I wasn't going to mention it Peter, but you have noticed that as well! Anyway we are booked elsewhere this weekend, in the 'not so sunny' North West.

I can only assume that they take something different each year.

Don't think so, Mike, but I'm not saying out of sour grapes, it's just that sometimes you do wonder. As you can see, even Pete has noticed.

We should be down at Kingsfold weekend after next, last show of the year. Hope to have both Rustons there, if we can resolve tow vehicle issues.

Not from what I have seen Mike, though Alan Oglesby does vary his display between tea and laundry. When I entered the stipulation from Barry was that all engines had to be actually driving something as it is a working weekend but, at least when we went, some were not. He is in charge though so he can choose what he wants there. Years ago a few of our club members attended each year but their invites stopped arriving with no explanation, they just assumed that engines were not part of the show any longer so were really surprised when I actually got an entry.

No sour grapes here either Peter, just slightly puzzled! We usually find somewhere to go most weekends anyway. Barry used to visit the Cromford rally but I haven't seen him there for a year or two, however I realise that he does have some health issues.

Pete.

Laundry equipment I can understand, but tea?

Not referring particularly to this rally as it is not one I go to but as a visitor, I would be really miffed to turn up and pay my gate money only to find that engines were no longer on the bill. Actually, the Laughton Cuckoo fair was a bit like that this year with a very poor display (no offence to anyone there, just that the numbers were right down) so it is likely Lamport will be getting my money next time.

Thank you both, nice machine - I am duly enlightened (though I still have no idea what it does).

EDIT; I see also a Crossley M Type shown by Malcolm Eckton from whom I bought my Scott DSE - nice chap.

NHH
