Day 10 – Transformers!

I was lucky enough to be on the club floor and get breakfast. I love make your own waffles:


I know I’m at a train convention and I did get over there three times today to talk to people, pop in and see what Modelling with the Masters is up to and mooch around a bit.

The National Train Show hall looks a bit empty:

However, I also managed to persuade Joel Priest to go and see Transformers 4 with me. I loved it but then I do have a lot of transformers models…


From the mall outside the cinema, you get an excellent view of a canal. It’s amazing the size of boats going up it:

Cleveland has some excellent modelling inspiration with the roads above the trains:

I also went on the dinner cruise along the lake shore and up a river. It was really interesting and I met some new people including one lady who is the modeller in the family.
