I'm sad to report that Book Law Publications have confirmed they are NOT coming to our show and Robin Gibson has also had to cancel.

I am happy to announce that our 'show you how' will be manned by Dave Edwards who will be demonstrating how he [S]models in 009 scale.[/S]
My mistake! Dave will be showing how he builds 4mm scale coal wagons from scratch.

I can now announce that we have managed at short notice, to get two layouts to take the place of the missing traders. I will let you know the details as soon as I have them.

The two 'new' layouts are;
St. Miran Junction by Kevan Jones. 00 scale set west of Glasgow in the diesel era. 12' x 8'.

St. Michael's Road by Romily Methodist Railway Modellers. 12' x 6' 00 gauge representing a small steam shed on outskirts of a popular town. It has its own small allocation but other engines arrive after working excursion trains into the town. There are also occasional diesels on test.

That makes 13 layouts plus a small demonstration layout from Astley Green Mining Museum.

It seemed like a good day yesterday, not packed out but a steady stream of visitors all day. I was rather busy with my layout but that’s what I thought.
Let’s hope for another decent day today.

Well, that was that! All the planning and preparations not to mention, hard work is all over now. I enjoyed it and I think most of the others did too. It’s too early to say how well we did but at times it was rather quieter than we would have preferred. At other times there certainly was a good “hubbub” going on. A friend of mine who is a trader, professed to have done “okay” so hopefully, we have made enough to carry on for a while yet. By all accounts though, when even large venues like Warley are relatively quiet, it does make one wonder how long shows will be able to continue in their current form.
Some ‘snaps’ I managed to take on Sunday morning;

A lovely ‘industrial’ scene on Jenny Kirk’s “Grove Street Yard”.


Fred Holt & Brian Chawners lovely little TMD.


Edward Farms charming “Much Snoring”


Leigh MRS own N gauge “Weir”.
