Always good to see snow layouts. They're not modelled often!  :thumbsup:

hey all, looks like i can finally get round to posting on here again! its amazing how you can get so wrapped up in stuff you dont have time for the simple things!

i have been able to keep the facebook page updated but finding enough time to do it on here seems to escape me!

so....LONG OVERDUE update!

We attended the N Gauge Show this year, our first show since we revamped the layout AGAIN! (yes it now looks different! LESS SNOW!).

I am waiting for photos which my friend took over the weekend, and i have been asked to make an article for "N Gauge Now", so that should be interesting!

But for those who saw us at TINGS, i feel i need to aplogise for the layout looking and running rather poorly....

For those who know, we are based in a historic listed building at Bowes Railway in Gateshead, which is non-temperature controlled. So over the past 4 months we have tried building the layout in a room which averaged 35-40degree C. This actually left us not being able to work on it for a full month as track kept expanding, scenics wouldnt set properly plus we had a fear of boards warping...

To then make things harder, only 2 of us essentially work on the layout up at Bowes, (depsite there being 4 operators). and my good friend Ian who helps me an awful lot was unfortunatly diagnosed with severe prostate cancer, which then ruled him out for the final 4 weeks leading up to the show and the show itself, which killed any hope of finishing scenics in time as i was away for 3 of the final weeks on holiday.

so apologies for the tardiness and poor performance, but safe to say its been a hellacious 4 months leading up to the show!

We now have 4 mondays and one open weekend to finish the scenics, make a couple adjustments before our next show in Hartlepool! i will try my best to keep this updated but forgive me if i dont!

cheers

Paul
