if James St. ever ventures into the frozen wastes of the north i.e. Lancashire.
I gotta see this in the flesh.

The "Shell Welder" tanker looks rather good.
I've got one of the Novo (Russian) productions after the old Frog masters ended up there as part of a trade deal. After some years as being built as the tanker model, I ended up converting it to a 4mm scale coaster on my OO layout!
A lot of the old Frog kits can still be found on sale, under various names, in Eastern Europe (Poland in particular).

Oddly enough I was just watching the layout on Youtube.

From 6:45 in https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tuHR3JrD8U4

I also watched James St on youtube and was about to enquire when it would be shown again, only to read it will be at Erith in Jan, hopefully will get to this show as I will be back in the UK for a couple of weeks, get to the show and hopefully return from the UK with a couple of Pendolinos if they are delivered in time.

70000 (just one of the Britannias on James St!);

The 'Shell Welder' is indeed the ex Frog one, now manufactured I think in Russia. Mine came from a model shop in Burnaby, British Columbia, via Ebay. I bought two; I had some correspondence with, I think, Weave, on his 'Port Perran' thread; basically, one was built as the 'Welder' with etched handrails, tank valve wheels, some other fittings and transfers from Atlantic Models; and replacement cast brass vents from a model shop in Cornwall. The green cargo ship was built by kitbashing the second kit, using the hull, some of the accommodation and fittings, and a lot of bits and pieces, and is intended to portray a motor coaster (Dutch 'schuyt', English pronunciation 'skoot') of the late 50s/early 60s. The coaster is not quite finished; I still need to source correct winches for the cargo runners and topping lifts.

As an ex Merchant Navy Officer, I'm well aware that we haven't yet got around to fitting bollards, mooring lines, and pipe runs on the quayside and ships; watch this space!

NPN;

We're just waiting for the invites to consider them :D!

We did get as far north as Wakefield and York with Steve's previous layout 'Linford Junction', so although it would be up to Steve, AFAIK, we've never been invited that far.
