Our grateful thanks go to all the volunteers who manned the stall over the weekend, in particular to Iain MacIntosh who managed all three days plus setting- up first thing on Friday/ dismantling on Sunday AND working for his employer in between!
As ever, the event has been a great success, generating funds for the project at Whitrope during a traditionally a quiet time of the year, as well as spreading the word about the Association, its aims and activities.
If anyone has any quality second hand railway books (no more magazines !!) or memorabilia to replenish our depleted sales stocks with, please bring them along to Whitrope when the centre is open OR get in touch at email@example.com and we’ll try and make arrangements to collect if we can.
From a personal perspective, I managed my first ever stint at the show on Friday (only a couple of hours) so can now pay testament to the hard graft that goes into it (not to mention diplomacy skills). I also got a couple of lovely black and white prints of my beloved BR Standard Class 3 moguls PLUS avoided a trip to the shops with my wife/ daughters, so that was me happy!
