Skip4The first show of 2019 beckons for North Ballachulish this weekend at Preston.

It also marks the great unveiling – the plain sky blue backscene has now gone. Whilst the layout has been stored in the garage at home since Manchester show, the back boards took a little trip to South Manchester, where the superb artistic work of Mike Raithby took place. To say I’m pleased with the result is the understatement of the year, they really have caught the atmosphere of the West Highlands brilliantly.  It was tempting to display the finished result  on here first but I really want to see it actually on the layout before I do any photographs of it. In the meantime here they are in their protective “Stiffy Bags” ready to load onto the van tomorrow.
