@Noel - Thanks very much for the update. Looking forward to having a great day in Wexford this forthcoming Sunday.

Cheers, Enjoy. I like the big spacious hall they use which facilitates free flowing uncrowded movement, you can sit down and rest have a chat with other modellers in their superb Cafe.

@enniscourthyman - Looking forward to seeing that layout ["Bushville"]. Recently purchased the Scale Trains SDL39 (Wisconsin Central #587) which is currently stuck in customs. It's my first North American diesel locomotive but I wanted something which doesn't take up much room.

I look forward to the show.I am down to run the Clubs USA layout "Bushville"which will have a Irish theme to it.

Call me old fashioned for my age, but would it not look better with American stock run on it, or should we be running that on something like Rathmichael now

Rule 1 of model railways! Also Eamonn and Enda did a fantastic job at renovating the layout, since they have no American stock their Irish stock will make an appearance!

We're looking forward to a good show over the next few days, and we hope many of you will join us to enjoy the model railways this weekend :)

If only there were a club member with American stock who had specifically booked the 2 dates for the show off work so they could run said stock on Bushville, also as its a club layout rule 1 does not apply

Jaysus, if you want to bitch and moan, do it in private.

Why should rule 1 not apply to club layouts?

Rule 1 applies no matter what. It's a hobby, and it should be enjoyed. Not be bound by certain rules.

Quite a few 121's scattered about the show today for sure.

Bagged a nice Two Tone Green Baccy Class 47 with sound for 100 notes from Sean Ryan, Worth the trip alone, Just had a play with it there now and it is brand new!! Not even run!!

Enjoyed the day there, Left at 1745 and headed down to see the forlorn Port Lairge Wreck down in Saltmills then over to Portlaw to see the Malcomson's house, fish n chip in Youghal then. just in the door

Had a great time at the show yesterday. Enjoyed a few cups of tea, sandwiches and cakes in The Station Cafe also. @enniscorthyman - I didn't realise that was the "Bushville" US HO layout as I was too busy admiring all the models on it. As ever, the O gauge layout was my favourite, would love to see an A Class in that scale.

I enjoyed a great show yesterday. There were great layouts and the food and tea in the Station Cafe was very good. In the O Gauge layout, the exhibitor put on the Class 37 Large logo livery with the Mark 1 coaches which look stunning. I’m very appreciative of this exhibitor. I got Mainline tank wagons for €10 each and a Mark 1 blue/grey corridor coach for €25. Great value for money. I got Oxford Diecast models. As usual, a very friendly show. I travelled from Cork.

That sounds like a lovely day out George.

Pity I'm so far away 🙄

It has its plus points living down here but also has its disadvantages.

Thanks for supporting Lorna at the Exhibition and thanks, Wexford MRC, for providing PW with a stand!

I'm not sure what Fainne, Anthony's little girl, is looking at here (Mum's holding the camera)! Today was the second anniversary of Anthony's untimely death.

Apologies to the gent who wanted a second GSWR brake van - I recently repatriated three, as I was out of stock here in England! God-willing we'll be at Raheny and you can buy one there!

Excellent news! 5 of your beet doubles are high up on my shopping list as soon as funds allow once more.

Thanks, Nicholas for the video! 

For some reason, I really liked Rathmicheal - could it be the twelve (of my) double beets rushing round behind a variety of locos?

I liked the attention to little details on the line too - like the GSR concrete Milepost. Being a timer of trains, that's what I'm always looking out of the train window and trying to see!

Thanks for sharing, Eoin.
