Re: The Sheaf Valley Railway - Next Stop Peterborough!!!

Evening all,

A fantastic weekend at TINGS! Great to meet everyone! The layout performed really well all weekend with only one loco having a minor running problem. The layout seemed to get a lot of attention and there was always someone watching.


We had a total of 4 sound fitted models running throughout the weeked: DubDee, Ivatt 2MT, Class 108 and a 4F. The latter was purchased at 09:30 on the Saturday and was sound fitted by the time the show opened!!


We had a number of guest operators and visiting engines over the weekend so lets start with the NGF members! Saturday saw Chris take to the controls....


His EMT HST (that used to be mine!) was running on a railtour from Old Warren!


A DRS Class 20 also visited


Chris's Teenage Spirit Class 60 also made an appearance.

Next Portland-Docks lent us his 4MT 76084 for a bit on Saturday so we had an excuse for a 4MT double header!



Sunday say Toneeze/Tonye take to the controls, this was on the condition that he could 'play' with the Sound fitted DubDee!


There were also some special guest visitors. For the Saturday Dapol/Robert Shrives lent us their first paint sample of the Red Stripe Class 56.



On the Sunday Modellbahn Union lent us one of their LTD A4's.



And finally we had a brief visit of the first running Dapol Schools. I want one!!!


And to finish a couple more random photos taken throughout the day.



Next stop, Peterborough!

Cheers,

Ollie

Very enjoyable day last Saturday and thanks for letting me take over the controls and indeed the layout with my modern image!! I did take a few pics as well which are part of my TINGS album on flickr, but here are the Sheaf pics including "THAT" coach (though why I didn't take any photos of my stock on there is beyond comprehension...):-

Ollie

I think your layout looks fantastic, I have started at the begginning and am now at page 7, and a long way to go. I will look at the other pages in due course, keep up the good work, me I'm a semi retired begginner and loving this Model railway thing, your layout has given me some insights as to how to perform some of the tasks I need to do.

Some pics of Sheaf @ Peterborough, and yes I remembered to take some photos of the modern image invasion this time! Great to see and operate the layout again.











It's that coach again!!

Re: The Sheaf Valley Railway - Lets end it with a BIG one!

Evening all,

Thanks for the photos Chris! Was great to see you again at Peterborough. And talking of Peterborough, I never posted a show update! We'll kick things off with the standard pre-show snap (the one and only photo i took the whole weekend!).


Excellent show, well spaced put so the hall didn't seem crowded but a nice flow of people throughout the day. Layout and stock ran well all day, the only teething trouble was that the chap who was giving me a hand disappeared for a good chunk of the show! Great to see many Forum members there and once again Sheaf was flooded with visiting stock! Chris ran some of his Modern stock, my old EMT 153 making a welcome return. Paul Chetter kindly lent us a sound fitted duchess for some of the show. And thanks to Callum and Steve (APA Park/Midsummer End) for the use of a 14xx plus Autocoach, Sound Class 20 and a Merchant Navy with a rake of Maunsell Coaches!

In stock news I have finally got round to chipping up one of my 08 Shunters, so we'll have a station pilot for Warley!

In other news, It is now very likely that I will have to withdraw Sheaf from Doncaster next Feb! with this being the case I am treating Warley as the last show! So that means that in just under two weeks Sheaf will have exhibited at it's last show!........ Well unless it's new owner decides they want to keep showing it. Talking of new owner, one has yet to be found so the layout is still currently up for sale.

So at least I'm ending Sheaf's run on the show circuit with a big one. Can't get much bigger than Warley!!!!!

Cheers,

Ollie

Yes, you could fit Warley into one of the 2 halls there.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.
