Well done Doug!

And I'm glad the news show finally went out... would have been a shame to go though all that stress for nothing.

Excellent, well done Doug, you have put T gauge on the modelling map. What a shame Storm Doris got in the way. Would be great if you could find a link. I'll have a look on the show's site.

Many modellers don't even know T gauge exists and a new forum I have joined recently has a board for all the gauges except, it only goes as far as one for both N and Z. I will have to enlighten them.

Congratulations Doug on winning these fantastic awards at Model Rail Scotland 2017. "Best Non-association Layout" and "Best in Show". Well deserved indeed.

It was so good to see the "The Bridge" within this brilliant exhibition. A stunning piece of work appreciated by thousands over the very busy weekend. I was impressed with your single handed dedication to getting the job done. Two and a half years of work that finally paid off.
Hopefully this will inspire the model making community to engage with T-gauge.

It was a pleasure to finally meet up with you and was glad to help out.

I have selected a few highlights of the weekend below.

Safely back home after a long and fairly uneventful drive.......van unloaded and lounge and kitchen rammed! I'll stow everything away tomorrow.

I'd like to thank Jim Rusk publically for all the help he's given me over the four days of the show. It's amazing how easier things can be with just one extra pair of hands! And a big thank you to Alan Ramsey for coming over to lend a hand fielding questions on Saturday and Sunday....and for bringing the bacon cobs, Irn Bru and muffins! Having help makes the simplest things like having a cuppa possible!! ;)

Well...what a weekend. I'm still in a bit of a daze over everything that's happened. I need some quiet time to mull things over.
