Three to O

Nigel and I managed to squeeze in two shows yesterday. First the 3mm Society open day at West Byfleet. Interesting stuff and lots to buy with Hennock and Wantage in attendance. My only gripe was the layout of the room: sales stand apart, the racks of goodies were in corners making it very difficult to look at things if more than one person was doing so. Ditto with lunch as there would have been nowhere to sit if we'd had it.

Second up was Tolworth showtrain, principally to see Wadebridge the 19th century piece that made the planned O gauge layout look more feasible. Lovely exhibition which we could have done with more time at.

  1. Missed the 3mm open day but then I didn't know it was on. Went to Tolworth yesterday, very good show as usual but the quietest I've ever known it. I had quite a long chat with the owner of "Wadebridge".....he said he was wondering how long he could carry on showing the layout as the card buildings are beginning to get damaged by transporting it. Quite agree, it's a lovely layout; the other standard gauge exhibit that I enjoyed was Yeoford Junction.....perhaps the future for "Proper" modelling (at least in standard gauge) lies in the distant past?.
