Our experiences and model displays at the Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace ...

2018 - 19th-21st January

Chris R and Graham J attended on Friday. With it being quite busy in morning but tailed off in the afternoonl. Toon tanks proved popular (like the eggplanes)..
Martin H and Aaron arrived for the Saturday session after a cold and wet journey. There was a lot of interest in our display, as at one point there was a queue to take photos, a good day was had by both.
Sunday saw Chris K, Dave W, Brian B, Ed & Matt R brave the elements for the last day of the show.
There was a lot of interests with a steady stream of questions and photos about the display, even a photo shoot by SAM for the February edition. It was a very enjoyable day for all.

2017 - 20th-22nd January

With wails of "woe, thrice woe" ringing in our ears from Chairman Dave over the amount of paperwork he has to complete for this show, we headed north to the Alexandra Palace with our usual enthusiasm. Whilst there were some planned changes to set-up and break-down for us, it all turned out pretty much the same as last year. Chris R, Brian and Graham J took care of Friday, Tim Ev, Martin and Aaron were in attendance on Saturday and Chairman Dave, Chris K, Brian, Ed and Matthew took care of Sunday. Chris L did his bit here and there over all three days when not with his model railway chums. Keith also paid us a visit on Friday to let us know how his house renovation is going - or not, as the case may be! Tim Ea visited on Saturday.

Once again it seems we all had a good time, traffic to the table was pretty constant across the three days and we think the visitors enjoyed stopping by for a chat and a look at our models. Hopefully we may see some again at club meetings in due course.
