    Went up this afternoon. Quite a good event this year. My two faves were Franwood T.M.D. and Acton Parkway. Halls two and three were a bit light on displays though I thought.

    Caught sight of @Gramaisc lurking around as well so no doubt better pics than I took will make an appearance before long.

    Bleedon for me - as a landscape model, it hardly needed the addition of the railway....

    The winning layout, the quarry one where they moved a pile of sand around with two excavators and a hopper train - that was just genius! It should have been in the middle of the floor, so more people could actually crowd round it.

    Pictures in a bit....

    Noticed that there was no foreign stuff this year (I think).

    The quarry one was good. No I didn't see anything foreign this year. Blame Brexiteer.

    Hi

    I spent the weekend at the show helping a friend on their trade stand.

    My favourite was the O gauge layout in the middle hall. Quite simple but very well done. The quarry was interesting.

    Managed to miss the stand I was on (to the left of your picture of the 3rd hall)

    Bleedon was a nice layout.
