Only a couple of weeks but Blackburn club show coming up soon. It is their 50th year as well(a lot of clubs seem to have either reached that point or are about to) so should be a bit more special I hope.
I am there with my WW1 layout, its last outing as I have found I want to do something else in time for 2018. I may be selling off spare items(War surplus sale). Layout is incorrectly marked on some info , but it is 1/35th scale on 16.5mm track not HoN(?????), one of the problems of haveing non standard scale/gauge combinations.
I plan to have some of my 3D printed track on show as well(space permitting) which I can run some spare WW1 locos on.

Simon,

Given the layout you are taking.
I think you will like and appreciate Mike Shakespeare's Hintern den Vorne..

He also has a couple of Dockside Layouts

Hope you enjoy yourself and have no problems at the exhibition.

Clive

Bob, thanks for that link, when I tried their website the other day, it just came up blank!
Good thing is that because it is local, I can pop home to pick up anything I have forgotten. I did put together an exhibition work box/case, but I have been borrowing things out of it since last show Rolling Eyes .
I won't have enough space for my stretcher(one less thing to fit in car), and hopefully will still just have enough room for a small display/demo area.

I am working on some exciting new ideas for my 3D printed track, maybe something for those who think code 75 track is better than code 100. News on my webpage.
