Worthing spendthrift

Worthing is a funny show - it never seems to get very busy and yet they always seem happy with the actual gate numbers. It's also always full of interesting things; more on that later.  It's also where I tend to pick things up at good prices. Firstly Ron had gatecrashed the show (as he often seems to do) and was set up next to Rhiw and doing a roaring trade in BR totem signs at £35 a pop. I was hoping to see him at Fareham in a few weeks and get Rhiw signed up, so that saved the wait and he produced this in a couple of minutes for fifteen quid (vinyl lettering on white 1/4" sheet).
Aside from small drills which I needed and picked up from Squires, I found a Bachmann pannier-cheap because it had been detailed- and a new 56XX from the same company at £29 and £44 respectively. This nails down the possible GWR layout to S. Wales which is not a problem as the research is partly done. I just need the Middleton Press 'Valleys books to round that out.
