Atlantic Report No11: Midlands Show 2015...

Hi all. Just a brief one from this afternoon. Under dark skies threatening rain, we batted along the Fosseway headed for the setup evening of the 2015 Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition. My 3.5" gauge LBSC Maisie Atlantic: modelled on Ivatt's popular C1 type: had been invited to take part in the show once again, atop the colourful stand put on by Coventry MES. The engine had been cleaned and polished within an inch of her life but looked the business as she was displayed alongside Ed's 2P type Midland 4-4-0. The engine will now be on display until Sunday and I'm sure she'll spend many happy hours people watching as no doubt hundreds and hundreds of anorak clad show goers pass her by. Cheers everyone, all the best, Sam...
