Ken & I travelled down to the show on the Saturday arrived about 12.00 when it was really busy and difficult to squeeze around. However it did ease up later and we got to see everything. We were staying overnight, for a bit of a pub crawl and visit to the East Lancs on the Sunday. It would have been appreciated if there had been a facility for overnight bags to be stored. An Excellent selection of layouts all well presented. It was difficult making a selection for the best layout, all had their merits. St Just was excellent but the mix of pre group GWR and warships at the same grated a we bit. Bridgewater is very nice and operates well but everything looks too clean, especially the ballast. Cirencester looks the part and I really appreciated the toned down liveries on the stock. Nice to see some of the less popular prototypes too. Manor Quarry, while very small, had a lot of interest and Campbell’s Quarry shifted a lot of sand in a very entertaining way and the sound added to the effect unlike some other layouts on the circuit.
