Episode 1 1) US : CHUPACABRAS (DUR: 6'46) Since it was first sighted on Puerto Rico in the mid 90's, the Chupacabras, or goatsucker, has become one of the greatest puzzles of the paranormal.

Here is my footage of the Model Railway Exhibition which was held on the 17th and the 18th of October 2009 at the East Of England Showground in Peterborough, United Kingdom. The video was taken on the 17 of October 2009 and this video has been split into three parts because of the 10 minute restriction on YouTube. All stills in this video have no sound and I have chosen NOT to include background music for legal and copyright reasons, but all video footage does have its original sound though. This video starts off with some stills of several new Hornby releases at their Hornby Stand which was located just inside the second hall. These incude the new EWS Management train which will feature the new MkIII DVT Model (although it is originally classed as a "DLV" which means "Driving Luggage Van" and not a DVT (Driving Van Trailer). Also there was the MkIII DLV in Virgin Trains livery and this model is numbered 82150 which will be available to buy as a stand alone model from December this year. Also in new releases there was the new Hornby Class 395 "Javelin" Model and two new Pullman VSOE carriages as well as some more DCC sound fitted models to expand the Hornby DCC Sound range like the Class 31, Class 50 and the 9F which sound quite impressive. The layouts shown here in this part of the video are Bishop Wearburn which is a classic steam based layout, Holland Park Intermodal Container Terminal.

Taken at this years Shire Horse Society show at the East of England showground. I think I may need to invest in an actual video camera (these were shot and edited on my Cybershot phone) - I kept running out of memory, as you can see when it stops half-way through the display by Waldburg Shires! D'oh.
