If it's worth doing once, we can get away with doing it again. This time the 'it' was Rails at Burscough Year Two, organised by Tony to publicise the Merseyside area group of the Tramway and Light Railway Society, and I suspect to minimise withdrawal symptoms from having to wait until September to hold the next SMRS exhibition.
As before it operated smoothly with no significant problems, the public came in sufficient numbers to ensure financial viability, and the heritage bus service was an added attraction. No less than three SMRS members exhibited layouts, Derek's Walmer Bridge, Terry's Circle Line and Mike's Layout With No Name (now Layout With A Name after the name-this-layout competition).
Some photos of Walmer Bridge are here. Somehow I didn't have time to photograph anything else.
