Derby Exhibition 2018.

Recommended Posts

Thanks to my newly appointed social secretary, @Robert Shrives, I managed to attend this today - and see Arigna in the flesh.

The Derby exhibition used to be an annual event for me, a little more 'continental' than most, but I find that interesting. I haven't been for two.three years now, due to not being so efficiently reminded in time. It is now at a most excellent new venue.

The new venue is in the old roundhouse, right next to Derby station, for those that want to travel by rail and avoid the entertainment of Derby's road traffic system.

It has excellent facilities for those with heavier than usual baseboards.

The pits are visible through the glass floor.

And it seems to be licensed for extra refreshment possibilities.

The main point was to view Arigna. I was not disappointed. There was constant activity, most efficiently performed. The hand-of-God coupling/uncoupling was amongst the deftest that I have seen - often it takes as long as it would to crochet a hearthrug, it seems.

Placing the layout in the draught of the entrance doors was an act of genius - the wafting of the washing was truly inspiring.

There was one for those suffering from yellow fever.

I seem to have managed to miss out this picture...

...showing the very informative notes along the layout frontage and the neat trick of hiding the backscene joints by means of the church spire and a tree.

(The post at the end is not hiding a joint in David's head.)

It's definitely an exhibition worth going to, there are a lot of aspects that are better than many others - spacing is one of them, I hardly ever had anybody 'in the way'.

And I will polish my shoes before including them in any more pictures...
