Had the "pleasure" of going to Spalding exhibition today with "westerner",,,, I wouldn't register an official grievance but I was slightly disappointed,,, why you ask,,, well we had both seen enough after just under 2 hours and that included a 15 minute coffee break. All this fun for £6.00 at concession rates!!
It was OK,,, well it would be as Gresley Beat was there,, but apart from that and an S4 Lancs & Yorks layout not much else took my fancy.
I was hoping to buy a book I was looking for and the choice of books was poor to say the least.
And just in case anybody from Spalding club reads this then can I politely suggest letting proud young parents in with a 2 seater [side by side seating] buggy which was approximately 4 feet wide into your already cramped 6 feet aisles was not conducive to a happy visitor experience!!!!
Gridlock,,,, and lets be honest the darling kinder were not in the least bit interested in the exhibits.
That buggy would block the M25,,, never mind a model railway exhibition.
Anyway on to more pleasant things,,,, also recently visited Little Bytham again and our host was conned into reproducing the wonderful shot from my last post of a B3 earning a crust.
See the comparison above,, many thanks Tony for a wonderful day out and a smashing pic of Valour.
Was it really July when I last posted,,,, no excuse,,, whatsoever,,, other than to say I have been very busy getting ready for Manchester exhibition which is the first weekend in December,,, if you want to see it for real then please come along,,,,,
After his outstanding debut at Crawley I'm pleased to advise Neville and his hat will also be in evidence and if you feel the urge to get litigious with anybody we can introduce you to Roger & apparently he is very good at that sort of thing,,,,
Roger I really do think I need some counselling after the trauma of that 4x4 buggy,,, my life will never be the same again,,,, I am finding it difficult to concentrate,,, off my beer,,, curry,,, in fact everything that a good weekend in Manchester could possibly offer.
