Unfortunately we only got a few minutes in each of them but there were some exquisite bridges:

Afterwards I ran straight off to meet Charlie and Margaret Getz for a self-guided layout tour. I did go back to Art’s but it was worth it!

We then went up to Cleveland’s millionaires’ row where there is a hobby shop in an amazing house. We got a tour of the house and I managed to buy something, of course.

Afterwards I went round the National Train Show as it was being set up. It is really interesting to see it being set up.

I grabbed a quick bite to eat before catching two excellent clinics – my first of the Convention.

They finished at 10:30 so back to the bar afterwards.
