The traffic today was pretty awful as there seemed to have been some horsey event on nearby like, maybe, a Jim Karna as there were slow moving 'orse boxes all over the place ::)
I spent a happy couple of hours at the show meeting up with several members like (in no particular order) BobRo, Mainline, Les Nehrlich, Trains4tea, steve6331 and tunneroner61. Apologies if I have missed anyone out.
Some very good layouts, and particularly pleasing to see an 11 coach Pendolino running on Burshaw North Western. (Pics will follow tomorrow as I've not been feeling too well today and am a bit knactired.
Usual high prices on traders stands and not a lot of N gauge about so @Caz (http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=202) no luck in finding your coach. Indeed, one trader was asked if he had any N gauge and his reply was "I knew I'd have a smaller stand this year so I didn't bring any N gauge"

More to follow...........

Like NN, I really enjoyed the show. N gauge was very well represented with some lovely layouts, my favourite layout of the show though was an EM gauge L&Y based one

Thanks for the pix Mick.

The Barclay Road motleys left to right are French Neil a new driver under training (he needs to drive on the right side), me myself with a brew and proud owner of the layout, then my mate Gary back home in Scouse land (sad Liverpool supporter)

Good to talk to you and hope you keep well, Norman (there's not many of us left)
