Yes, itís changed scale and region, plus we have potential problems in where the layout is to be located at the show. Come along and find out what happens!

See you at Farnham

Don't know about change of region-depends on how much of my stock is used........ :D

For those that are not aware, James St is in Modeller for September as 'Railway of the month' with photos taken at the Bristol show earlier this year.

See you tomorrow.

Iím looking forward to seeing James St again we will be opposite the layout with the B H Enterprises stand so will be able to see it for both days I think the issue with the location is that the layout will only be viewable on three sides due to the width of the Hall and another layout on one side ,but we will see when we get there . Rob the exhibition manager has been organising the show for more years than he cares to remember, he is a very nice guy and is organising some club  members to help Ray unload and set up the stand on Saturday as I am not allowed to do any lifting at all for at least two weeks after my Operation on Monday so if you see me just sitting down itís NOT ME BEING LAZY just for health reasons I donít want to bust the stitches .

I'm sure we can manage to post some photos too, we still have the Bristol ones to publish, we were waiting to see what the modeler was using first tbough, so there may well be a bumper crop of photos to publish, BUT if we are only three sided there may well be constraints on what can be photographed. Photo update later on in the week.
 Some one will have to have a crash course in shunting those vans!!!!

Regards Stuart

Evening all
   As promised photos.
These photos are from Bristol, sorry for the delay but it was felt that the modeller should have some exclusivity. I will apologise in advance if any of the pictures bear a resemblance to those in the modeller, I haven't seen the mag as I neither subscribe or purchase. Further photos will appear on the website in due course.


































 Southwolds are next to do but not tonight.

Regards Stuart

Many thanks for another set of excellent photos. of this superb layout. Good to see part of the train of international ferry vans in the first photo. (I do hope that an article on building them will appear.)

The ferry train is owned by Martyn, i am sure he can provide more details and i think there may even be a thread dedicated to at least part of the ferry train on this forum somewhere. I should also have put a comment on the photo of the dock yard, the boat itself is of interest but the tram is far more interesting, all credit goes to Martyn, its a white metal kit, B&H Enterprises for those interested, motorised quite an achievement itself but Martyn has also converted it too DCC!!!!

  Back too todays post.
Photo update from Southwold last weekend, more photos will appear on the website in due course.















 There maybe other photos of the ferry train on the "Saneham Tey" thread, as Martyn runs stock on both layouts, possibly a future project would be to photo the train in more detail.

Clicking on an image will increase the size of the photo.

Regards Stuart

Many thanks, Stuart, for the answer and a photo. of Martyn's superb ferry van train. I recall that Maryn did give some basic details of how he scatchbuilt the vans but I'd love a detailed 'Idiot' Guide" so I can have go. (I did buy the Ferry Wagon book he recommended.)

The "Toby the Tram Engine" model looks excellent, too. A close-up photo., please.
