Another good little show with 3 N gauge layouts............

South Field Junction








Earby (the fiddle yards at each end reminded me of Laurence's) @Innovationgame







Cleggworth - John Oughton of the Aire Valley Railway Modellers Club was extremely chatty and when I discovered he was a friend of @Bob Tidbury all fell into place ;D

Hi Newportnobby ,Yes me and John Oughton go back a long time he was my bestman when me and Val got married 35 years ago and I knew him for quite  a while before that.Im not sure who would win the medal for talking the most but one would be first and the other second.he comes down at least once a year and Ray and me stayed with John when we went to the KEIGHLEY show.
I bet you had all.the chat about Clegworth and the last of the Summer Wine Story.
But he is harmless .

Thank you for the pictures.

Does anybody know if the warehouse in the last picture is a kit? And if so, who’s kit? It’s similar to the metcalf warehouse but not the same.

Sorry, but I can't help.
Maybe @Bob Tidbury could contact his friend John to see what the answer is?

Pjions83 I phoned John and he said that the layout was built at least 15 years ago by Bolton model club his club bought it as it was going to be scrapped.
One of the Bolton club members comes over every few weeks and John will ask him and let me know,    all he thinks is it was two German kits but he cant remember what make.
Is there a member of Bolton Club on.here who can give you any more information.?
Will let you know more when John rings me.

Pjions83. The only information John has found out for you is that the building is two KIBRI kits modified and joined together somehow but they dont know the model numbers.
The only thing they  can think.of is get in touch with Bolton Club and see if they can help.you.
