Deeping MRC show in Stamford cancelled today
« on: May 18, 2019, 09:44:31 AM »
This is horrible. Due to a break in overnight, the show is cancelled. It sounds  like every layout and stand has been trashed and arrests have been made.

Thoughts go out to all the exhibitors, traders and Deeping MRC.

Words fail me right now.

The Police apparently have caught the Idiots that did it 2 15 year old boys, They will probably be given a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again you naughty boys. My sympathies go to all who have lost years of work, their source of income and their time, I feel the 2 culprits should be but in the stocks and left there for several weeks so we can all go and vent our outrage.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

One of my worst fears when leaving my layout overnight. My thoughts go out to the organisers and everyone supporting the event.

Hopefully everything was insured although I fear this may be the first time the insurance process has been tested. There could be lessons to be learnt here.

With regard to the two vandals, I'd best keep quiet.  :censored: At least they have been caught.

What the...... !  :veryangry:

Words fail me.

My thoughts are entirely with the organisers, vendors, and most of all, layout owners and builders.

Actually, I do have other thoughts but they are not printable here. :censored: :veryangry:

To my mind the parents of such feral brats should be the ones to pay :veryangry2:

Police should escort the stall and layout owners to the homes of these ba***rds, and be allowed to help themselves to whatever they want.  After that, they can smash the rest up of the homes with baseball bats.

No apologies whatsoever if I get a warning for this post, but to read this story has made me livid.  I know this is not model railway orientated, but in 2011 I  helped a local church set up a hall with crafts, and a similar thing happened with three 14 year olds.  They got the usual slap on the wrist and no punishment.  I can't explain how it feels to have hard work and effort destroyed by boneheads with nothing better to do with their time, and no intelligence to realise the consequences of what they are doing.

It's a very sad indictment of the times we live in. What possible pleasure can the "scallies" get from such mindlessness. I agree with the idea of the parents having to pay for the damage. It is one way to "try" to force them into keeping a closer control of their offspring.  :veryangry:

I have now read an article on the incident and I am genuinely heartbroken.

I cannot even begin to describe how I would feel if this situation.

It has been mentioned on Facebook, and I know finances are only half the story, but if a “Go fund me” or similar is set up I would gladly contribute. This hobby means so much to me, I want to help my fellow modellers.

Picked this up on Facebook this morning. It must be every exhibition manager's worst nightmare to have something like this happen.

Like others I am at a loss to understand how the mindless morons who did this got any pleasure out of it. I am glad the perpetrators were caught and hopefully will be charged and punished to the full extent the law allows.

From what we read in the the news it does seem that we are overrun with feral brats like this, but I think it is worth saying that the vast majority of kids/youth are still decent and honest and this kind of action does not reflect them in general.

Although money is never going to compensate for the hours of hard work and commitment put into the models, it is to be hoped that the insurance will at least allow those who have the resolve to start again, and I agree that some kind of "Just Giving" support from the railway modelling community at large would send message of solidarity that I too would happily contribute to.
