Jon, at the rate things are going there might be no Model Shows this year including the Peterborough Show in November. I hope I’m wrong.Let us pray that it will not be too long before you and the GC are back up and running though I feel that this years Model Railway event will be lost.
It will all depend on the next few weeks.. If too many think it is all over, then the numbers will go up, and we will be back indoors until Christmas. - That is those who do not need to stay isolated.Hope we are all wrong about Shows, but I think there is a real possibility of no more this tear. Yes let us hope we are wrong.
Just got a text from my mate in Crete who visited UK the week before shut down. He reckons the problem has been handled very badly In the UK, I could of course not possibly comment. On the plus side for him all the Bars are back open!I do think 'we' will be able to get back to doing some 'stuff' though..
I predict we might be able to go back to railways (as volunteers) to do some maintenance / remedial works?? - The entry of the Public, and how to run railways, within 'social-distancing guidelines' may be a step too far.
I doubt we will be able to stay, so it will be 'day-trips' to do what we can to support our causes..
(All without batteries in the crystal-ball, of course).
You're absolutely right, Greg, but the UK media studiously avoids such meaningful comparisons.I try to look at the statistics per 100k people... that allows apples to apples. In the US some less populous states figured they would not have to be careful, it just took longer for them to have it spread and their death rate is double the other states... and at one point New York city was 10 times the rate where I live in California...
