Amersham -the run down. Parking-10, food -9, layouts-7, audience-9, Unnycoombe- 6.5. Nice friendly show. I hadn't been before even as a punter; very much a mix of modellers and families. Good school dinner type lunch. Unnycoombe, despite getting an awful lot of praise and three and a half invites behaved rather erratically. All the problems that we had envisaged with N gauge that had so far not really appeared reared their ugly heads yesterday with both of us getting a little frustrated. The morning was fine, but by lunchtime three items of motive power had packed up and the couplings seemed particularly awkward. We need to think this one through.
