still it means I can go and hide in the workshop over Christmas and not have to watch the TV
I promise I wont tell as I was stood by the side of you when you bought the engine from Phil ( Forest classics)
I know where it's hidden so it may get steamed when the workshop arrives unless the parents realise what it is and hide it first !!!!
although I haven't been paid for it yet so may steam it anyway if they don't pay up

One of the best day's ever !!
I went into the main hall about lunch time and there were kids on the floor playing with toys, no not big boys, real kids with real toys, chasing a Mamod wagon, brilliant  !
The young lad with his car that won was fantastic and, the little lad that won the steam raffle and engine had been at my stall with his mum a few mins earlier looking at engines, mum told me how he wanted an engine - he's got one  - Result ! 
Cracking catering, great organisation and some fantastic displays, That Britannia on Mad for steam's table was smashing
Thanks all
Cheers
Mark

Got to agree 100% with all Mark has said it was indeed a cracking day if not one of their best 😉...

There was a special atmosphere, I don't know why, maybe so many fantastic models.
I got to appreciate it very well as I spent extra time going round "judging".
