Just off to the Guildford show: There will be a number of MEM members exhibiting their models so hopefully we can provide some pics later today  :)

The Weather was good  :)

We had two tents to ourselves, so we put on a show of engines.

Of course keeping Mike Coles out of the running cage was difficult  ::)

As soon as he realised the Guildford club was going to provide him with free petrol the running frequency increased  :cartwheel:

There were a good number of Model Traction Engines, who played double heading round the field  :naughty:

I think there may have been some Choochoo trains but  :facepalm: I failed to photograph any of those  :Doh:

Many thanks for the excellent photos: sorry not to have made it to the "new format" Guildford show, but those attending were presented with some of the finest examples of model engineering that it would very well be possible to enjoy seeing.   Dave

We were not so lucky with the weather today. Sunday was all rain and drizzle which meant few visitors and early finish.

 :( You could have sent the rain my way Mike the garden needs it

Jo

P.S. I won't be going to old Warden next Sunday , I am still in too much pain from yesterday and Guildford is a fraction of the distance .
