    • And YOU have assumed here too. I was there an HOUR before it opened, others were setting up as well.  As you were there on Friday,  did you see who took them? I was there at 9.00 on  Saturday, I have a life, a family and a job that entails shift work, so a Friday set up is unpractical.  I did seek out an NDMRS person, who got me some tables, but not enough to run on. The tables I had ordered were gone, it  was the replacements that were unsuitable. I wouldn't take tables that weren't belonging to me, but somebody in the hall did. If that's the mindset that's coming into railway modelling, then I'd rather be out of it.  A reply to my email that I sent to the organisers on Sunday would be welcome.       
    • Sorry, I gave up on Exhibiting back in the late 1980's although I continued attending Shows but working on various friend's Trade stands for many years thereafter and also looked after a local model shop when the owners were doing shows, having holidays etc. I have a flickr album in Ernie's Railway Archive of some of the layouts. Thankfully not many photos were taken and those that were are mostly of the same quality as the layouts!  hhttps://www.flickr.com/photos/irishswissernie/albums/72157690426038844/page1 I have now reached my '3 score + 10' and being retired have discovered that I don't have any free time any more. Apparently this is a common problem! Ernie
    • Any plans to show all your hard work at Exhibitions?
    • Kadee conversion of IRM ballast wagons continues.  Kadee no 18s glued to underside of NEM pockets has worked really well. Comparison below on test track.  Top four wagons out of the box with tension lock couplings, the four wagons below have had the Kadee no 18s added. The rake is considerably shorter.  Very happy so far with test runs on the layout over short peco points and my tightest radius curves. PS: Looking at these lovely wagons I think I am going to have to bite the bullet and weather them soon, especially the loads.  
    • Nice progress. Enjoying seeing this layout evolve.
