Exhibiting Wimblehurst Road at the Pevensey Exhibition on Saturday.
Yesterday evening, 13th July, saw the annual members day event with a dedicated special train purely for members and shareholders of the 35006 Society. It was a chance to ride behind 35006 Peninsular & Oriental S. N. Co on a private train after No.6 had been in service on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Steam Railway during the…

The August issue No. 146 of Hornby Magazine published last week includes my step by guide on how to simply create concrete inset track exactly as I used on Canute Road Quay. This follows Canute Road Quay featuring earlier this year in the April 2019 Issue, whilst within the main layout article I briefly described…

Myself and Mr P paid a visit to the Hayward’s Heath Show held at the Dolphin Leisure Centre. Apart from the parking which was horrendous (found that Mr P is very good at reversing his car down a long road!) the show held in 2 halls was pretty good.
A variety of scales (alas no 3mm) some decent layouts were on show. We also met a few Society members both 3mm and O.16.5 so had a good chinwag too.
Unlike a lot of exhibitions these days a decent guide was provided too.
Here are the photos
Well Creek Basin -7mm
Hobbs Hill -4mm OO
Frimley North -4mm OO
Haynes Lane -7mm O
Dorchester Jct -4mm FS
Banbury (Oxfordshire) -N
Arnold Lane -7mm O
Chelwood Exchange -4mm OO
Dougdale -4mm OO
Hope Hill -7mm O
Ashenden Jct -N
Staindrop -7mm O
These were the pick of the bunch for me. Very enjoyable show apart from the parking.
Excuse the title, but popped into Medstead and Four Marks on the way home to see the arrival of the last train of the day.
Due to the Butts bridge works outside Alton till July all trains are terminating at Medstead.
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.
Mike Corps Heybridge Wharf
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.
