After some last minute panics with the points & Signalling electrics we took the layout to its first show where all ran well. There is still plenty to do to finish the layout as there are still some elements to add (Yard crane & loading gauge, for example) and more work is required on some scenic elements. Overall though, we were pleased with the performance and learned a few things to be implemented for its next outing.
