Rather timely in our case. We've just looked at the rain forecast for the south coast and there's going to be lots of it, so a trip to Folkestone sounds like a much better alternative and as I've just told Gill, we might even remember to go

Well we did it and overall it was, as usual, a good show with a good assortment of layouts. Several caught the eye but as I haven't got the programme to hand I can't remember the names!

Had a chat with the guys on the Hornby roadshow, including Mr K, and got to see the T9 (non working variant), a pre-production sample of the new BR standard and a pair of the new HST power cars in Swallow livery. All very impressive.

Didn't buy much as in all honesty there was nothing expensive there we wanted. Mind you both myself and Brian picked up some old catalogues for the staggering price of 20p each.

Amazingly considering the atrocious weather the show was almost as busy on the Sunday as it was on the Saturday.

Roll on next year.

Regards

I second that.

They also had a blue Duchess chuffing around one of the layouts when we looked in but it was doing a steady speed so I don't what else it can do.

QUOTE Didn't buy much as in all honesty there was nothing expensive there
Hmm, define "expensive"
I bought a Hornby A3 "St Gatien" and a rebuilt Patriot for about half the current list price for the pair, so I reckon that's paid for the fuel.

QUOTE Amazingly considering the atrocious weather the show was almost as busy on the Sunday
It was certainly rather nasty in the earlier part of Sunday but with the neighbouring car park being underground and just a short hop across the road outside to the hall, you weren't in too much danger. The underpass direct from the hall to the car park must have been a great boon for packing up at the end of the day. The weather did let up later in the afternoon so we managed a short walk along the front. We are looking forward to going back and seeing the town when the sun is shining.

A full range of sounds & it's an ESU decoder to boot ! (as demonstrated by SK).
