"What? Not that old dinosaur again? I thought it was gone for good."
No. It's still around. The old dinosaur is making one more foray onto the exhibition circuit in the USA, and what a foray it will be.
It's going to be on display at the 38th National Narrow Gauge Convention in Minneapolis September 5th - 8th.

If you've forgotten what the layout looks like, then the nice people at the show have put up a page for it.

Some links to some blog reports about the National Narrow Gauge Convention, where Purespring Watercress was on show.

First Purespring https://smallmodelrailwaylayouts.blogsp ... f-era.html.

Then I met a hero http://thedrawerchallenge.blogspot.com/ ... our_9.html

Finally a report on the whole convention experience https://smallmodelrailwaylayouts.blogsp ... ntion.html

So Purespring Watercress is finally, officially retired. There is no more life in the old girl. "Its expired and gone to meet it's maker"
Someday though, it will return in some form.
