I went this morning - excellent - particularly enjoyed the model of the original Alloa station - superb detail. Special mention also to 'Hallside' (Newton).

Came home 22.50 lighter as I purchased Jack Kernahan's Cathcart Circle book - fortunately they put it in a bag for me as I got a Circle train home - no one would have sat in the same carriage as me if they saw me reading that...

I was there last year whilst on business in Glasgow and met most of my friends in the hobby from south of the Border, hardly saw any Scots there!! My previous visit to this exhibition was in the days of it being held at the Maclellan Galleries in Sauchiehall Street in the 1970s!!

One year I would love to exhibit one of my micro-layouts there - but that's now a bucket list item.
