Hi Andrew, I will be popping over as usual to see you at this show, would you be willing to explain to me how to get started with TS as I've given up
the thought of buying a laptop but my main computer which is dual partitioned with XP for MSTS and Win7 which at present not used much except for
surfing the net could be used for the later Simulator.
I would be willing to spend a little money to get an upgraded power supply and suitable Graphics Card later on and then get TS2016 and once I get used
to it, buy a couple of routes to do the run from York to Edinburgh as I've already down the run from Kings-Cross to York in MSTS.

Cheers
Bob

Hi Peter, just got back from the show and met up with Andrew and his father Brian, I passed on the message that you would like some photo's and I saw
him taking a few of his display so no doubt he will post them on here.
I had an informative talk with Andrew about using TS2016 and how much different it is to MSTS and so probably next year I will get my computer altered
with a new Power Supply and Graphics Card so that I can have a go at a few Routes for that Simulator.
The show was pretty good with layouts of all gauges and many book sellers and a few demonstrations of Model Builders for anybody wishing to know how
to build items for their layout.

Cheers
Bob

Thanks Bob for the review of the show.

Over the 11 years UKTS Live was on the road, we quite often found that the small to medium shows had a much greater variety over the whole show than the large shows.
Warley is a brilliant show BUT..... it gets very samey seeing similar models over a large floor area.

Thank you also to Andrew for doing his bit at the show for Train Simulation.
