Hi Jim, yep final plan assuming no disasters.

Not sure there's much we need other than a couple of electric sockets?

Is anyone going up to Weston on Saturday from the London area?

Coming back the same day, or perhaps on Sunday?

As one of the Black Diamonds participants on our HO layout, I'd like to thank the organisers for a great week end - lots to see and lots to do plus a number of bargains bought as well. What could be better? I'm looking forward to next year's meet already!

I will be uploading photos to my Flickr site late Monday or sometime Tuesday

Can I also say a big WELL DONE to everyone who organised the Meet and the meal at the Chinese. Good company, good food and talk of trains (most of the time) what more could you ask for?
