My ticket for the Warley show at the NEC arrived today. Looks like I will be going on Sunday 21st. Is anyone else going to be there and would like to meet up at some point during the day?

Actually I will be there too, all going well. I'm heading up that way from Melbourne, Australia. How about we meet at the Penlan display?

Cobber55, Penlan, Super D & Piran

Very happy to meet up, we can decide where and the time a bit closer to the event but Penlan's stand sounds like a good idea.

Dave , I'll make a point of popping by to say hello. Will be good to see you again.

Any others going.

Nick

I will be there both days with Pattingham. It's only 10 mins from home so I can be back quickly should Denny need me, although she is between treatments and her 22nd December operation, so all should be well.

Look forward to that, there is of course the after hours session(s), all I know is I'm in the same hotel as the South Wales (Cardiff etc.,)  lads, and they have a routine, which tends to be outside the norm.....  York can be a blast with them, so all options are open at Warley.... even at my age   :cool:  

Don't forget I'm from outside the normal areas of activity now - West Cornwall, so I shall be lost without ancient standing stones as reference points.........

I will be there with Mevaman and also help from the former Bachmann sales manager.  I think our stand number is A32 from memory, conveniently located next to Mevagissey Models!

Dear all

If you are meeting up next to the stand, I am sure that Chris and I will have built up a huge thirst and would love some refreshment.  I take my tea white, no sugar!!!!

Seriously, all YMRers come and say hello.  If we aren't too busy we'd love a chat.

Sue and I should be there for both days, we have tickets and are booked into our favourite B&B in Ironbridge, about three quarters of an hour away hour away but well worth the drive. Ironbridge is fantastic place in the autumn and it is full of nice eateries.



We intend to arrive for opening and will spend the whole day there on Saturday. Sunday we will be there again for the opening and stay as long as it takes to see the rest. Looking forward to it this year...

Stop us and say hello, you will recognise me I will be with Sue

Ralph ;-)

Why not take a detour during the day and meet some of us at stand A30 at midday on Sunday.

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!

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.

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.

The bicycle has either two steel strips across the bottom of the wheels - or two of those very strong micro magnets, not in line along the wheels, they can be seen when the cyclist is coming towards you on the video clip, there's a magnet on the the loop under the board.

There are two perspex discs which revolve from the friction on the road surface and the legs are basicaly cranks, the speed of movement bluring the finer detail.   Obviously there's no battery motor on the bike......

That's how it was described to me, and I'm sure it's the Faller system, or more likely a home made version.

Somebody said at the show the trains going over the bridge also looped under the layout, as there are 6 wheel coaches in one of the trains, I'm wondering - but of course that may be some trick of sight, you see what you want to :lol:

The trains were on spikes attached to a conveyor belt.  You could see from a small viewing window to one side and they looked really odd as they came over the end of the conveyor!

It was a shame that not many people came to the agreed RV point at 1200 on Sunday as there were a lot of us there.  I marked Nick, Ralph, Andrew and me as present.   Everyone else was marked as absent, apart from Bob who has a note from Justine :roll:

Please Sir, sorry Sir but I was on my lunch break at 12 on Saturday and driving trains at 12 on Sunday.  Or was I somewhere else meeting some other bunch of folks?  Heck I can't remember.

Good weekend though.

How big is this Warley show?

For example so most of us could understand now many Carn Brae halls would fit into the area used for the actual Warley show

Sorry about that, but as I was with Pete Waterman then, receiving the LMS Society Award, and following that having a chat  with Bob Essery and Dave Hunt about the times we had operating Bob's Dewsbury, then onto lunch were I met up with Lord and Lady MacAlpine, something had to give.  Oh, and a layout to operate, crew to keep in order.......:pathead

The floor area of Hall 5 is 24,870 sq. metres. 

Warley NEC rented, I think somewhere around 16,000 sq. metres.

According to the Carn Brea Sports Hall blurb they have an 8 court badminton facility, that's 1,221 sq. metres

So that equates to about 13 Carn Brea's that the Warley Show rent's - there is of course 'outside' dining tables, plenty of chairs to rest etc too, and ALL on one level as opposed to that very narrow stair case at Carn Brea etc., etc.,

Chris

I turned up at 12 noon on the Saturday and spoiled the meeting of the Apathy Society so went on my way.

Had to return to my accommodation at 12 noon on the Sunday to collect my watch which I had left behind, otherwise I would have been there.

Well guys, Chris and I were most hurt that you did not provide us with copious refreshment as requested.  At least the boss didn't get drunk - the stand was so tight that I didn't fancy having him falling over everything!!

Seriously, we were pretty busy on the stand and I did not have time to take photos. 

I didn't think it was as busy as when I have been in previous years.

Enjoyed it anyway.

I made it on the Sunday and really enjoyed it. My apologies for not making any arranged meet. For what it is worth I had worked every day for the past three weeks including the previous two weekends on a big hospital software upgrade. I was just glad to have a day off and get there at all.

Penlan was impressive as were some other layouts. De Hezelpoort 1927 was a standout for me. It was almost impossible to get near it. It was surrounded by admirers every time I went past. I met the Modelrailway.TV crew and had a good chat with them. I also learnt a fair bit more about the Hornby OO Live Steam from Adrian Campbell on his stand, which was next to the first OO Live Steam exhibition layout I have seen. Very nice. The good news on that front from Hornby is their live steam production is merely on hold until economic conditions are more favourable. There is a new model (an LMS Duchess) prototype already built by the original developer/inventor. There is also a hint of a Black 5 as well but I need to verify that. I certainly hope Hornby can take them up in due course.

: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
