I may have to start a new layout thread

Sounds very ominous...

Crewe works or Carnforth to showcase all your loco fleet?  :bounce:

What Loco fleet, I only have 50 or so (just in case the Domestic Overlord reads this)

I can explain it to you...

...but I can't understand it for you.

Well I guess I better start posting updates on the new layout on the "Lugsdale Road - LMS" thread, I have actually made a little progress :)

@paulprice
The following are actually going ahead:-

Aug 11/12th Leyland (probably a bit tight)
Sept 15/16 Fleetwood
Oct 6/7th Wigan
Nov 10/11th Alsager

Others that usually occur but I haven't seen any details of:-

Sept Blackburn & East Lancs - Now being held Nov 10/11th
Oct Warrington - Being held Oct 20/21st
Oct Hazel Grove - Being held Oct 27/28th
Nov Pendle Forest - Being held Nov 17/18th
Dec Poynton

You could have a word with the organisers and see if you can either get your layout booked or be a reserve if you are happy to do so.

Edit:- Have done some homework on the UK Model Shop site and it looks like all the second batch are seeking layouts

Should I sell off Foster Street or should I just keep it?

Presumably it's in prisonstorage at present but I reckon you know the day after it's sold you'll get an invite to a show with it. Only you knows whether there is room for it in your next abode.

Well if it is banged up it couldn't go anyway!

Think about it when it gets parole. Perhaps you could refresh it - add an extra board, convert to Great Western, or something?

Sell off Foster Street?! NO!!! Keep it for the moment, exhibitions come and go and I'm sure that Foster Street will get its revival on the exhibition circuit in the not so distant future - it is a great layout and one that I would really like to see (believe it or not, along with its builder!). :)

Don't sell it until you are able to run trains on your new layout.

Best regards,


Joe
