:hi
 Just to show I was there for my last show for the foreseeable future.My Sunday crew covered for me so I could take the photo.
My eldest son John can be seen on the right, he did the first show with an 0 gauge layout 32 years ago, so it only seemed right for him to do my last.

My other operator managed to break the left hand traverser, so the sequence went to pot. However, the sight of a double headed train consisting of  a B4 0-4-0 a Peckett 0-4-0 pulling a 4 wheeled all third with an Earl of Dudley Brake Van (No4) raised a few smiles.
 There are a couple more photos in the gallery

Is this 'Earl of Dudley', the colliery?

I have a PO wagon, hadn't realised they had brake vans - but why not - limited imagination my part.

Penlan - currently in York Library, Internet Cafe...

Well we are back now, the weather was OK, the snow reduces echo's, gives the sounds of life a softness.
A great time up there.... A number of Pubs sold Porter/Dark ales and I found The Pheonix pub too....

The straight through, no changes train journey back, another matter all together, but let's jump a few incidents and say last night (around midnight!) on the A30 near Bodmin, on the inside of the taxi's windows, the moisture was frozen......... and we got home about 1.20am, some 4.5+ hours later than planned. :cry:

I think the balmy 6 degress is a carrot...... Oh and I don't care how much jim s-w pushes New St. I have lost any desire to spend more than a couple of minutes there again, ever......

Interesting to see a short feature of the show on the tele last night. Inside Out at 7.30pm. Pete Waterman acted as host and spoke mainly about his passion to rekindle interest in the hobby amongst the young. He lead the camera around several of the layouts as well as his own discussion/demo area. The layout with the moving bicycle enjoyed several clips during the broadcast which lasted about 10 minutes overall.

Geoff R, I thought he did well, remembering it's for Joe public and junior, didn't include any of the shot's around my layout, we had to move about etc., for the camera crew, as they blindly floundered around behind the layout....

But a nice bit of publicity, and a respected personality with enthusiasm presenting it, what more can one ask.

OT.. looking forward to Michael Portillo's 2nd series in January 2011 (I think), but that will be a separate topic on here, somewhere.

My hands were in that clip! There was the most fleeting of glimpses of the Winchester club layout Abbotstone. Of course at the moment they chose to film I was chewing gum and swigging coke while waiting for the shunter to sort out my train!

Cheers
Dave
