I'd been to this one before so knew roughly what to expect. This was more or less a shopping trip to see if any bargain bits could be picked up for Hopwood. This in itself was vaguely successful and more on that later. The show? You'll remember in the old days when exhibition layouts had no lights, were on tables and had no drapes or any form of outward presentation. We left all that behind in 1990 didn't we? It would seem not. There were some stand out points: Noel Dolimore's tiny 009 stuff and the 7mm trams (which didn't seem to move). Other than that, pretty poor. As if no one had bothered to get out and see how exhibitions should be done. This was not a tiny village or society area group open day, but a major (railway) town club show. For some s/h type shopping it was worth the trip, but...
Catering: a very basic 2, only cake and tea available.
