Mercigís ROG 37s tempt me every year, my resolve is certainly weakening!  :worried:

I made the proprietor laugh by commenting on how having 4 such works of art on display is just plain showing off really  ;D 

One day I will have a piece from Mercig, hopefully before he retires!

It's a dream of mine to own one and to find that he's much younger than myself made that dream more tangible - I'll probably expire before he retires. :D

Hi All,

My thoughts on TINGS this year.

Was it me or did there seem to be less Layouts this year than last??

However I think the quality was much better than last year, only let down by that abomination that is Sutton St.Annes by @37058 !! Only joking Anthony it's a great layout  :P :P :P

Certainly were very few 'bargains' about, in fact I didn't buy any rolling stock this year, just some wheels from Bob at @NTrain some GPS22.5 Bogies for my Warwells & Warflats from the NGS stand and a Book about Diesels & Electrics in the 70's & 80's. Was looking for some Farish/Kernow UCV China Clay Wagons, but after a long conversation with Steve Farmer it looks like I may not need them after all, as it seems that the UCV's very rarely ventured out of Cornwall, so for the Clayliner I actually need OWV's which I think are on 10' Roller Bearing chassis, anyway I digress.

I also seemed to spend a lot of my time nattering to friends old & new, I didn't manage to get an awful lot done on the DEMU stand but had a great couple of days with Jo Alder & Stu Wright.

So hopefully we'll all met up again same place next year.

Cheers

Neal.

Itís one thing for the proprietor to have so many, you want to ask @Cazadoom how many heís got!  :goggleeyes: they are absolutely stunning, just one of those models which really epitomises Ianís skill, particularly when you see all the subtleties of the different ones.

Hi All,

Well it was a good weekend seeing the same OLD faces and meeting new ones if not a little knackering just ask @Only Me since it seems we have a reputation to up hold!  :beers:

I had a chance to flirt round and look at the layouts and other stalls picking up some of my wanted list on the way round (word of advice make sure you use the solo account and not the joint account if your other half is like mine  :goggleeyes: )

@Calnefoxile please take that picture down this is a family forum you three look like something off crime watch  :P

@Cazadoom you know I am going to get one of them 37s if you keep trying to upset me!

Apparently  some members missed the mug shots as they said there wasnít an announcement made ,I did get at least two on Saturday and Sunday but I admit that their `TANOY SYSTEM IS CRAP,  I couldnít even hear the safety announcement they make every morning before the public get in properly  .That has been the problem every year that Iíve tried to organise it I also put the time and place on the Forum and on the Facebook page ,
I canít do much more ,also of course a lot of members were operating their layouts and so couldnít leave .
Maybe NEXT YEAR someone else could TRY and organise a photo shoot of operators before or after the show .
Nice to meet up with those that did manage to make it though .
