  1. UK Model Railway Exhibitions

    The current trade attendees at the upcoming Stafford exhibition are at the bottom of this - http://www.staffordrailwaycircle.org.uk/exhibition/ - I'm not sure if any are baseboard providers, but I can't remember seeing one there in the past, though it is quite possible that there was.

    Quite often, it looks like they've "only just caught the bridge" - I wonder if people rely on the stated bridge height clearance being a little pessimistic.
  3. UK Model Railway Exhibitions

    It's worth looking at Stafford - quite big, but still fairly civilised, not the scrum of Warley - reasonably central and gets good crowds - around the first weekend of February every year. Short notice for this year? @Mike 84C has been, a couple of years ago, if you want another opinion. If you need a hand there, I'm a couple of miles away.

  5. Access desktop layout on iPhone?

    They seem to be on about pinching something - possibly a stack of boxes from somewhere in Dublin?
  6. Peco Code 75 flex-track

    It looks to me that Hattons will sell it to you for £72 + £4 carriage to the North - for wooden sleeper track.
  7. Photographic Website Updates

    In the 70s, I used to go from Stafford to Lincoln on the train - cycling to Uttoxeter saved over an hour on the journey, and a third of the ticket price.

    I think it's actually near the Russian sauna in Navan - that's him in the top picture here. https://www.facebook.com/rrsauna/?rf=296432527114579

    Thinking about it, you might bump into Vlad before I do..
  10. Russian bear v pc-9

    I'll see what I can co. Whilst discussing aerodynamic braking with somebody, I found this supreme example of the technique from an Il 76 in Malta - perhaps the cost of the brake shoes comes out of his wages?

  12. Union Pacific Loco Storage.

    At least they're not scrapped - yet.
