Clinton Valley - Dave Greenwood

At exhibitions, people come to me on my "Show You How" stand and say "I would like layout but do not have enough room".  

So, this is a minimum space layout on an ironong board from my local tip - it is just a 3 ft 8 inches long by 13 and a half inches wide.  

It's Christmas Eve 1899 and it's been snowing heavily.   The Clinton Valley Railway is having to fight to keep going as people throng into town for the festivities. It is one big party with the market, bioscope (travelling cinema), round stalls, Punch and Judy, a dancing bear and a gypsy fortune teller. There is Lady Jane Bower getting her ball gown ready and Miss Jones posting a letter to a boyfriend who is fighting the Boers in South Africa.
