Well there doesn't appear to be a Forum area for Exhibition listings except perhaps YMR events..
- yes, there is one for those you've visited, this is notice of an exhibition to come
- So I'm posting in the NG section, but all of you should be interested in this show, if your in Cornwall ....

The 009NG Society have a show at Threemilestone Village Hall on 26th March,
some details can be found at http://www.009society.com/diary.php
however what is missing from that listing is a couple of good layouts in other than 009 scale :-

Dave T's Bridport Town and Chris Peacock's Calstock Cotehele
both worth seeing without any of the 009NG stuff.

Stubby47 and I are on the punters list!!! :lol:

Well, blow me down, even with this hint it took 2 scrolls down the topics listings before I found it - although I might concede that a couple of pints of Bass in the Union, Penzance at lunchtime may not exactly have helped the eyesight focusing....:shock:

Many thanks Robert for moving the topic.

So, another subtle way of getting the topic back up to the top of the 'Recent Topics' list - hopefully there will be more than Stubby47 and I at the show.

Now to get on with the results of the discussion at the Union at lunch time,
a cascading matrix for a 12 road fiddle yard and dead end sidings.......
See it's not all pleasure at lunch time,
well apart from the general discussion of the price of 1950's Rolls Royce's and pre-war Daimler 15's....

I would have loved to have been able to visit this show and also the recent NG show at Shepton Mallet but both are too far away and  impractical due  to health reasons so please pretty please can we have lots of photos and lengthy reports about the layouts there and anything new and interesting from the trade or societies.

A quick report for now about the show - I'll add more as I process the rest of the photos.

It was quite a good turn out, layout wise. As well as the excellent Bridport, there were 9 other layouts, from 009 to a live steam Gauge 1.

Trade-wise was from Mevagissy 's World of Trains shop (I think !) and the 009 Society's 2nd hand stall.

Centre of the main hall was Bridport. My youngest was invited to drive, and spent over2 hours shuffling trains about. He's getting quite an impressive cv of layouts - he's also driven a train on Buckingham GC amongst others.

If it's ok, rather than re-publish all the photos I took on here, I'll add a link to the RMweb page for each layout. But here is a taster of Bridport.  Link to Bridport photos








Cothele (Calstock) probably needs no introduction. Link to Cothele (Calstock)






Kernow Sand & Gravel is a small layout (:thumbs) consisting of a single loop with two sidings. It is rather well made, though, all the buildings blend together well. Link to Kernow Sand & Gravel
