I'll be there early Sat afternoon, so that's giving notice to all other visitors to go Sunday instead :-[

Just got myself a pass out to go Saturday afternoon.  Short bloke with a grey goatee beard and flat hat, if anyone wants to say hello.
Cheers, Trev.

On my way!

A quick :hellosign: and intro - I've not had a model railway since an OO layout 25 years ago, and just started building an N layout a few weeks ago.

No doubt there will be lots of :helpneededsign: over the coming months because :confusedsign: but in the meantime it's time to start the car and set the satnav!

As ever the show was small but very well proportioned :D
Great to meet up with fellow forum members 'outofgauge', 'mainline' and 'geoff' along with Les Neherlich (NGF and Preston MRC). I left at about 13.00hrs so I'm sorry if I missed others and I hope 'Victor' above enjoyed himself.
On my shopping list today was a pack of Metcalfe stone walling (PN-901), a pack of metal fishplates to replenish my supplies, a bottle of Peco Power Lube PL-64(thanks Farish) and a wallwart to convert 240v down to 15v for the LED dimmer gizmo very kindly sent me by Malc. Pleased to say all were successfully obtained, and I can't see the trader trying to sell a Dapol class 22 for 138.95 shifting that in a month of Sundays when they can be obtained so cheaply :no:
Sadly Direct Train Supplies were not in attendance as I wanted a length of warm white LEDs.
Photos are a bit thin on the ground as 'Burghead' (Bob & Gareth Rowlands) has been featured by me before, which left Millfield Yard (Pauline Mckenna and 'Bridgford' (Alistair Knox)

Millfield Yard




Bridgford (just the 2 ends as the station was blocked by a bad derailment which seemed to take ages to be sorted by the breakdown crew)
