Hard cases and their model trains


Sir, I write with reference to the letter in Construction News from Denis James (September 9).

He says that equipment trade shows are like model railway exhibitions for grown men.

I would point out that the majority of people at model railway exhibitions, whether exhibitors or spectators, are also grown men.

Many, like myself, come from within the construction industry, which is supposed to be populated only by hard cases.
