Railex Taunton 2012.
Started from home in the early hours we arrived after 8 o'clock and set up quickly. Testing the layout took but a few minutes-all down to the prep done the previous week. Off to the restaurant for a bacon bap which saw us set up for the day.
The Saturday passed very swiftly- the mark of a good show. Thanks to those who stopped by to say hello and discuss 3mm.
The accommodation was first class and only a short walk into Taunton saw us comfortably ensconced
Sunday dawned with a full English Breakfast and another busy day. At on point it was like a 3mm Society meeting with many members having made the effort to attend.
I must compliment the organisers for the catering-home made Steak & Kidney pie on the Saturday and a full Beef roast on Sunday.
Packing up was done in minimal time and the homeward journey made in pouring rain. Still we were home bymid evening- just got to get it all out of the car and stored .
Ther was some layouts I had not seen before- several pictures of Kingswear in 2mm and one of Bodmin -it is hard to think that Bodmin is 40 odd years old but still looks good, a credit to the builders.
