Trehayne is an excellent layout and they must have a good range of members in the Bodmin club.  Usually I find that any layout at an exhibition excels in one area but lacks in another, for example they may have outstanding scenery but the stock they are running is old Lima or something.

Trehayne has excellent scenery, the stock is all well detailed, runs well, is appropriate to the time / location and never derails.  Electrically it is faultless - you never see the arm in the sky giving a quick shove or lots of people frantically flipping switches to get things moving again.

There is a huge variety of stock on the layout and if they have all five people operating then you get the branch line working independant of the main, the goods yard being shunted, the two main lines in operation and all the signalling working.

Unfortunately with me working I only had limited time to nip around and take pictures so I did not have time to wait for everyone to be out of the way and I also did not have time to sit and edit them all, but at least you get the feel for the exhibition as if you were there!

Brian, Bodmin is a great show.  A bit bigger than Hayle but not as big as Truro.  There were another two or three layouts that I just did not get chance to take any pictures of.  I have never been to Wadebridge but I believe it is not as good as Bodmin.  Now I may be biased but any show that claims to be "the biggest in the South West" obviously has a very limited outlook when you look at Truro and Carn Brea.  They have also never invited us to attend so the trade support can only be the people operating out of their car boots...

I was really looking forward to going to the Wadebridge Show (8/9th Nov) but as I can't drive due to my broken wrist that's now out of the question. However, there are some really good layouts there - 13 so far - including Fisherton Sarum, Wenford Bridge etc so perhaps a bit better than you envisage Chris?

Ken.

Brilliant photos Chris - thanks for posting them.

I've really enjoyed studying them all and there's some great layouts and some ideas there for me to use !!  In fact, one photo has already solved a problem I had running around my mind regarding occupation bridges.

Great.

Great pictures Chris, next best thing to building a model railway is watching them or looking at pictures, great.

Anything that helps you ease back into things has to be good Bob!
