Not as claustrophobic as a long haul flight from Australia!

See y'all next year  :beers:

Yeah right!

We all know you fly Club, stop pretending to be one of the Cattle Class.

Missing out this year due to family illness. Had to cancel flights; accommodation, Britrail pass, etc. Looking forward to updates from Kato and Revolution. Also anyone else in the market. Missing out on steam trains and real ales sometimes at the same time   :(
Of course pictures from the show will be gratefully viewed  :thankyousign:

I just printed my ticket out, and intend to go on Sunday.

I don't handle crowds very well, but Sundays are from past experience, manageable for me.  I get very claustrophic.

I'm assuming the usual backpack wearing, sweaty, "anything that isn't 1950s steam must be crap" brigade will be there, but I don't let them upset me.

Very much looking forward to it, having missed last years' event.

Can you pay at the door or do you HAVE to get advanced tickets?
Cheers, Trev.

You can definitely pay on the door.  A lot of people do.  I watch them as I zoom past, waving my prepaid ticket at the guys on the door!!!

to quote “the usual backpack wearing, sweaty, "anything that isn't 1950s steam must be crap" brigade will be there …”

the fact is shows like this can be busy is one argument. people tend to pay a visit whichever day suits them and their needs. the usual backpack wearing sweaty brigade may be valid but people like yo buy bargains, items, their needs. a polite excuse me i find or a tap on the shoulder works and if i see something i like i place my bag in front of me,  or just ask the person whose backpack is  in my way excuse me. as for "anything that isn't 1950s steam must be crap" brigade  - i model 70s - 90s each to their own, its a label. i began to like steam layouts / steam because its the transition era, railway history and

a preference. there are the modern enthusiasts / opeators. its more to do with the quality of the layout argument, if presented welll , stock runs, locos runs, operators are willing to speak and share in their model / hobby - thats what catches my attention / interest. this is no editorial

but each to their own. some love modern, some prefer transition period, some pre 1948, we have to be tolerant, help each other, share ideas. hope helps

I bet there'll be many visitors present when Mr Kato arrives. It'll be the hottest event of the year in N scale.
However I'm not likely to make it to TINGS this time but please keep us all updated!

I had no idea this would happen, but I'm going back to the UK on the 12th for a bereavement/memorial on the 13th, and I think I could make a trip to TINGS early on Sunday the 15th.

i've never been - would a couple of hours be enough to at least get a flavor for the event? I can't spend the whole day, but if I get there at opening time would it make the drive from Southampton worth it? Also, if anyone else from the forum is there, is there a "Meet & Greet" spot? I'm an NGF member, do they have a stand?

So many questions ...

N-Train should be in it's usual place, but without Electra this year. Adam made an announcement to say he had a previous arrangement for the weekend.

I am still recovering from my recent operation, so please be gentle with me and my wife Dawn.

There will be some new announcements...................

Plus, I will be have a Red Spot BGOF Sale of my old 'retail' products and some other selected items. First come, first served.

I'll be there with my layout. Running with 1963 stock one day and 1968 stock the other. For most exhibitions its just a matter of giving all the locos a quick service about a week before the exhibition. For TINGS exhibitors need to also make sure they have a supply of drinks and a sandwich prepared - but never mind I'm happy to be part of TINGS.

Lets hope its a great show, as usual, with a good attendance. Say "Hi" when you get to Little Aller Junction (stand J). It will be either me or my brother running the layout. We take it in turns and sometimes we run it together.
