It's the big one!  With 6000 visitors and 170 traders, this is by far the biggest wargames event in the UK and certainly one to get to if you can! 

All of the info on the show can be found on the Warlords website: http://www.salute.co.uk/salute/salute-2017/ and we'll need your pre-orders sending through to us by Sat 15th please.  Don't leave it too late with this one, as we'll be run off our feet in the run up to the day.

Train. You remember? When you helped that nice Mr Stephenson with his "Rocket". If I recall, you were the one who surveyed for the first ever railway line: Stockton to Leeds. But of course, you turned left instead of right.

Then there was the time that you were working as the railway speed control operative in Russia, leading that train, warning all and sundry it was coming by waving that big red flag. That was about 1917 wasn't it?

Then you were the driver of the Flying Scotsman, made the trip from St Pancras to Launceston in no time flat. Surprised everybody who was expecting to go to Edinbugh.


As for "cheap train tickets", they're mythical, like dragonmen, centaurs and Aztecs.

Thought that cheap train tickets existed like jam - yesterday and tomorrow !!

Phil has a problem with the concept of trains - they don't exist in his bit of Wales.

There's 'a station' in the local village.....about a mile and a half away......

But I don't think it's been open since Dr Beeching made his cuts......Blimey  Shocked....that's over 50 years ago, isn't it ?

Think the nearest station to me now is just over 10 miles away.

No passenger trains north of Auckland, or buses, or motorways... Cry

Dreaming of London's great transport network...

The East Coast Main Line (Virgin) sometimes have cheap tickets if you buy then about 12 weeks in advance. Last years Salute I managed to get tickets from Darlington to London Kings Cross and back for 16.50 each way.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

A Senior Railcard and the option to upgrade to First Class for a couple of quid each way made my recent rail trip very affordable.

I find myself wondering if I could do Salute this year by getting a train at silly o'clock, arriving in London in time for the start of the show and leaving in the evening ... and then probably sleeping through the next day Smiley

As they say you don't appreciate something till it's not there. I have to say I have no dreams of London's transport system, but fortunately not too many nightmares about it these days   Wink
