Three photos that have been processed to compensate for the martian lighting of hall 5.

Something unusual, Willesden Junction. An 009 layout set behind the lines in WWI.

Thats alovely 009 layout Ian very nicely done

I assume during WW1 because of the static nature of trench warfare the narrow gauge lines were quite extensive in France and Belguim.

Thanks for posting those piccys

cheers brian

I had heard of this layout but these are the first pictures I have seen - very interesting . Thanks for posting them .

I have often thought a layout based on railways behind the allied lines in WW2 would be an interesting proposition as a number of UK locomotives such as Dean Goods were taken over to supply motive power.

A bit more work with PhotoPaint.

This is Dagnell End an OO layout by Redditch MRC depicting the 1960s at a fictional station on the Hounslow loop. (18' long scenic section)

I was contentedly examining Willesden Junction above when very young man appeared at my side quickly followed by his dad. "Wow, what's going on here, Dad" asked the young man innocently. "That's only Dad's Army, that is! C'mon!" said the ignoramus. Talk about mis-educating our kids. :shock: :cry: :???: 

Very interesting layout and thoroughly enjoyed the show but sorry didn't take any pictures myself.

For the first time I went to the Warley Show. I was in the UK for a few days and decided at the last minute to go on the Saturday. I'm really sorry I didn't see the guys who were manning the stands etc but not having access to the internet I wasn't able to remind myself who was where and on what stand. I knew Mike was there but couldn't see anyone operating an "O" gauge layout with a badge saying  "Mike" pinned to his chest - I suppose I could have asked but I didn't want carting off for importuning.  

First time views? - well sure it was busy and pricey (the show guide was £4 on top of everything else) and certainly I was bashed about quite a bit by inconsiderate guys with rucksacks, however I enjoyed it enormously. I was there from 1030 until chucking out time at 1800 hours and could have stayed longer. Perhaps its a bit different for me because I need to get supplies whenever I am in the UK and actualy getting a lot of traders together saved me a considerable amount of postage, especially on small items e.g. solder, paint etc. The crush eased by lunchtime and in the afternoon it was very confortable with easy access to layouts and stalls.

Sorry I didn't have my camera with me because there were some terrific layouts. The WWI layout that Ian has referred to was awesome and so many were mind blowing however the one that attracted my attention (I kept going back to it) was County Gate. I am gobsmacked to read above that Dave R is involved with this layout because in my eyes it is the absolute Dog's B....x.  This superb model which is, I think, based on the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway is a fabulous exercise in scenic modelling which you should try and see if it comes to a show near you.

I also liked the "experts" working at tables who were very accommodating of my questions. I wanted a word with Norman Solomon (THE Norman Solomon) about hand built trackwork but sadly some guy had collared him and I couldn't get a word in, but the fact that I could have done if I had had the time to wait is impressive.

Would I go again? Yes I think so but perhaps not for a season or two - I wouldn't want to get bored with it. We'll see!

Les

Can't claim any credit for County Gate unfortunately, it's all the work of John de Frayssinet. I just help out when it comes to showing it.

Cheers

I am thoroughly confused here Les.  The only word I can get to fit here is quite rude and I am sure you would never utter such a thing :twisted:
