The view from inside Visions Hut. A nervous northerner approaches to ask if he can be a judge for the Clagging Cup.
33019 arrives from Shenton, 33201 & 021 wait to work the next train.
The Rat steams quietly before working the next train. Fame is only eight hours away.
The Clagging headboard also works backwards.
Four basic human needs: Right to left - texting, eating, trying to remain upright and supervising.
Mrs Carr looks horrified as her co-judge is revealed, although we thought Simon Buxton did quite a good job.
Our cup claggeth over.
Diane the 02 arrives to work the shunter shuttles.
A surprise contestant gate-crashes the competition. Faster than your average zimmer frame.
The selection short-list for judges for the 2011 Clagging Cup (if Steve the Sink can't make it).
The compere stupidly mentions Birmingham again (you had to be there).
The Rat's owners study a schematic to try and figure out where the coal goes in.
The 25 prepares for its run, complete with its own safety fencing.
The winning owner - Mr Martin Sargent from the Mr Martin Sargent Group.
The Clagging Cup catches on with the paparazzi.
The winning owner hears the good news - his twelve-month tenure of the Clagging Cup culminates in the ritual scrapping of his loco.
The 08 makes its Cup run. Enhanced or not enhanced? No-one can say with certainty.
The special needs children clear up the mess on the morning after.
The practice run for the Romanian national anthem (audience singing abysmal as usual).
33201 gets a wash & brush-up before working from Portsmouth to Cardiff (one for the headcode geeks there).
A shunter-shuttler takes sensible precautions.
The shuttles disappear into their own fundament.
Clagging Cup Feedback
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the effort you obviously put into organising the clagging cup - it was brilliant! My brother and I came up from Wells and Cardiff respectively for the event, and it was well worth the journey. I found it genuinely funny (especially the 5'' gauge Western!) and the thrash was good too! The 'drowning cow' sound effects at the half time interval were inspired genius!
I attended last year's clagging cup as well, and I thought this year was even better. Please do it again next year if you can - I for one will certainly be there!
Superb, a really enjoyable event , its good to see somebody brave enough to do something different.
I thought the whole event had been very smoothly put together and the ‘Rat’ was the deserved winner!
The 'Carry on Clagging Cup' should be made to be a national sporting event!
