A very cold morning when we set off at 6.05 heading for the exhibition. We arrived just after 7.30 and shortly afterwards Laurie arrived.
King125 and partyspirtz turned up soon afterwards and the stand was up and running quickly. Laurie had brought along his laptop and monitor to demo
a couple of new activities he had written for the Evesham Branch. John (partyspiritz) had his machine along to give a sneak preview of
his progress on Gowin to Knowear and to provide assistance to a user who had previously had help from the Support Desk but wanted
some one on one help.
The exhibition was located in two main halls and several classrooms with layouts, societies and trade stands liberally spread around. A good
selection of layouts in different scales and gauges including the N gauge airport with intersite overhead tramway.
We were joined by Laurie (LAD491), Terry (king125), John (partyspiritz) and young lad Sean. Thanks for your help as always.
All the usual MSTS routes were demonstrated including Lauries new activities for Evesham Branch. The Isle of Wight Island Line
now launched as a CD Version was also on show.
The DCC Workshop also attracted a number of visitors to discuss the benefits and pitfalls of changing over to DCC or starting out in "DC" or "DCC".
The limitations or benefits of certain control systems and the anecdotal evidence of problems that appear to exist with some loco decoders.
The photographs on this page and the larger ones they link to are much smaller than the full size originals which are 3072 x 2304
and around 1.2Mb each. If you would like a full size copy then please email our support desk firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our thanks to David Coates and the Letchworth Model Railway Society for the invitation, the refreshments and the location.
Our thanks to all those that gave of their time to help us demonstrating, to those who dropped by for a chat
and to the members of the public who visited the exhibition over the weekend.
We hope to see you all here again next year.
