Not travelling meant I could get to the Spalding Model Railway Exhibition for the first time since moving out this way.
I have to say it was quite a good show, though I didn't spend that long inside, a feat achieved by deliberately avoiding the trade stands. To be honest when a show has Pempoul and Gresley beat in the list of layouts you know it is going to be quite good.
Gresley Beat isn't my kind of layout, but remains a real crowd pleaser and you can see why.

I think this is Eastwood Vermont. The layout lighting defeated all the white balance settings on my XE-1
