A pretty strong looking layout list , if I may say so. Bradford City Rd appeared in the last RM , and I think is making one of its first show appearances , Brockley Green is an excellent 3rd rail layout from the people who brought us Chessington Chalk Lane (and quite a lot of other good modern image layouts too)

Flockburgh , a small 3mm scale finescale terminus is very good as well, and progress on the home club's GC main line project (replacement for the old Tebay) should be interesting.

I've been to Shipley show once , and it was a good medium sized show with trade support. But it does mean quite a lot of climbing stairs as some of it's on the 3rd floor... It's walkable from Shipley station

But if you're going to Shipley you won't get to Woking 'cos they're the same weekend and 200 miles apart... Both are decent sized shows with a good reputation and unfortuately I won't be going to either.... I'm otherwise engaged next weekend

Anyway hope you have a good show...

Well worth a visit even if it is a pig to get out of the side street afterwards. Last time I followed a sign for Shipley Glen afterwards but never did find it!

Hope everyone who visited the show enjoyed it. Unfortunately the van transporting the 3mm layout Flockburgh to the show was involved in an accident on the M42 and the EM layout Stormy on Tess was rushed to the show as a late replacement. Solway Sands was unable to attend due to family illness, as neither was the trader Sign of the Times. Ten Commandments expandable stand filled the trade gap while Sodham Hall was relocated to the ground floor, unfortunately it was too late to get an correcting insert for the programmes. I did manage to update the web site with the revised details as I gradually became aware of them (well Friday night, Saturday morning as the show was opening and again in the evening).

The award for the best building went to the GNR goods shed on Oakwell Central, Stainmore Summit took the visitors best layout award, while Bradford City Road got both the club members best layout award (by one point) and the award for the layout with the best atmosphere.

Operationally the DCC powered Fleminsberg Junction demo layout suffered a failed command station on the Saturday when emergency repairs with a soldering iron were undertaken while the DCC power was still on the track. (Tip for anyone with DCC, switch off before picking up the soldering iron). Thankfully it turned out to be a protective trip on the command station as it was fully functional on Sunday. More panic arrived for the demo crew on Sunday when one visitor observed that a smoke unit had fitted to one diesel - it hadn't and turned out to be a failed motor as opposed to DCC chip.

It sounds like rather an eventful weekend in more ways than one.
