I enjoyed my day at this exhibition very much indeed it was a very good show with a variety of exhibits run in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
It is a fabulous venue in a charming Cotswold town. The show was very well attended by a record crowd, despite the glorious weather outside.
I took some photographs of a couple of the narrow gauge layouts which you might like to see.

The view looking out of the window from the operating side of my layout at about 9 30 am, all this and cream cakes to die for!

Peter-

Thanks for the pictures- I can see that it was a glorious day.

Is the overhead functional on Paul's layout?

With regard to the working power lines Herb I am afraid I don't know if they work or not. Most of the locomotives I saw were either steam or diesel.
The layout at the show consisted of two 4 x 2 foot sections which are part of a modular system which in its entirety is 56 feet long. All the modules are owned by members of the OTT subdivision of the Slim Gauge Circle (a national club for those interested in American Narrow Gauge.)

Sorry I can't be more helpful, I just loved all the little scenes and the superb standard of modelling.
