@Newportnobby

 Mick,
If coming from the south, is It better  to come off the M6 at J31A or carry on up to the M55 turn off please?
Cheers, Trev.

At least Northern Rail's running full Saturday services after many months of industrial action!

@Newportnobby

 Mick,
If coming from the south, is It better  to come off the M6 at J31A or carry on up to the M55 turn off please?

It is much easier to find from the M55 junction.

Take the M55 exit and leave the M55 at the first junction. (A6 Preston).
Turn left onto the A6 And then turn left off the A6 into St Vincents Road.
College entrance is on the right.

Hope that helps a little, sorry Mick for hijacking your question! :)

Cheers
Mark

Got to the show just in time to meet Lil Chris at the paydesk :D
Good to have a chat with him and to see Tunneroner61, Les Nehrlich, a couple of lads from the Leyland Cub and, of course, the chaps on the 'North of England Line'.

I'll have more news about the NoEL when I follow this up with the pics but I have 17 of 'em and have to resize them all :scowl:

Failed to get what little shopping I needed so popped round to Transport Models afterwards (last day of their 20% off marked prices sale) and found everything I wanted. :)

Yes good to bump into NN and meet Lil Chris for the first time. I thought it a very decent show, tho perhaps a little too many present day type layouts for my taste. I'll try Rainhill tomorrow for some N gauge hydraulic heaven!! I'm always impressed with Steve Farmers Lymebrook yard. Amazing modelling to fit it in the space and look very realistic.
NoEL is great too. I did like Loughborough too - rail blue rules OK!!!
Looking forward to NNs pix later.

cheers Norman

Firstly the news about the North of England Line. @Mike J @GB No.9  please correct me if I have anything wrong.
NoEL has one more outing and is then being 'retired', to be replaced by new layout 'Scarlington' which is booked for its inaugural outing at the Falkirk show this year @Lawrence (make sure you have your camera there!). Scarlington will be a foot longer than NoEL and is set in the BR Blue era, and from the pics I've seen looks to be another cracker although BR Blue does nothing for me :no:
NoEL will go into storage and may venture forth again if folks start asking where it's disappeared to.

And so to the pics from the show. I've included some more of NoEL as my fond farewell to a layout I've admired for years :goodbye:

Coketown










Lymebrook Yard




Two Seasons (dunno why it was called thus)




Upper Cwmtwych




North of England Line










There may have been some layouts in other gauges there as well

Good set of photos (yes, I am still viewing them from a hospital bed, unfortunately). Cheers, Mick!  :beers:

I like the summer and winter one, and interesting to see an old railway turned into a walking trail complete with viaduct on Coketown.

You don't see that modelled very often!

Hi everyone, Nice to see you @Newportnobby Mick and meet and @tunneroner61 and a few other guys. Yes the viaduct on coke town was nicely modeled, I thought pity no trains on it though, you can't beat a good viaduct, that's why I kept mine from my old layout. Please to hear you managed to fill your shopping list Mick. I Just before I left I was talking to a guy in a blue coat, I thought it was you Mick till he turned round. I was pointing at a Morris minor Traveler on Limebrookyard, I told him thats what I leaned to drive in, anyway it was nice to see you.


@Bealman get better mate, pleased you are enjoying Micks pics.

Thanks Chris!

The game plan was to make one final trip back near the end of this year (I threatened to drive Mick to TINGS), but what effect this extended hospital gig will have on that is currently an unknown.

If it does happen, hopefully we could meet!  :beers:

Regards,  George

Very many thanks, Mick, for these excellent photographs.

I found that I went back several times to look at Two Seasons; what a neat little layout.

Perhaps your photography is flattering it, but it certainly looks nice.

Lymebrook Yard is also most appealing.

Thanks again for taking the trouble to post these photographs.

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.
