3mm Society, Railway

Westfest 2019

Saturday saw a run down to Winterborne Earls, nr Salisbury to visit 3mm Westfest organised by local member Vic Freemantle.

Always a popular event and judging by the full car park pretty busy too.

The Society shop and Seconhand were their plying their trade along with 3smr and members with delights to offer, not forgetting Peter White with the Society finescale wheels.

Now not only were there goods to be had but also a number of layouts on display.

Peter Bossom – Watlington (Sussex)

Nick Salzman – Lananta has been entered into the Cameo layout competition due to be judge in May so good luck Nick!

South Downs & Solent Modular

Jerry Clifford of Bath Green Park fame was also there with one of his 2mm modules

As usual the food was excellent and went down well. Thanks go to Vic Freemantle for organising the day.

Well I have at last bagged a T9 and an Apple Green one to boot!

Went to the Weymouth model railway exhibition yesterday and they had one running on their O gauge Connaught Road layout

 

 
Whether or not the livery is authentic or not I’m not sure but it looks very smart.
