I am pleased to report that I have been invited to attend this show with my trade stand - loads of Irish and UK stock - and I will be there. One week later I will be at the North Down show at Bangor Grammar School for their 2-day show. Chris Dyer Toys & Trains.

I am hopping up and down in agony, and an attack of the Multiple Conniptions and Screaming Fits is imminent, as I will have to miss this - I'll be entertaining American tourists that day in Killarney.

 

Awwwesome.

What could be more entertaining that an exhibition of the quintessential irish railway ... and you don't have to entertain in the Kingdom both days surely?

Really looking forward to this exhibition. I've heard many positive things about it and the quality of layouts it attracts.

A very clean looking 082 shunts preserved locomotives out of Connolly Shed in preparation for the Wexford Show this weekend.

My diorama as well as others and many great layouts will be making an appearance.

Say hi if you come along, I will be operating the American themed 'Bushville' layout built by WMRC over the weekend.

It certainly was worth the 402 mile round trip yesterday to this excellent exhibition,

Well done to the Lads at the Wexford club for organizing it,

It was great to meet some old friends and also some new ones, I managed to pick up some IE Cravens coaches for 30 euro each, from the local Wexford club stand there, which was less than what some of the trade stands were looking for,

Well worth a visit if you can make the trip.:tumbsup:

I had a slightly shorter 250 mile round trip. My first time at this great show. I'll be back next year.

I headed down as well from Dublin. Was my first time attending. Well, well worth the visit! Lots of excellent layouts, both static and operational covering the rail, marine, military and haulage industries. Lots of space to view the layouts and some great chats along the way. Definitely well worth the visit! I, too, will be back next year.

Unfortunately missed the legendary WMRC layout exhibition due to a last minute hitch that took me 250 miles in the wrong direction. Had planned to come down by train on Easter Monday. I've heard nothing but superlatives for this show, it's spacious venue and the vast number of excellent layouts it hosts. Will definitely make it next year. Looking forward to seeing a few pics and videos in due course.
