On Sunday morning we managed to squeeze in a visit to the Cleethorpes MRS' exhibition before I had to come to work. If you missed it, make an effort to attend next year as it's a little gem of a show - despite the appearance of being a 'typical' small club show, they always have some excellent modelling on display and also the Scalefour Society has a distinct presence.
Which brings us nicely to Tredethy Wharf!
This is Ian johnson's first layout since returning to the hobby and it looks very good indeed! I've followed his progress on his blog for quite some time now. Once you've fuinished reading this, be sure to have a look at Ian's blog;
The layout has progressed very well, one end is looking very nice indeed. The track looks pretty good too - even signs of greased fishplates which I like to see.
Also now appearing are typical Cornish items of stock, and nothing can be more Cornish than china clay wagons!
To bolster the home stock, various 'guest' items were making appearances, and Thomas insisted that I take a photo of 'the green tank engine'!
It's a layout to keep an eye on for the future and one which, I hope, will inspire others to take up P4 too.
And finally, our journey back took us passed one of the many 'proper' signal boxes for which North Lincolnshire still provides a home.
