Hi Gang,

Pete (from EGLM) and I will be there at Glasgow show.
We too, missed it last year due to work commitments, so really looking forward to this year.
It will be my last show for 4 months as work takes me to a small set of islands in the South Atlantic to continue the day job.....

Later,
Stu from EGDL

I wonder where that could be :hmmm:

On a separate note, does anyone know if a special commission in N is being made by anyone for the show, like the Tunnocks van was?

The BBC have a News Scotland item about this show this morning.

Warning: the main part of their article is about an ‘orribly oversized layout! :o

But all publicity for Railway modelling is good publicity. :thumbsup:

Sadly this show is too far away for me. :(

Great publicity for model railways in general though, lovely models albeit the 'wrong' size...

Hi Gang;

Had an excellent time over the weekend at Glasgow show. Usual varied travel itinerary to get there and back coupled with some purchases, bumping into old friends and a few beverages along the way.

It was great to get an update from Revolution on all the ongoing projects, especially the 320/321 with a new coupling system to require only one DCC chip, news of 92 production and possible new liveries to come in real life.

Managed to get all (most) of the required shopping with a couple of impulse buys too, so quite happy with the haul.

Had a great chat with the Accurascale guys who are working on R&D for the Mk5s with Revolution. I was especially taken with their 4mm Rawie Buffer Stops, which I was canvassing with both them and Revolution for a reduction to N Gauge. Whether that will happen will, of course, be a business led decision by the guys.

As for layouts, some could definately be better run...with long gaps of inactivity. I was especially taken with Wellpark, a suitably Glaswegian setting, well executed. Farbine TMD in 4mm was also nice as was the 7mm shed layout set in semi darkness.

It's all over for me for another year...need to pencil in the 2020 dates at work very soon.

Yep, great stuff, thank you. I keep saying I will go to it, but each year something crops up to put the kibosh on it!


If anyone had a chance to speak to anyone on the Bachmann stand, is there any further news on the 8F? Are they still on for Q4?
