Hi Guys,

I have a friend who is due to retire soon and will be moving into the model building hobby though he wishes to do a massive working train set which his grand children can destroy (if they are like my twins that is)

Now he is up for going to this show but I don't want to drag him there for nothing, so can anyone answer the following?

1, Do they have train related kits etc
2, Who's going?

Even if the event is not geared towards his future interest 'rail'; there will be paint, glue, tools, scenic stuff, hobby reps, etc. It is always good to mingle and find inspiration. Last year I went to a big model rail event and came home with an Olds Cutlass (AMT kit) and found some unique miniature LED lighting components. My main interests are car models and figures.
Cheers Eh!

I don't know if you already look or not a the show website. Ifone  of the exhibitors do rail road related items, probably they will have a few.

Also you can contact the I.P.M.S. that they manage the show.

Went to Telford yesterday and collected Nige (arni) on the way.

Had a great time and here are a few pics of the competition entries which I took.























And a 1:1 Tank!

Thanks for showing Ash. That bridgelayer alone was probably worth the trip!
