Well done, chaps! That was an excellent little show. Only small, but at least everything was interesting. It was the first time I have managed to attend - until this year the domestic authorities have always commandeered the car on a Saturday morning. I made a couple of small purchases, including an old ABS Beaver kit of an LNER J63 which I was pleased to get, even though it is a strictly Rule 1 purchase, and added to the pile of Things To Do.

Looking forward to the new, improved show next year.

Cheers,

Chris

Glad we could supply you with the kit ,You will have to bring it along and show us the finished loco ,We often wonder how the kits we sell turn out its ALLWAYS nice to see the end results.
Look on the B H E website to see what shows we are going to this year.
I think your right this show was a very nice little show and every time I had a wander round  there was ALLWAYS things moving on every layout .

A very enjoyable show.  I thought "Stoughton Road" was an excellent example of N Gauge in a small space.  This must surely encourage anyone who has doubts about having space to model in N Gauge.

Thanks, guys - it's always good to know that people have enjoyed the show as much as we enjoyed a day playing trains.  I'm just back from the curry house with a record 25 club members, friends and wives attending.  A good finish to a fun - if tiring - day.  Cheers, Jon

Very good point!

A reason to put the J23 to the top of the to-do pile.

I also have one of your Craven class 105 DMU kits to build, but that is in the pile marked "Looks Difficult"!

Cheers,

Chris

Papyrus I must have ago at building one of our D M U kits myself, I keep looking at them ,I dont think its the building that puts me off but the painting and lining .But I will pluck up courage one day.
It was nice to meet you and put a face to a name .
Thoroughly enjoyed the show but I was knackered when I got home , I think it was mainly due to the sun in my eyes nearly all the way home not the actual show.
Look forward to next years EVEN bigger and better show.

One of our members took a video of the show and posted it on YouTube:

Have a look and see what you missed if you didn't get to visit!  I'll be posting photographs on the ESNG blog through next week.  Jon

Thanks for the vid. I was starting to think there must be a shortage of cameras in that neck of the woods :D

Snitchthebudgies  camera broke when he took a photo of me on the B H E stand just to prove to Mirlees that I was wide awake .

Cameras must have got tougher.  In survived to record that not only is Bob awake, but Ray is SMILING... 8)

All (well, not quite all) will be revealed later in the week when I have time to update the blog.  I've spent this afternoon trying to keep awake.
