Following up on the question of who went, which layout was best. There was very few Modern image with the 50s and 60s being the most common There were a few I would give high regards to. The 2 ground floor 00 layouts and that 7mm with that Garrett :lol:

My Mum (and me) really liked number 7 Queslett from the Warley MRC, built on comission to Virgin, but runs most things (inc GNER 91s and GNER Eurostar) it also had a high level local line with DMUs running round.
The thing we liked was the constant running at times, you didn't have to stand and watch for ages while the next train came along.

But one of the best also on the ground floor was 29, Halston Junction also from the Warley MRC, which was a BR Era Live Steam impresive length layout, which had 2 people constantly employed at the back toping up the live fluid!

and 125 Blea Moor was a nice looking layout, but got a bit bored after the train went past!

And if anyone wants a program, we ended up with a couple of spares, all un used!
