During the exhibition, I was very pleased to meet Simon HARRIS. It was a pleasure and an honor for me that he runs his loco and rolling stocks on my layout. He gave me also the excellent idea of the chain shunting, brilliant ! I was also impressed by his battery loco, a system that I ignore all because I'm in DCC.

I had the pleasure to meet also Stephan, Peter and 3 - 4 others 7/8 th scale modellers (I hope the will forgave me to not be able to site them).

I'm already invite for 3 others exhibitions in UK so I hope it will be another occasion to meet others 7/8th scale modellers.

Articles will be written in British railway modelling and in narrow gauge industrial railway modelling review on the Woolacombe Bay so I hope it will contribute a little to the development of this fantastic scale.


Few photos of the layout during the exhibition with loco and rolling stock from Simon Harris

The flat depressed car is a marvellous







Me with Simon Harris

Great photos, Franck. I'd no idea the trains were that large. My spare well wagon may perhaps get a similar treatment, but in On30.

Do let us all know when and where you will be appearing at shows in the UK. ExpoNG at Swanley, possibly???

I will do the exhibition in october at Sedan (France) , then in november at Rail Expo (near Paris). I will exhibit also at The London festival of Railway Modelling in 22 March 2014 - 23 March 2014. I will come with a lister and a ruston that are nearly ready.

It will be another occasion to meet others 7/8 modellers.

I get 2 new recruits to Woolacombe Bay : Bob and Doug Mckenzie, the cousins of Canada of the owner of the railroad !






I choose them because they are very expressive, a little simple-minded and a bit drunky.



I would like to have your opinion : Do you pefer Bob and Doug or th fisherman figure ? Thanks for your reply.

Actually I like them all; the "new boys" are very expressive. as you say.

I do have a couple of thoughts about them, however. Doug's hat seems a little small for him, and its pointy top make him look like a bit like a garden gnome to British eyes. He might perhaps look better bare-headed.............?

The fisherman character's pose is a bit rigid; might it be possible to relax one arm to rest the hand on his leg and have the other on the controls?

Hope you don't think I'm being picky, but a little extra work on the figures and they would be 100%. You've set such a high standard with the locomotives (I love the way the bare metal is coming through the paintwork on Doug's loco) that the figures need to match this level.

The woolacombe bay at Alexandra Palace.



It was my first show in this place. The organization was quite good. There was many interesting layout including a marvellous us one at fn3 scale, manies excellent ideas for inspiration and copy !

I enjoyed also to met for the second time the dream team of brm : Andy, Howard Richard and Phill.

I do also shopping but for our scale nearly nothing exist (It's mainly a show for oo and o gauge)

I just finished the loco. The photos are too exposed but it's my fault.

Here the result :
