It’s been a while since I’ve gone so long without posting, but it’s been a very busy few days showing Dduallt at Perth.
It was busy but also hugely enjoyable.
In my opinion this is the best exhibition in Scotland and comparable with the really good ones down south too.
If you've never been don't dismiss it on account of the distance. Not only is at a great show but you can combine it with a visit to one of the most stunning parts of this island.
The show fills two very large halls and attracts a very high quality of layouts, and as an exhibitor you are looked after royally by the Perth MRG - where else do you get a dram of finest malt whisky brought round to you as you operate?
There was a terrific social evening on the Saturday where we were taken by bus to a barbecue at the Wester Pickston Railway - a charming miniature gauge line running through the woods with trains steamed up just for us.
The layout ran well over the two days of the show and half a dozen members of the Greenock club had their first taste of operating it.
Nearly everything from the stock box got a run over at some point over the weekend, including a few interlopers.
The next show for us will be giving Bron Hebog its Scottish debut at our home show in Greenock in October.
