APA boxes have been used as layout baseboards for some time, and one was represented at the show. This is one end of it - representing a low level loco yard with a suburban terminus on high level arch ...

The narrow gauge exhibits included the Evalight Railway in 009. I went round before opening time, so no trains were running. I did, however, like this run of buildings on a hilly town street. What I f ...

Back from the Crawley show where the first day went well, but the Sunday was fraught with minor faults, including the loss of a coupler knuckle spring on the Port Authority loco. As a result one of th ...

Here's a small selection of pictures - just a couple of layouts, for now. Both Southern Region, but a world apart in subject matter and scale. There were no programmes, so I apologise for not being ab ...

A very good day at the Crawley show; photos will be posted elsewhere in this forum after the week-end.

Puerto Paseo has been going through its paces today (and tomorrow as well) at the Crawley show. Some very nice layouts in all scales and excellent trade stands. Must make a shopping list for Squires t ...
