I'm the taller of the two handsome gentlemen on the left hand side, next to the chief cat-herder. He must be, as that's the skill set required to organise a NGF photo.

Thanks for the mugshots and it's good to put some faces to names.
Sadly the days of 20-30 NGF members in a mugshot at TINGS seems a thing of the past :(
What that is a reflection of I couldn't begin to guess at.

I also know that the tall fella pulling off the ZZ Top beard is Gary Burcombe, nice chap, his sons is a RedSox fan, he was marshalling his grandkids.

The very polite well turned out gentleman who gave us our show guide waiting in the queue. That's 2 people off the forum I'd recognise. Mr Ando the other as I've seen him once or twice on tele!!  :o

This year's TINGS proved rather expensive for me,  and not because I bought much.

My car broke down on the way home on the M1 then 3 days later a speeding ticket dropped through the door, somehow managed to do 70 in a 60 zone again on the M1

Interesting point to note, the online photograph showed my car under the gantry showing the speed display, given that the speed camera would have been mounted on the gantry, either directly over the lane or to one side, i wonder were the camera was hidden that took the photograph?

Still first ticket in 45 years of driving is not that bad.

The two pictures of the stand: both show Tim Hitch of course, presently recovering from his eye operation so looks at present a little battle scarred in comparison with the photo. In the first photo of the stand stood next to him is the new N Gauge Society Chairman Philip Griffin in glasses and a red shirt and in the second photo in front of the counter in the blue shirt is yours truly.
Diane Tape features in the main pictures stood next to Skyline - Adam Williams. Adrian Brimble (owner and operator of Letherbridge) also attends in a black shirt & cheerful expression.

I didn't honestly look at what time I left, so I either missed it by not noticing the time, or by having left!

Cazadoom on the right of the Sunday photos too, in the black polo shirt and shorts.
