I went for two of the four days. The show finishes Sunday afternoon. Impressions below, and photos to follow…..
The show was up to the usual standard. The N-gauge modular layout had its usual mix of very good, and perhaps more average, modelling. There were some interesting HO and HO-m layouts as well, but perhaps not as good as last year’s, when two Dutch layouts really stood out.
- Set up was very quick, as we weren’t on the end of a long line of modules and having to wait for everyone else.
- Operation was fun, as we had control of a major junction. It got a bit lively at times, with trains coming from three directions.
- The Thursday night social was very good.
- The barrel of Sussex bitter ran out half way through Thursday night. I guess we had too many vistors through the day testing it (to say nothing of the ESNG members).
