Aylsham was HOT HOT HOT

Just a quick debrief for our vast array of followers!!!

It's a pity Aylsham was a 1 day affair,, we really enjoyed ourselves.

With the forecasted temperatures I was expecting problems but NOTHING occured.

Certainly makes a change.

Will probably be some time before I do another exhibition in shorts and sandals,, not a pretty sight but very practical.

And on returning home I found out we had got ourselves on You Tube,, just put in Aylsham Model Railex and you will find us I'm sure.

It's a record,, 5 posts in 1 year and it's only October 1st

I had to do it,,, beat the all time record of the number of posts in a calendar year,,, and we've done it,, there is every chance we may hit double figures by the time Santa comes staggering along!!!

It's all a rooze really,, just to let you all know that the pastures is now safely esconsed in the back of a white Trannie van and we are all chomping at the bit for the autumnal bash at the Victory Hall Aylsham tomorrow Saturday 1st October 2011.

Unfortunately his handsomeness will not be with us on this occasion but we do have a computer wizard in our midst which should be handy as that means we can all pop out for a byte!!!

Look forward to meeting any Pastoral Bloggers,,,

Have a nice day,, a don't forget to pay the alimony!!!

Aylsham Norfolk Exhibition. 1st October 2011

Just a quick line to our many followers, well 4 to be precise.
Salmon Pastures will be at the Aylsham Norfolk Exhibition on Saturday the 1st October 2011.
It's a one day show, starts at 10.15am and closes at 4.30pm,, I think.
Worth a visit as the Bure Valley Railway have all sorts of festivities organised in their anniversary year!!
We are that close we could take the layout on a wheelbarrow,, but it has to be easier with a van.

Sorry it's so late of posting,, but we have been very busy,,,

Look forward to meeting any of our 4 followers!!!

Pre Nottingham Exhibition Run In

Crikey,, I'd forgotten how easy Blogging WAS,,, you've probably been waiting years for an update and now you get 2 on consecutive days,,,, anyway just to let you know that this afternoon myself and the chief test driver spent the complete afternoon chasing all manner of gremlins up the river in an attempt to get trouble free running at the Nottingham Bash next weekend.

We even turned the soldering iron on,,, and by the time we'd finished my bent riflers were red hot!!!!

GT was on form and only had the J50 into the turntable pit on one occasion,,,things really are looking up,,, mind you he was understandably distracted as Dolores was giving it "serious" vocals in the the background,,, Ably assisted by the inimitable Thomas Dorsey Esq.

With all these low flying J50 tanks we will probably need our very own air traffic controller next weekend!!!! Which is just as well as we've got one,,, assuming he's awake of course.

Nottingham Exhibition

On the vary rare chance that people may look at the Salmon Pastures Blog on a regular basis!!! T'is time for an announcement,,, as it's 2 years since we last trod the exhibition boards at Sheffield Model Railway Enthusiasts most enjoyable bash then

BE Warned

we are about to tread the boards again at the Nottingham Exhibition this coming weekend March 19th 20th 2011.

We have LOADS of new buildings to gawp at,,, several fresh engines to keep you entertained,,, and whilst the tram is still solar powered,,, and I am running out of excuses for not putting in the overhead catenary!!! The sandwich box control panel is no more,,, and we just hope the new one works!!!

If anybody does read this and it encourages them to come along to the Nottingham show then please make yourself known to the happy crew that will be trying their hardest to give the impression they know what they are doing,,, this time 2 weeks ago one was in the Falklands,, defending the empire,,, another was waiting for him to come home and defend her honour,, another was waxing lyrical about some 1930' s songstress called Dolores,,, and yours truly was adding more jobs to his tick list than crossing them off.

Such are the challenges of a bunch of wandering exhibition minstrels,,,

We will be having fun,,, just listen.

Please make yourself known and win a prize,,, I really do hope you like Polo's,,,the mint that is.
