At the risk of hijacking Merlin's excellent idea for a thread, What's on August Bank Holiday Weekend, and as we are in the middle of the season, is there any mileage in this thread which could give details of smaller events that do not usually get any publicity.

Drove up there this afternoon, nice little display, not too much in the way of steam but plenty of stationary engines, classic cars, bikes, and an Allegro (!!), loads of different tat to look at but managed to resist buying anything.

Good people to talk to and a well worthy cause to support.

We had a great day out at Barry Island on Saturday.

The new 2.5" ground level track was opened on Saturday morning by a local Barry Councilor and a plaque was unveiled by the family of the late Harold Denyer (who will be known to many older modellers). Harold was a G3 Member and left his G3 track to the Society. This was used to create the new Barry Island track. Passengers arriving by Arriva Trains were entertained by Society members enjoying a GTG there afterwards. Room has been left for a 45mm inside track which the G Scale society plan to lay alongside in the future.

There is a short video of a G3 Brittania having a test run on Friday before the official opening there. The long straight is about 90ft long and enables engines to be 'opened up'.

Hi John, I have been on the IOW railway. It's one of the best in the country, just a bit short.

We were there in October School hols and there were great activities going on for the kids.

We had most of the day there.
