    Getting rid of the tosser that keeps telling you to park in axle deep mud you know you will never get out of would be a start.

    Getting rid of the axle deep mud would be the next step.

    "Extended free parking" is the term that they use on the flyer. I suspect people will be less tolerant of the fluorescent jerkin brigade this time..

    Last years facilities, the day after.....

    Thought I might use the bus next year if they're still running it and avoid the problem altogether.

    The bus is planned to be on again - free - from the Station to the Showground.

    Another Irish layout this year, I see - I wonder if this is an on-going policy?

    It's probably time to bump this - the weekend is approaching.

    I don't know - the photo had no information at all - I doubt that it's real.

    This, however, is real - it's what happened when a multi-loco train was parked with the brakes on, but one loco's controls failed and it was still 'driving' - it took a while for the friction to melt its way this far into the rail...
