Attended the Telford NG show today, here are some shots:

Calstock (Cotehele) in 7mm was nicely done and friendly – the periscope lent to Thomas was great fun.  The original England loco was great too.

There appeared to be some kind of diorama competition.  These three caught the eye… Manod quarry art storage, Duffield Bank and Fairbourne…

and I’m always impressed by the detail and scenics of american layouts even if I’m not that bothered by the stock…

Had a good chat with Pete at Backwoods.  I fancy a Darjeeling B class tank sometime, but it’s clear that finding a place for a DCC chip might be a challenge – look where the motor has to go!

and I also picked up the etches for 24, the NWNGR replica summer carr as running on the WHR today.  I had previously made a kit bash attempt to model this, but it didn’t stand up to the other etched kits so Allen nicely etched this for me.

If you do a model of Adrian Shooter's B class you can a) semi-legitimately run it on Rhyd Ddu and b) put the chip in the tender.
