I must admit I enjoyed the Show, Some lovely Layouts on display, Some nice Bargains to be had also.


Spent about 5 hours there, Did not help that I forgot to add the extra hour to the timepiece!!


I hope the Monday had a good turnout as it was well deserved.


Thanks George and to everyone who attended. We had a reasonable turnout given the weekend's competing celebrations and were very pleased with the interest shown by all in the layouts. Great to meet folks from IRM.com for a chat. Gerry
