I took a few but they are pretty dire ....  :embarassed:

My excuses being
[1] Forgot my specs.
[2] Bright sun made LCD screen look like a mirror, no real idea what was in the frame ...  :headscratch:

But I'll stick them up. Make of them what you will ..  :D

Nice pics even so. Thanks for posting them. Too bad there weren't more model engines though. A sign of the times I guess.  ::)

What a hot weekend, I really enjoyed the the show. For me it was a 250mile round trip mostly round the M25, I think Mike and myself didn't        expect too much before we went but I was pleasantly surprised with the interest in our models.
  I think I answered as many questions at the Guildford show as I do at the Bristol show.

   If the other local model engineers brought along their models to show instead of bleating on how poor it was it would be a better show.
   
   If all is well next year I will take my engine running gear and make some noise.

   Anyway model railway engines are still models and have been built by someone.

    Who ate all the fudge ?

I absolutely agree with that. Mike and I showed the way. Let's hope others will follow our example and bring their models next year.

    Who ate all the fudge ?     

Eric found the unopened packet of sticky whatsits that had been placed in my cool-bag. Never saw them again after that.

This year we were looking at what had happened to it and strangely enough I had already been thinking that we could have an MEM Gazabo next year. The lack of insurance is the only problem  :noidea:

Who ate all the fudge ?

A more interesting question is what is the life expectancy of a packet with you around  :cheers:

P.S. I'm back working on the Scorpion drawings  ;)

I have no objections to people making model Locomotives but my hobby is not running a miniature railway.

       Strange, the pictures with Jo in them have more views than the pictures of just the engines.

       So Eric is the Fudge eater.

       I'm glad your getting the drawings done Jo, I just like making bits. I had a nice fondle with you Saturday it gave me something to think
           about.
