This week’s post will be a short one and as promised in last week’s post I’ll be sharing with you some of the shows coming up which I’ll be attending.
The first show is the Andover Model Railway Exibition on the 3rd & 4th of September. I’ll be there with my club’s layout ‘Solent Summit’ all weekend.
The next show is the Swindon Railway Festival on 10th and 11th of September. Although I won’t be attending with one of my clubs layouts I will be there on the Sunday with ‘Horfield’. This very large OO Scale model of the GWR four track main line through Horfield station is as realistic as they come and recreates 1955 to 1961. A lot of the rolling stock was scratch built to ensure the correct trains are passing through.
The next show is Fareham Railex on 1st and 2nd of October and this year my club will be demonstrating how to build and assemble scenic modules for club layouts.
The 28th to the 30th of October is the NMRA(BR) convention in Meriden and we will have a few of the ‘Solent Summit’ modules on display as a switching layout.
The 6th of November is the Poole And Districts Model Railway Society’s annual exhibition and my group will be taking ‘Solent Summit’ there as well.
The 10th and 11th of November is the Hampton Court Model Railway Societies Tolworth Show and again ‘Solent Summit’ will be there.
That’s it for my current layout commitments for the next few months. If you’re planning to go to any of these please come and say hello.
