Saturday/Sunday 5/6 November – the Gravesend Show

EKOGG was again invited, and our members gave a good turnout to man the stand with Dave B, Chris M and John J on Saturday, and Paul W on Sunday. Fred and Roger attended on both days.

We had the pleasure of Geoff and his diorama alongside and he kindly covered when the rest of us wandered off.
Alongside the sales items we had one of the display stands with a variety of stock, different on the two days, brought along by the exhibitors; thank you, gentlemen.

As we had the NSE Society behind us, we managed to have an NSE–liveried loco each day.
It has to be said that were not a lot of visitors to the show on Saturday and even fewer on Sunday. It seemed to be a mix of weather and confusion on the (real) railways. Nonetheless, we took over £200 over the two days, albeit less than 10% of that was on the Sunday. We also managed to get rid of some stuff that we have been hawking around for years including a third of the books.
The show was the usual mix of OO gauge and N gauge layouts and regular traders. Other societies at the show included the British HO Society, the NSE Society, the 4-SUB Group and the Gravesend Model Engineering Society. And the catering was superb as usual!
