Here is another photo also taken at Stevenage in January on a mobile phone ……………….

The layout now has a tag line added to its name, it's now officially 'BEIJIAO - REAL WORKING STEAM IN 2004!'

See us at Fareham in October and/or Warley in November.

Nothing for months and now three posts in one evening!

We moved house in December - so that I could get a bigger and better shed! Yes, that was the only reason we moved!!

So the shed has now arrived - inside dimensions are 23ft x 9ft 3inches.

The shed has been fully insulated and lined and now plastered...……………….

A couple of weeks ago it looked like this (the oven is not for the shed -it's for our new kitchen!)

And now here is that same wall today ………………..

Hi Mark

A bit more time consuming than some other forums, but no problem for me. Went into my flickr account and copied the link and then pasted it in here.

I am no computer expert and so I have no idea why you are having a problem - sorry.

The Warley show was a mixture...…………

Saturday was the worst day we have ever had at an exhibition!!!!!!

Electronics/DCC problems were terrible. We kept trains running for the public but at such a cost to the operators - STRESS! STRESS! STRESS!

On Saturday night I was thinking of cancelling all future shows - I could not put my friends through this again.


On Sunday morning before we opened to the public a DCC expert came over to help us. We explained the problem - in less than 10 seconds he had the answer!!!

RESULT : Sunday was the best day we have ever had at an exhibition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a link to a video taken at the show.

Unfortunately it was taken right at the end of Sunday and we had already packed away a lot of stock and so you see the same train several times. Also we can do better but this is the best so far ……………
