every year and this could be one the reasons for the non showing of our display.
I can agree that the car parking charges at Brighton are eye watering and leave one a bit weak at the knees
As well as the cost, it does take a lot of time and effort to organise attendance at an event like this and there will come a point when the effort is just not worth it, and I guess that point has been reached by the UKTS team.
This does give me an idea however for next year. I see that The Spa Valley Railway and the Lavender Line both have stands at the show and for my own enjoyment I might be able to team up with one or both of them to demonstrate my versions of their Railways at the show. The Bluebell Railway also exhibit so there seems to be an opportunity there as well.
Something for me to think about
