Well the nights are drawing in and the days of chasing and filming Main line steam and Class 37 hauled pasenger trains are drawing to a close for another year but as usual I'll be out and about with the layouts back end of this year. Anybody over in England at the time are welcome to come and have a chat at the following shows
Blackburn 3rd-4th September Shasta (long form)
Bradford 10th October Republic Steel
Zedex 16th October Republic Steel
Hartlepool 23rd –24th October Cuyahoga
Shoeburyness 9th-10th November Shasta
Manchester 3/4th December Shasta (long Form)
Highlight of the year will be Zedex of course with over 20 Z and Nm layouts expected plus trade stands and a great community feel from everybody involved.
Republic Steel will probably be shown in 'Railblue' i.e British Railways 1970-80s form
And yes I do know the cars are on the wrong side of the road for England!
Cuyahoga will be out in full Nickel Plate Road form
Shasta in long form will be running 12 foot long freights with my new SD70 Ace taking pride of place
As you can see I have three weekends out on the bounce in October . This will involve a lot of going to the pub with the rest of the lads, in whichever town the show is in, but that it is the sort of sacrifice you reluctantly have to make!
I'll post reports as I go along
Once winter hits I'm concentrating on connecting Republic Steel to the right hand end of Cuyahoga and then starting to add some Hullett iron ore unloaders to the dock area,making a start on Tapton Junction the new British layout and also making a 'different' Japanese Z layout. God knows where I'm going to put it all!
