Sheffield Model Railway Enthusiasts Exhibition 2018

Postby dkightley » Wed Nov 15, 2017 1:59 am

I've recently had confirmation of an invitation for The Bridge to attend the Sheffield Model Railway Enthusiasts Exhibition 2018....being held on Sat and Sun 24th & 25th March 2018 at Birkdale School, Oakholme Road, Sheffield. S10 3DH.

This should be a good show for anyone in the north of the Midlands and the Yorkshire areas.

Day one of the show done. A steady stream of visitors all day...and with Graham's help for most of the day, it has been a nice and comfortable day!! :D

Things didn't start all that easily....as track joints, tight clearances between the bridge deck and rolling stock, and my power sharing wiring in the Class 170 DMU all caused a hectic time prior to show opening! But once I'd sorted the issues out, everything started to run nice and smoothly...like clockwork. For what I think has been the first time, I've not had to restart the automation sequencing even once!

Many thanks to Graham for all his help today....its been nice having someone to share talking to the visitors.....

Now for an hour's less sleep! :roll:
