Hi, the layout Schofield belongs to John Heywood at Redruth. He runs it on a card system, it takes over an hour to bring a train in, switch the wagons to where they should be, make up the leaving train, couple up the loco and leave.

We had quite a good weekend, it was fairly busy. Waiting for Friday now to see you guys for the first time.

:cool winkNigel

First I don't know why its called 'Schofield' John owns Team Track Trading model railroad shop in Redruth(if you want to go, you'll have to get a local forum member to show you or give you directions)

Yes the public did like it, they stood and watched the switching, I operated it over the weekend for a quite a time because john was there with his stand from the shop. Which will help me because I'm a relief operator for you next week.

Saturday wasn't as busy as sunday but it was steady all week end, in my duty as exhibition manager I go around to all the traders to make sure they've had a good show and they're happy come next time, the general feeling is people have lost the confidence to spend money. With the VAT hike after Xmas it can only get worse, but luckily all but one who's giving up they all want to come back.
