    Totally agree Noel, Your first picture, i thought this a very detailed layout, great to meet up with yourself, Kirley, Hunslett 102, Dhu Varren and a few others, missed the chance to talk to IRM reps but still purchased 12 of their superb wagons, looking forward to and planning next years visit. Highly recommended show

    First Bangor MRC Exhibition

    Enjoyed the exhibition at Bangor albeit much the same as last year, met up with Kieran and had a brief chat with MikeO. He had a cement train on display which caught my eye, quite impressed Mike. Visited “Campbell Riverside” layout belonging to Irishmail of this parish but missed John, he must had been on a break. To top the day off I got the opportunity of seeing Kirley Junction running. What a treat to see such superb modelling skills on display on a layout that catches your eye no matter which way you turn to view it. Kieran, thanks again for your hospitality TDR

    flux for soldering

    As a qualified heating engineer with many many years expeience the use of plumbers flux is suitable to use with caution, it contains an acid that becomes very active when heated, it must be thourghly cleaned after use otherwise it will start turning bright green and eventually corode the material TDR
