Yamanouchi Oshika at Rotarail 2014

What is almost certain to be Y-O’s last public display, went off pretty well at Rotarail 2014. Minor electrical problems kept us on our toes, but the visitors – particularly one young boy,were captivated by the layout.

It could have been a sad occasion but it was an enjoyable  day at a well organised, friendly show.

For the writer it was good to have long chats with old colleagues from Fareham and South Hants clubs who were also exhibiting at the show.

The following picture- featured on the N Gauge Forum, was taken by Neal Mansell – whom we thank for permission to use on this site
