16mm Association - 2009 National Garden Railway Show
This is a sight most of you don't get to see - Hall 2 at Stoneleigh virtually empty, just after 0730 on Show Day...........
....... with not a lot of people (or stands) yet arrived.
Have YOU ever seem Member - to Member Sales THIS quiet?
"Brian said he wanted a better PA - here it is arriving!"
Other people were also recording the occasion.
Rob Bennett had his usual eclectic mix of figures - how many can YOU identify?
Jon Mead borrowed my camera a couple of times, with the (rare) result that I actually get to appear on my own Web page!
Jon and Doug Willsmer - two more members of the Help & Advice Team.
Jon Orson (half of the main organising duo) in "Oh no - it's a camera!" mode!
John and Andy Cooper (the other half of the main organising duo) enjoy a well-earned coffee.
Meanwhile, outside the crowds were gathering....................
.......... ready to storm the building once the doors were opened.
"I have a complaint! I can't get near enough to the Help & Advice Stand to get Helped & Advised!"
Tag in "loco clinic" mode.......... (Jon Mead)
Brian & Chairman Nigel exchange a few words (Jon Mead)
Tag mends the MDLR's "Lady Sybil" (Jon Mead)
The Junior Wagon Train was a great success - see the video HERE.
After the Show - it's break down time!
Let's get those tables down...........
