Well, the dust has settled and we are now planning for our 2018 show. Before we get too involved, it seems pertinent to show some photographs of this year's show which were taken by David Hennessey, a leading transport and model railway photographer in the north west. David has given his approval to display the following photographs and we are indebted to him for this.

Has anyone seen the Imperial Stormtrooper? He was seen around the exhibition hall and was the STAR of the show with many people both young and old having their photographs taken with him.

Each year we award a "Best in Show" achievement plaque to a layout which has been judged by all of the layout exhibitors at the show. I am delighted to announce that the winner for 2016 was Lydstone by Peter Roberts and Margaret Rotheram.
