Not long to go!

Shellsea Harbour + about 14 other layouts layouts. Also Club's second-hand stand (well worth a browse usually, for that unusual "something"), Roy Hickman with scenic modelling demo, and not forgetting the Scale Rails International stand - come and meet the Editor.
Refreshments available.

You don't think that that might put people off?

As usual this show was a good day out, providing a wide range of models - not all of which could be photographed. The selection below were some of my favourites, but there were others - some in bright sun/deep shadow, making photography a problem; apologies to those whose work is not shown here. Pictures of Shellsea appear in the appropriate thread.

We start our tour of the show in pre-WW1 Bavaria. You've just got to love those baby beer wagons Very Happy


The local station with passenger arrival


Another German layout, this one set East of the Wall (and viewed through a proscenium arch formed of broken bricks) showed a station in the throes of a name-change.


Next a hop over the Alps to Italy. Normally TMDs aren't my thing, but this one was not the usual acres of grimy brick and fuel tanks, and had some unusual motive power on display.


Across the Atlantic to Mahwah. This N gauge layout has been around for some 20 years and is still a favourite of mine. Each half is about 38ins by 6 ins and is enclosed on three sides by the back-scene; the two stations are joined by a girder bridge. It is worked with a sequence table. Never say you have no room for a "proper" layout.



Finally back to the UK, and first to Thunders Hill - a Sussex essay in TT. This is the farm on the hill above the station.


Smaller still in scale, at least, was Polbream - a slice of Cornwall in N scale. Apologies for the blurry loco, but I liked the shot of the train with the sea-inlet and tiny jetty in the distance. The location is based on a real place where the line runs on a causeway, although as part of the model is not an accurate portrayal of the area, it has been given a fictional name. The track is Kato unit-track, but blended very effectively into the scenery.



Nearer London, is Roxeth - actually near Harrow. An imaginary Metropolitan Railway terminus in Metroland. OO scale.


Last but by no means least, Roy Hickman's scenic demo stand. "Oh, it really is a very pretty garden!"

and finally a view along the village street. Sorry about the distant Gulliver - my attempts to whitewash him out looked worse than with him present.
