7mm, Railway, Terriers A1 & A1x

Hayward’s Heath MRE

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

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.
