As usual, the sheer number of exhibits on show was fantastic, with some seriously rare and valuable pieces of equipment on show. This show largely focuses on the toy steam aspect of the hobby, focusing more on Mamod and Bowman rather than the larger model engines often seen at exhibitions.
I had planned on taking my Maxitrak steam wagon up to mess around with outside, however, a section of my train journey back required a replacement bus service and I didn't fancy having it thrown about in the underbelly of a bus. Next year though I plan to exhibit up there again.
I shall probably post two or three posts of things I found interesting over the next few days.
A twice full size Mamod SR1a Steam Roller...
...and a half full size one!
The fantastic new Mamod SP8 beam engine...may just have to buy one of these!
And finally, this gorgeous stationary engine, the styling of this really ticks all my boxes!
As I say, more to follow!
