...is a phrase regularly uttered by big Arnie, but its not one we'd have associated with Coldblow Lane.
With Joes' recent stock drama subsiding, his thoughts had turned towards a new small, quick build, layout the could host the parcels stock he found in a shoebox (in amongst his shoes, bizarrely). However, following discussions with Andy Strathie of the Greenock club, Coldblow Lane has been invited to the Greenock Model Railway show, Kirk Park, Greenock, PA16 8DD, 21st and 22nd of October. The newfound parcels stock is being brought up to standard and Coldblow Lane, now renamed Gallowmere is having a few tweaks made to it.
It will be our first time exhibiting at this show and all going well, Gallowmere will be back on the circuit.
Eaglesham performed very well in its latest upgrade at the recent Ayr Model Railway Show. We had no problems with the DCC system or chips, and no problems with the Megapoints control board. There where a few niggles that were solved during the show, but nothing major. All in all a very successful weekend.
Thanks to Ayr MRG for their invitation, another good local show!
