Model railway shows can keep you fit. At least working Guildex, the major show for O gauge modellers each year, keeps me tired, if not exactly fit.
The step tracker on my phone said I did really well - because the day is spent running from one side of the Telford International Centre to the other with products for photographing.
Each trip takes around 5 minutes, dodging swinging backpacks and people who aren't looking where they are going because they are so blinded by the excitement of a room full of trainz. This is carried out while carting a valuable (top price £2750) model. And in a hurry.
This year I clocked 21 different products - if you count the packs of figures as 1, or well over 30 if they don't.
My problem this year was that the event clashed with the Harbury beer festival, so I was determined to be out of the door around 3pm. I managed it!
This limited my time for layout photography, but I did manage some snaps, which can be found on Flickr.
