Warley Model Railway Show

So, today I went along to the Warley National Model Railway show.

I had a good time there catching up with a few people and grabbed a few bargains and some tools.

Didn’t really get chance this year to see any layouts as I wanted to also check out the memorabilia convention on in hall 9 – damn long walk from hall 5 to 9!! – the walking around and so on hampered my ability to stand much sadly or keep a steady hand – the pain and fatigue when it starts getting worse causes shakes – hence lack of photos. I did see a little bit of Taff Vale tho at the very end. Otherwise not a lot. But these things are about more than just the layout -am sure I missed seeing some amazing ones! (some I’d seen at other shows) – as it’s a good opportunity to socialise and get bits and bargains and avoid having to wait for Mr Postman!

So purchases?

* Desk vice – been needing one for ages, got one which swivels.
* Storage boxes – Will be useful for my jewellery making items!
* Pin vice
* Wire bender – again useful for jewellery making too
* Genesis Nuclear flask wagon kit
* Mercian 0-4-0 DM WD kit

And other items.

I also bought some nice sci fi related items from the memorabilia show – mostly dr who πŸ™‚

A long tiring day, which was very much worth it. Look forward to next year πŸ™‚
