I had the honour and privilege of being asked to help out at Croydon MRS exhibition at Warlingham school last weekend. A very enjoyable weekend and say it quietly but I was helping out on a 016.5 layout Bodgit & Much Pottering owned by that nice Mr. Cameron (no not the prime minister, but him of St.Reatham fame). The layout ran like a dream c/w sequence timetable so could not go far wrong really.
Here are some photos
I am sure you will agree some very nice modelling. It was amazing the number of people who commented on the trees which are made from real wood. Brian says he prefers real wood as it gives a more realistic affect.
So what layouts were there?
First off we have West Croydon which won best layout in show
Then a little further down the line we have Waddon by Wimbledon MRC
And N gauge on an ironing board
And then the big stuff – Eatonswell O gauge Great Eastern
This was its last show as the layout was up for sale, a bargain at £750(if only!) no stock or trestles.
There was also a lovely Cambrian layout the name of which escapes me (Mr. P?)
Finally some 3mm – Lyndhurst
And a bit of 009 by Ian Kirkwood
All in some good layouts and sorry to those I missed. But just to show for exhibition managers you do get to play sometimes
Well done Mr.P
