Good to see Alastair, Neil (outofgauge), Terry (mainline), Bob & Gareth Rowland and Les Nehrlich this morning. For whatever reason this show seems to be getting a bit 'stale' to me but I can't put my finger on why :-\ After a fairly manky coffee and sausage barm I went forth with the camera.

Always good to meet up with you too Mick -funny you should say something about the show -as Terry and myself were saying the same thing -unless they change the format that will be our last visit for a while -as for the "coffee" they should try using some new beans for each cup -not the same for ten ?*&%$ (I'm a coffee lover and that if I'd had more than one would have put me off for life !) I'm also sorry for the public -if a trader thinks somebody is gonna pay 125 for a Farish loco then it's all over -no good buying at rrp then putting 20% Mark up for yourself -sorry not for me ( and I suspect not for a lot ? ) Any way called at Hattons on the way home to get over it ( they've bought a job lot of American CSX locos -some Katos at 50 for as new condition ) so all is well !
Regards

Neil

I was there on Saturday morning. I felt some of the layouts were still setting up as they seemed to be fiddling with the locos, perhaps not enough time allowed by the college for setting up. There were some very interesting layouts which Nobby has photos of. I was especially impressed with the Hironchio layout although the trains seemed to run very fast. A few more layouts would have made it more interesting and the dominance of the large G scale layout took up a lot of the centre with only one loco running when I was there, they were still priming the other steam engines. My fault for arriving just after the exhibition started.
I had a coffee and bacon barm but my camera gimbal case knocked the coffee over so I didn't taste it, (I was not too sure of it when I bought it). The bacon barm was good.
It is the first time I have not found anything to buy at an exhibition.

Hi Nobby & outofgauge,

it would help the organisers if you were more specific about why you think the show is "stale" and what aspects of the "format" need to change to make it better for you. Am sure they would appreciate this feedback.

Would that be you?

Sounds to me like the coffee needs looking at!

Nobby, That would be Peter Dibben or alternatively Chris Tungate. Both I believe are members of N Gauge Society.
