Test Valley Sidings has its show debut at the Basingstoke show on 12th and 13th March, so I need to pull my finger out and get it looking a little more presentable. This is even more of a challenge since I am in the States for 3 weeks before the show getting back to Heathrow on the Thursday before, so I may need you to give me a nudge if I fall asleep at the controller because of jet lag!
I have put together a very basic lighting rig, am slowly working through getting the layout to run reasonable, adjusting couplings and making the scenery a little more presentable so hopefully it should be in a reasonable state, although unfinished – we won’t open that can of worms!!! 🙂
Certainly enough for me to consider it good enough to show, it then went on to another show in May of that year. I learnt from the Basingstoke show it needed a little something so the running line had a shuttle unit fitted, which keeps something running even when shunting stopped while I was chatting or drinking tea. As a result I felt far more satisfied showing at the show in May. Its had no further invites since and sits in the garage of brackets above Cliddesden acting as a test track fro stock etc.
