Great Electric Train Show 2015

Canal

I've just time for a quick post on this event:

Cake - Excellent. Strawberry and white chocolate. Soft, not too sweet and nicely decorated.

Layouts - Also excellent. I don't think there was a duff one there. Several I hadn't seen before and many I'd like to see again when I have more time.

Trade - Very good indeed. You might expect lots of box-shifters but I managed to pick up some specialist bits. It might be that I was the only person to buy a set of broaches but at least I could replace the set with a broken one (thanks Dad). I enjoyed lots of chat with the trade too, in fact wandering around before the doors opened, I was amazed how many people I knew and knew me. Too many to talk to each one.

Workwise, I spent a couple of hours on the DOGA stand fiddling with the AEC kit. Not much got done as there was loads of chat.

Anyway, head over to Flickr for more photos.
