The French layout was very impressive but all the Continental layouts were of a very high standard.

Thanks, mate!
My mission is complete if I can get people to see that just because a layout may be 'different' or 'not British', it can still be worthwhile!

My motto is good modelling is good modelling, regardless of prototype.
Cheers,
John.

is also a small feat in and of itself. Did it go by Channel or Chunnel?
Thanks, Chops.
It all went into a 'transit' or 'Sprinter' type van and they drove up the the tunnel IIRC. I think they would have preferred to take the ferry from St. Malo to Portsmouth as that would have been a lot less driving but would have cost a LOT more so they took the cheaper option. Again, if my memory and understanding serves me correctly!

PS Thanks, everyone for your positive comments, it is much appreciated.

Now to the German contingent;
From Lingen to Gefrees (Sawmill)





The kind of narrow gauge that I love!


Everything about this G1 layout from Holland, was HUGE! What most impressed me though was the depth of the sound. Unfortunately, I missed photographing their V65 0-8-0 diesel but that was quite remarkable how you could really feel the sound coming from it, presumably due to the large speakers used.

Unfortunately it seems I only got one shot of this Märklin 3 rail layout (I was sure I took more!). What was really remarkable about this layout was that it seemed to be set up and operated all weekend long by just one chap, and he was quick about it, too!

When you operate from the front, we can inspect your control panel!

An overall view of the Drehscheibe (Turntable/hub) itself.




I did have a look inside the shed but it was not too easy to photograph!
This was by a lovely couple, I hope they had a safe journey back to Bavaria.

That concludes my European tour of the layouts at Warley although there were others that I missed, sadly. Being part of a team here means you do get to spend most of your time on the layout, of course!
However, I couldn’t resist a snap of this beauty.

Hornby’s 1:1 scale H class.
Who could resist this wonderful looking machine?
Cheers,
John.
