yep, thanks for supporting it lads. I was an enjoyable day. If only I brought the Apt in, What a sight that would of been on your track demo layout!! Ah well.


That would have been a sight, I have packed up early and legged it with your APT! =))


I'm raging that I didn't buy one, I think they might do another run given the demand.

I did not take any as I have hit the 10 year mark with Pc Kaput, Laptop Kaput, Camera Kaput.....have not got the will to replace them


But at the risk if being cheeky there are some pics here:




We will need to review next years one as the costs are too great and the show this year did not cover the outgoing expenses despite a large number of visitors again. With an relative Explosion of shows now in Cork with one in Clonakilty June, Fort Camden in August and a Diecast one in the Airport hotel and other around the county have kind of diluted traders and exhibitors.


We will have to sit down and see what direction to take.
