    @Mrs Snap

    Evening meal on the Saturday sounds just like the thing for meeting people and discussing plans for the following days, so I'm definitely up for that. Breakfasts and lunches I'll sort out for myself, while eating out in the evenings has that attractive ring to it. ;)

    It's like an electric carrier pigeon but no good for a stew.

    Well I see no reason to change from carrier pigeon for either messages or stew. :D

    Does anybody fancy doing the Glenfinnan Viaduct on the Sunday?

    The timetable suggest only the morning train runs after today, so that would be your starting point if you want the train on the viaduct. It doesn't mention Sundays, so presumably it runs on that day as well. https://www.westcoastrailways.co.uk/m/jacobite/dates-times.cfm

    Edit: Obviously it comes back again in the afternoon on its return journey, but I think the usual (best?) shot is of it heading outwards?

    Scrap that, it looks like the Sunday service stops at the end of September but Monday to Friday service runs while we're there.

    As Sue doesn't eat veg (apart from chips and baked beans (Heinz) stew probably wouldn't suit us. We're coming up early - meaning a couple of days before - with the idea of being able to get to West Yorkshire Cameras before we've wasted all the holiday money on non-essentials like food... Anyway, as we won't be making too long a journey on the Saturday, we'll probably have eaten before we arrive. Though depending on what we had, I might manage some stew. Otherwise, food sounds fine.

    While we're talking of food and kitchens, is it normal to develop films on site? I was considering bringing a developing tank for sheet film, partly in case anyone wanted to try LF and avoid the issue of having to store exposed film. I'll have a changing tent with me in any case. I know it will also involve a few chemicals, bottles, a thermometer and clips.

    It has been done before Stephen, I recall at Whipsnade a few years back and I guess possibly elsewhere since then.
    iirc the objects required, chems, scanner, laptop, dev tan etc etc were brought by different people so as to not put the "load" onto one person.

    I was going to put my tanks and chemicals in on the off-chance that I wanted to process anything.

    At the bootie a few weeks ago a guy had a sorta large box (maybe folding cardboard one) but not home made, with hand holes with felt (to prevent light entering)....I thought at the time someone here would have wanted it...didn't bother to ask the price, silly really as it would have been a guide for what things like this go for.

    I'll probably bring *two - and I only have one pair of arms to stick in 'em.... You're welcome to use one of them.

    * Harrison Pup and the bigger Harrison - usable as a darkroom if you're small enough :D
