If you think the grass is greener on the other side, then you're just not flocking right!

This is always a nice friendly show, but unless you go by train the car parking can be difficult.
Also you need to be able to climb stairs to get to some of the stalls, so its not wheelchair friendly.
I hope to go this year.
It's nice and local.

Very true, we try hard to make it a very friendly and welcoming show and do our best to help people and answer any questions.

There is a car park at the back of the Tesco Express, turn right off of Kings Street just before the railway bridge.

https://en.parkopedia.co.uk/parking/Sileby,%20Leicestershire,%20LE12%207RX/?arriving=201902091900&leaving=201902092100

There is just the stage that is not wheelchair friendly, with only one secondhand stall on there.

I hope this is of help.

Gary.

Yes, agree with the above, a great little show were I always manage to turn up something of interest!! You can park in a small industrial area just before the hall on the right as well.

I will go this morning - about 11ish I guess. And then on to my favourite Anstey shop.
I had no idea there was another southern modeller in Leicestershire :)

I will give you a PM with my phone no

You can blame my dad for that Bob, OVB all the way, he's trekking over from Worcestershire this morning and planned to take him to Anstey, I only called in last Saturday, first time ever, I'd know of it for 4years!!

We will see you later  :beers:

You will recognise me as the short bald bespectacled guy with the leather jacket.
When overseas I can pass for Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Turkish...

I will not have a rose in my lapel....nor a Class B tank!

Didn't see Craig but was parted with £26 of useful odds and ends from BHE and a £65 Bachmann Farish 8F (China production) to donate its chassis to a Z class tank kit.
Happy people at the show, and the star was obviously a T gauge model of the Forth Bridge.
Only had 1 2 car DMU plying back and forth (pun) but that surely made the bridge seem even bigger!

We did get there Bob, I too spent a fair few quid with BHE and depleted half his stock of Headcode discs, just what I wanted.

Show was a lot busier then I was expecting  :thumbsup: was hoping to blow a fortune at Booklaw but nothing for us, or that we hadn't got.

Roll on the next one  :beers:
