Spent the majority of the weekend at the show looking at layouts or buying photos from Stewart Blencowe's stand. Mike Corp's brilliant 3mm scale "West Harptree" was there and as well as taking even more photos of this inspirational layout I spent a far part of Sunday operating it as well! The running on this layout is faultless with there being no stalling and finger poking required at all. The only time a loco refused to budge for me was down to my error. I just wish I could achieve this level of reliability with all my locos. Next time you see this layout at a show take some time to really watch it and appreciate 3mm modelling at its very best. This view shows virtually the entire station area and you can see the layout in a forthcoming edition of "Railway Modeller".
