Just got back from the Slot Festival.
I had an excellent time.
Nice to meet some of the faces from SF.
I thought the HO guys in particular had made a most impressive effort with their fast track.
Thanks to everyone who made it a great day.
Yes a good event with very large crowds. The swap area was particularly difficult to negotiate!
Even though its good if events are in the midlands, Gaydon is not the best venue to be honest as for many its very difficult to get to. I only live near Bedford and it took me hours as it is a trip across country. The queue to get in didn't help eveyones mood as the wind was really quite bad, but there was plenty to see once inside.
As a scenic modeller I was a little disappointed with the lack of scenic / slotted tracks, but there was more than enough to keep me interested.
By the way if you like motor museums and live a little further south (Befordshire / Milton Keynes way) there is a great little car museum that has some unusual cars in it thats worth a visit. Lots of cars that the average man in the street used to own, but are now getting rare.
Talking of difficult to get to - a friend was planning to get there by public transport... nearest train station was 8 miles and there were poor bus links with none running on Sunday! He was pretty keen on attending so ended up hiring a car for the day.
