SWMBO picked up some bits'n'bobs in the B'ham branch of Iain Allen; nothing N (although they had a range of wagons & a few coaches on discount), but a OO Pullman 3rd to go with her 1sts, and an LNER Conflat (which was effectively free, as the Pullman was @ 33% off); she got the other Conflat in MZ - so she's chuffed  :laugh3:

Me, I got the 2nd volume of the 'Named Trains on LNER Lines' - cracking book and on offer as well :D - so I guess SWMBO got both Conflats free  :laugh:

(on a side note : if anyone wants the blue (1969) version of the Hornby OO Brighton Belle, they had in the 2-car pack as well as all the extras - all at discount.  Not my cup of tea ...)

Funnily enough, I piched up a WD Austerity, black - late crest for 80 on Friday from the same branch. Just got it run in, about to fit the chip now.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Putting this in here, as I think it will make me happy at my next exhibition visit.

At the weekend, I came across an old man, making his way round an exhibition (not railway), and he had the perfect device for clearing the "gawpers" out of the way - a three wheeled mobility walker, that he was pushing along. The shape of it was just like a railway snowplough, and had the same effect of parting the way ahead of him. Think I will invest in one for next time.

Not a bad idea Kipper but I have said it before and will say it again " eat plenty of onions and baked beans a few days before the show and you will have the place to yourself"  :thumbsup:
Keep on Smiling
