Sorry to hear that you consider the show to be below power.
I have to follow Roberts lead, the show is in a new venue, very open and light with plenty of space to set the displays out. Not the cramped arrangement they had at Victoria Hall. I wish the Keighley Model Railway Club all the success for the future and support them going back there again (next year?). It was the first time and they learnt a lot about the what can work and what cannot.
As for people, it was busy both days and we had a lot of different visitors than the old establishment (i.e. railway interested). Families and Children were the main clientele, the hands on events for the children was their greatest asset, maybe not something the oldies see in a show like the young eyes do. The Dragon and the Fat Controller did Me!
I have to agree that there are many still out there that don't know about Train Siming or the potential that could be had with the game. Saying that, a model railway is possible a new form of interest also.
I wish Keighley Model Railway Club all the success and hope they hold the venue at this place again. But that is their decision, once they know the outcome of this exhibition. We have discussed with them some possible options on changing our approach and they will let us know if its viable.
As for Bristol, we have been invited back again to the Model Engineering Show in August (not April) and we will post something after Easter on the subject.
So watch this space.
