Southbridge had another good weekend away. I've no idea if this will work but here's a video that was taken https://www.instagram.com/p/BnxwvYTF-Ev/?hl=en&taken-by=harrisonbrownmodels

It certainly does work.
An excellent video of a lovely layout.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Next weekend, Saturday 11th May, Southbridge will be at Haywards Heath. This might be it's last show as it's now ten years old, and as I develop my own personal defect list I'm starting to find it difficult to lug around.

See you there?

Enjoyed another good exhibition with Southbridge yesterday. The layout is now ten years old and I was thinking it was perhaps time to think about retiring it. However we received a lot of complimentary comments along with potentially two more invites so perhaps I'm being overly critical.

Safe home from Tinkers Park. It's an interesting place.

The layout coped well with the heat but not so well alongside their live steam layout. The oil vapour got everywhere and it caused four traction tyres to be thrown. The rubber absorbs the oil which in turn expands - not fun.

We also had to clean the track every couple of hours. I've now updated my notes to exhibition managers with the following;

IMPORTANT NOTE
Due to problems and damage I have experienced when sharing a hall with live steam locomotives/engines I regret I am no longer prepared to share a hall where live steam locomotives/engines are being operated. Please bear this in mind when planning your exhibition. I will fully understand if you decide not to accept my layout because of this condition.

If the live steam locos do that to the layout it makes you wonder what you are also breathing in all day long....
