TINGS

Postby Grahame » Sun Aug 21, 2011 8:49 pm

The International N Gauge Show is less than three weeks away now. Time to order a discounted ticket if you haven't done so already;

Presumably everyone is going ....... after all it is the only all N gauge jamboree of the year. Just about every N gauge trader, manufacturer and supplier will be there as well as a large range of N gauge layouts.

That rather depends on where you are. If you're a long way away, then yeah. :lol:

Actually its quite near the middle of the country - not that far from Meriden; the traditional centre of England.

The show is intended only for those in England, then?

Eh???? That'd be like saying that ScotRail in Glasgow was only intended for those in Scotland, and moaning it was a long way from London and ought be closer. :roll:

It's just a fact that Leamington is near the centre of England - there is no connection between that and what the intended market is. Wherever it is there will always be those who have to travel a long way. But perhaps being an 'International' Show it should be in the centre of the earth. :lol:

Sorry, Grahame, I didn't realise you were just quoting an interesting fact. Did you know that Leamington Spa is an anagram of "Signalman Poet"?

I can't remember if I'm going this year or not, I remember vaguely that I agreed to go to a couple of exhibitions but I think they were the O Gauge guild and Warley.

If I get a phone call or a ticket through the post I guess I'll see you there, if not I may head down anyway.

Last time I was at TINGS was 2009, how we laughed at those 2wd drive cars being dragged out of the car park by a tractor.

I'll be there both days with Bishop's Bridge, really looking forward to it, always a highlight of my model railway calender!

Cheers,
Benn.

Alas this is the wrong time of year for me to get the time to go ( 2 days off in 2 months) if it were 2 weeks later in the year id have more luck, hope everyone enjoys it and takes some pictures to post after for us less fortunate,,,, :D

I'll be there, my second time.

I'm also bringing a couple of friends who've not visited before.
