    Always a good selection of real ale in the Railwaymans Arms plus locos in the yard and perhaps a steam special to enjoy! We have been going for years. I don’t know about a secret society though!

    The Saturday night Fish n Chip special from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and back works a treat too. Usually a DMU but this year due to DMU servicing it is a loco hauled set and worth the dart up the valley.

    Unfortunately, it now looks like I won’t be there, Mum’s more important...

    Enjoy!

    My first time at the show in any guise (I was operating on Amalgamated Wagon), and I was impressed with the show all round: quality of traders and layouts, and the overall friendliness. Impressed.

    Yes, we did. You were also correct about the motor I bought— too big for any of my builds!
