Afternoon.

All I can say is 'Wow this is one seriously impressive layout. One that has most definitely been added to my bucket list of layouts to see.

Cheers

Hello Ollie;

so far this year we are booked at Erith (Jan), Bristol (May), Southwold (Aug), and Farnham (Oct).

I know that Steve has got serious enquiries and tentative bookings for next year and beyond already, but I'm not sure where or when...he just phones and says  'by the way'....

Whew!

a pause after a very rewarding exhibition at Longfield (Erith). There are a number of comments at

http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=37319.msg488200#msg488200

It was pleasing to hear so many commentrs from the public, and Graham did make it from Oz! I am very pleased on Steve's behalf that the layout won 'best in show'; we also had considerable interest from MRE magazine, who had the stand opposite us, to follow up with some news and views.

We did pick up a firm invite; Broadstairs in November this year (2018).

Many thanks agin to all of you for yopur comments, and once again, if you have video or photos, please feel free to add them to our topic; its nice (usually) to see the layout from the other side.

Martyn

Thanks to all of you on James St for making me welcome, and I will definitely try and make it to Broadstairs if I come over in November. This has to be the best layout I have had the pleasure of seeing.

I managed to grab a few minutes away from Beijiao to have a good look James Street this afternoon. It's a superb layout. Lots of nice detail, and plenty of running action.
Well done guys. One of my favourites of the show.

Hi Martyn,

Very much hope to see James St. at Farnham.

It's a big layout and you probably have a routine for doing it but I'm a 49 year old 6'2" landscape gardener and only live 9 miles away so if you need an extra pair of hands to help shift stuff in and/or out of the exhibition room I'd be very willing to help.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Hi Weave;

We might just take you up on that as we will probably be short handed setting up on Friday due to work commitments..........

One of us will keep in touch if required.

Many thanks.

What you doing up at this ridiculous hour?

I'm too hot to sleep.

Anyway, no problem. I'm a self employed one man band and do what I like on a Friday so just let me know.

Cheers Chris (weave)  :beers:

I canít wait to see this fantastic layout again at Southwold  , I saw it at Thornbury and was just amazed ,Rob the Southwold  exhibition manager said  B H E are right opposite at Southwold and so we will be able to watch it both days ,he did say that unfortunately it will only be viewable from three sides due to the width of the Hall ,we are on one wall the layout in the middle and Squires on the other wall.and another layout is on the other end shame but it canít be helped .
