Unfortunately due to health issues (walking on crutches and doing my best pirate "oh, aye, me maties, dubloons, pieces of eight, pieces of eight!"), my initial plans of getting there this year have unfortunately evaporated.

See you next year!

Reports and photos of this year's event are of course mandatory for any forum members attending.  ;)

Has Mr. Kato got an English wife?

Where are you going with this?

 :hmmm:

It distinctly states Mr. Kato will be attending the show this year on both days. "It is possible he may even have something of British origin with him"

I'd heard rumours of Kato doing an 800, on the basis they were one of the few companies that could pay royalties to Hornby to get around the daft Hitachi licencing (or take them to court over it), plus it has a degree of commonality with their "White Sonic" (IIRC) EMU.

Could be very interesting.

Gotcha! Didn't twig that one.

Yeah, it is a shame, Jerry. It would have been great to wander around with you and put an Antipodean slant on things!!  :beers:

Im sure george you would appreciate tings photos. Chris. Just as mick newport nobby has asked. Few of us will find a pub and raise a pint for you after layout viewing and bargain hunting

No German/Austrian contingent  coming over this year?  I see nothing in the layout listings, and to be honest it looks like N Club International are involved in a show in Göppingen the same weekend.   That's a shame.

All booked for myself and the eldest boy, same B&B as previous two years (has had exhibitors staying at it both times too), same outward bound train from Marylebone on Friday evening (18.15 Kidderminster) which is 68 hauled, and my son will be especially pleased to find out that as the Chiltern main line is closed on Sunday we are returning via Coventry from where he gets a ride on a Pendolino (i'm not bothered tbh, I find them a little claustrophobic but comfortable enough).

Not as claustrophobic as a long haul flight from Australia!

See y'all next year  :beers:

@Bealman , ah no, I'll give you that one  ;D, though their tiny windows do give an experience nearer to a plane than your average MK3 coach.....

Hope your recovery continues well.
