Don't normally go to this show as it doesn't normally have much to offer, but I though I'd make the short trip through this year.  8 or 9 layouts and about the same amount of traders I knew that I had already seen 3 of the layouts but was pleasantly surprised with the others.  Here are a few photos.

  O-6.5 The Burrows




O-6.5 Wiloughby




OO Dunnichen Steam Shed




N Grove St




HO Yakima Creek


Finally, one of the finest layouts I have seen for a long time, really well looked after, great attention to detail and lots of nice touches.

Thanks for those piccys,Lawrence.That last one in particular looks a cracker.
Just goes to show that even a very small show can still be a good one.
The modern outline N gauge one looked interesting,too.

Cheers,John.B.

Caxton Gibbet for me too. My kind of layout and the kind that can be built by one man. Is there a fiddle yard in there somewhere Lawrence for operation?

Yes Bob, in the first picture of Caxton there is an eight track "traverser" (is that what they are called, slides across the width of the end of the layout?), you can't see it coz I'm resting my belly on it to take the photo :lol:

John, yes it was a nice wee layout, but I confess to being a little selfish at times and whilst it looked good, it just didn't hugely appeal to me, hence the lack of photos, sorry :oops:

Ron, I did speak to him about it, but I gather that they are a small club with limited finances so I assume it would be expensive for them to convert everything.  And the still use the good old hand of God decoupling method :lol:

I love the sweeping curves on the Caxton layout it certainly is a very well presented layout one im sure kept visitors attension for quite some time with the attention to detail.

Great photos and as you said Caxton Gibbet looks the bees knees.

Seeing you have done such a good job with the photos I will leave it to you to do the report/phtos on Dundee show

Talk soon

I agree the Caxton Gibbet one is the best.  The backdrop lets it down a bit though.

Not a bad show for Cupar.
