The MK show is fast approaching.

Just spotted I've been located next door to a G Scale layout. :shock: :shock: That'll make T seem small! ;)

Good luck at this exhibition, hopefully it will be a succesful as the last.

Alas I will busy and also over 200 miles away from the 'home counties roundabout storage area' so will not be able to see your layout, but I do think we on this forum owe you a debt of gratitude for getting a T gauge layout out there before the public just to get the word out and show what can be done, and hopefully increase the number of active T gauge modellers. The layout that I have planned would also be good before the public, however my layout building is legendarily slow and I have not even started it yet (nor even the layout that I planned to build after inspiration at the 1980 Wakefield exhibition, which I have been collecting stock for ever since!), so all credit to you for getting the job done.

What a good day!

The show was very good, spread out through a number of halls and other areas at a modern school. There were loads of layouts in a variety of scales...and even a set of briefcase display layouts in N.

Robins Run was located in the corner of one of the halls, a location I initially thought not so good for such a small stand. But fears were allayed as the layout attracted crowds for most of the day...many who had never seen T before, and most totally amazed at the size and capability of the scale. And Adrian, my helper for the day, spent most of the day ushering visitors around the layout, pointing out how the appearance of the layout differs from differing viewpoints. It was a good job we were alongside a space for a fire exit route, as visitors were able to view from two sides! :D

It was nice to get to meet another forum member..PeterG paid a visit to the show, however I have to apologise to Peter for not being able to spend as much time discussing things as we both wanted.

Finally, I would like to publically thank Terry and the rest of the show organisers for inviting me along.

I saw you there but didn't get a chance to chat, you seemed very busy explaining to people about it at the time.

Layout was looking very good! It was all running so well as well, I can never seem to get my stuff running that well and reliably. Loved the painted sleepers.
