A little inspiration…

I thought about going to Railwells 2018 last Saturday, but having just been to Shepton Mallet (just down the road) the week before, I couldn’t face another holiday Saturday on the road.  Seeing this video, I rather wish that I had gone.  Well worth watching the full 25 minutes.

What really impresses me about this show, is that it is often difficult to tell the difference between 2mmFS, ‘N’, 4mm and 7mm layouts.  It’s often the coupler types that give it away.

Layouts on display, and I think most of them were in the video, were….

Bodmin & Wadebridge Railway – 2mm Finescale
Lower Rose Goods – P4 Finescale
Pwllheli – P4 Finescale
Wantage – 009 Scale
The Worlds End – 00 / 4mm Scale
Bridge Sidings – 3/4mm to 1 Foot
Mount Woodville – P4 Finescale
Ballyconnell Road – 3mm Finescale
Plaxtol Road – 0 / 7mm Scale
Ashburton – N / 2mm Finescale
Amiens 1918 – 009 Scale (My WW1 Trench Railway)
Navigation Road – EM Scale
Callaton – 2mm Finescale
Bordesley North – 2mm Finescale
MSW – 2mm Finescale
Clutton – P4 Finescale (Final Public Show)

The minute Bridge Sidings (about T scale) was driven by a strimmer mechanism.  There is a very narrow slot next to one rail to drive the loco along…

I have enough problem seeing ‘N’ gauge, thank you!

From the sublime to the ridiculous.  I’m sure Thomas the Tank Engine wasn’t this exciting when I watched it with the kids.  I suppose that Beyoncé WAS a kid then….

    Wished I’d gone too. Didn’t go for much the same reasons.
