'the chilled diet coke for the boss!'

Don't recognise that brewery, what's the ABV% ?

Don't mention alcohol - he's bad enough running the stand when he's sober! 

The staff do all the work anyway - that's why I build up a thirst! 

Diet coke and a cup of tea are about as strong as we can cope with.

I expect a reply very soon!

If you really want to impress, forget what the staff want and just remember the chilled diet coke for the boss!


He might even give you a discount if you do :mutley

Hello Chris,
Would that be "stirred, not shaken", with or without an Olive? Try NOT to mis-lay any Stock this time,
mate. Have a Good Time and hope business is brisk,
Kind Regards,
Michael Thornberry.

Well, I'm hoping to be fit enough for the show this weekend!!

We have already had a number of orders placed with us for collection at the show. Can I please request that anyone else who wants to pre-order things for collection at the show does so BEFORE Friday 19th as we will have packed everything up by then!!

If you want to place an order for the show on-line before Friday please feel free, but add a note in the comments box to that effect and select Collection as the shipping method and Pickup as the payment method as we won't take any payments before the show.

I have also decided that we will NOT unpack anything at the request of customers so please do not ask. We would normally, for example, test all locos before despatching by post but that just isn't possible at Warley. We have also been the subject of a number of thefts at recent shows and one of the strategies is to distract our staff by getting them to unpack a product whilst others are busy elsewhere. The product isn't then bought and takes an age to get it back into the original packaging. All of our products are new and have never been out of the box. Warley is just so busy that it is getting unreasonable to both ask us to unpack things for inspection and also ask us long and complicated technical questions that require an equally long and technical answer. We will always do what we can to help but we also expect some cooperation from customers when we have queues of people 3-4 deep surrounding the stand. I hope you will understand and help us in this respect.

Sunday is going to be particularly difficult for us as we are an assistant down (slipped disc), so please bear with us!!

We're on stand A32, backing on to Kernow, it seems.

We will have a number of bargain boxes of 1:76 and 1:148 vehicles and some free trees for customers. I've just spent all afternoon and evening sorting them out!!

As we're going to be short-handed Sunday, if there's anyone willing/able to help shift some boxes at the end of the afternoon that would be very much appreciated.

We are fully loaded and ready for departure at 0600 tomorrow morning.

Trading restrictions by Warley mean that we are not permitted to sell UK outline, only Continental, although we have been granted an exemption for our exclusive models.

If we get set up in time we are hoping to get over to Leicester to see the Tigers play as one of their players (Ben Gulliver, on loan from Cornish Pirates) has tickets for us, so hopefully we can get set up quickly and foxtrot oscar pretty sharpish!

No Nick, although we may have to do it under the table while no-one is looking!

Other traders are fine Ron.  It is presumably a bit like when we only invited one of each type of trader.  I don't quite understand though given the number of identical traders they stuff the place with, but I am attending fully aware of what the restrictions were so am not complaining.

Just got home from what was a really good show this year, the quality of the layouts, particularly the continental ones (and they normally don't float my boat) was fantastic.

The outstanding layout for the quality of its modelling for me was Rymenzburger Chnollebahn a small 1:22.5 600mm gauge layout. I found this link to some video - superb http://de.youtube.com:80/watch?v=rzPirES6lTw

I got to see Doofer's Warehouse and customs house on the Scalescene's stand and the quality of Doug's work is outstanding.

It was really good to meet one or two YMRers, Ralph (Fishplate42) and his wife sue, Christrerise and ElDavo. I was going to introduce myself to Penlan and Mike (Pattingham), nice layouts guys, but they were always in deep conversation when I passed by.

Hope everyone who went had a good time too.

Hi Nick

It was good to meet you too!

Sue and I had a great two days at the show. I am sitting in our B&B tapping this out on my 'phone so I will post more on Tusday once we get home to a keyboard.

Ralph ;-)

Doug, i guess its all based on Fleischmann road system is my first thought, but like Phill says generally a good magnet on a track alla Michael Bentine, the bike as long as you get a wheel to turn via friction the legs are just cranks i guess but it is good!

it will most likely be the Faller rd system, a wire track is laid in a groove then covered ,the vehicles have
a magnet in them and a battery motor, they follow the wire along the rd. just google Faller systems.
