Orpington & District Model Railway show

The O&DMRS held their annual show at Pratts Bottom this weekend so  a visit with the good Mr. P was called for.

Although a small show always worth a visit for the quality of layouts and a bonus this year in that they had a 3mm one BallyConnel Road

There was also a rather nice OO layout Trezeath representing a N Cornwall might have been (note first bus on bridge spotted this year Mr P!)

There were 2 EM gauge layouts the first being Admiralty Exchange Sidings located in the Medway area of Kent

  The second EM layout Harpur Hill quarry featured a limestone quarry near Buxton, Derbyshire 
O Gauge was represented by Halfway a narrow gauge forestry line

Not to be left out N was ably demonstrated by Newton Craig set in the lowlands of Scotland (does a coach on a bridge count?).

I am not a lover of Continental layouts so there is just one photo taken from afar of Adlerplatz an HO German layout

All in all a nice little show.

    Very enjoyable show.
    I suppose the bulk well more than 1 sheep carrier doesn’t count as a bus
