Right, my case is packed and I’m ready for the journey across the Pennines to Wigan for the Wigan Finescale Railway Modellers Exhibition. I’m going as an operator for David Scott’s EM Gauge layout, ‘Stainsby’. A lovely model depicting somewhere in the Ryedale area of North Yorkshire, just up my street!
I first operated David’s layout at the Middlesbrough Exhibition last year and David offered me to operate at Newcastle last September, but I had to pull out due to ill health but not the case for Wigan.
I’m heading off tomorrow, to help set up late afternoon, ready for doors opening on Saturday morning. The Show is held at Robin Park Arena & Sports Centre Loire Drive Wigan WN5 0UH and is opening ours are 10-6pm on Saturday, and 10-4.30pm on Sunday.
If you are going, do pop by and say hello!
