Having woken up to the fact that Photobucket have changed their t's & c's, I've loaded a few pics onto the forum. They can (Hopefully) be found at http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=gallery;su=user;cat=3092;u=298

Can someone let me know if the link works please?

Southbridge's next (and possibly last) outing is to Croydon on 7th & 8th October.

I should be there in the morning, but it's my youngest boys birthday party, so not sure yet.   :-\  Look forward to saying hello again if I do make it.

Hello Graham,

You've created a beautiful layout there.

Is it possible for you to add some more photos to your gallery - I'd like to see more of the track/point arrangements if possible

Cheers

Phil

Don't forget we will be at Tinkers Park this weekend https://www.tinkerspark.com/home/model-railways-plus/ refers.

Looking at the weather forecast, can everyone please bring us something cool to eat or drink  :beers:. I'm not sure who is going to survive best, the layout or the operators  8)

Safe home from Tinkers Park. It's an interesting place.

The layout coped well with the heat but not so well alongside their live steam layout. The oil vapour got everywhere and it caused four traction tyres to be thrown. The rubber absorbs the oil which in turn expands - not fun.

We also had to clean the track every couple of hours. I've now updated my notes to exhibition managers with the following;

IMPORTANT NOTE
Due to problems and damage I have experienced when sharing a hall with live steam locomotives/engines I regret I am no longer prepared to share a hall where live steam locomotives/engines are being operated. Please bear this in mind when planning your exhibition. I will fully understand if you decide not to accept my layout because of this condition.

Next weekend Southbridge will be at the Dartford model railway exhibition (Saturday and Sunday). This will be it's last outing for 2018 as I have to concentrate on getting my latest project complete for 2019.
