Well that’s the 2017 Uckfield show done and dusted, and Six Quarters is now established on the exhibition circuit, having made its debut over the weekend.
Overall, things went miles better than we had expected them too, the layout not only worked, which according to Oly was a minor miracle, but actually worked bloody well, and was generally very well received by the visiting public and other exhibitors! Even the mayor seemed to like it…
Aside from a few minor things for us to sort out, the only real improvements we have taken away from the show as being required are some more locos for a bit of extra variety. So it can’t be all bad. Oly is even going to sleep tonight for the first time in 4 months now he’s not worrying constantly.
We just wanted to say a massive thanks to Adrian for organising another excellent show, to all the other exhibitors and to the public for all the kind comments and great feedback over the show, and finally to all of Uckfield club for being great hosts over the weekend, it’s always nice to visit a show where the club go out their way to make it obvious they appreciate you attending and that you shouldn’t be greatful for the invite.
Here are a few photos to remember a weekend mainly dominated by dirty bleakness and rusty coal wagons.
