I usually go every year but there is major work on our line to London and I canít be bothered faffing about. Pity.

It used to be when you visited one of these shows be it Ideal home, car or model rail in the past almost all traders had "show special offers". This does not seem to happen these days apart from the odd one or two- pity

My wife and I went on Sunday, enjoyed the event our first railway event, loved the Ally Pally building and enjoyed the Italian meal we had Sunday evening in Southgate but not much else. Used to live within the M25 ring but every house move since then has taken me further away, don't want to go to London again for anything. Do want to go to the Warley at the NEC though.
