I went to the show in Liverpool yesterday and a good show it was too.
Quite a laid back and surreal feeling to the show,with the sun streaming through the stained glass windows of the church that was the venue.Will post pics sometime today when i have sorted out the ones worth showing.

Some pics from the show.
Apologies if some are not too clear as i am a bit of a point and click merchant when it comes to a camera.



Iron Street Mills - EM Gauge - Size - 5 x 1.4ft
The layout is based on a paper mill sitting on the Leeds to Liverpool canal.












New Hey - EM Gauge - Size - 24 x 12ft
New Hey is small village at the foot of the Pennines on the "Oldham Loop".Set in the 1960's.











Gorne and Dunette Railroad - On30 - Size - 15 x 2ft.
The G&D is a privately owned short line previously owned by the Rio Grande Western.
The line was in danger of closure after the two main lines flooded.
As a large number of other industries in the area were put at risk the local towns people formed a cooperative to lease the spur from the main line.Due to the cost required the new company could not afford to buy and maintain the K class locomotives on offer.This resulted in the rather diverse collection of motive power, obtained from the many lines that were closing down at the time.


















Dolgelly (Dolgellau) - 00 Gauge - Size - 33 x 8ft
The year is 1964 on the Great Western line that ran between Raubon and Barmouth.



























A J Construction - 00 Gauge - Size - 9 x 2ft

 












More pics to follow

Great shots Ste

The modelling on the Dolgellau layout looked exceptional.........but it was your opening photo that really stirred my memories.........Waterloo!. The sign wasnt like that in my day but I used that station 6 days a week  (yes we had school on Saturday mornings) during term time.........can you still get to the station via Five Lamps?

Bizarre asking questions like that from Vancouver!

Hello John...
I'm glad the picture brought back some memories for you.
5 Lamps........ah now you are going back a bit.
Yes you can get to the station still from Five Lamps via Crosby Rd then South Rd.
I don't think much has changed drastically in the area.The station has had a bit of a facelift but still retains a lot of old features that i'm sure you would remember.
