The 2019 Exhibition – Best in show

Our 2019 exhibition went very well and thank you to all those who attended.  We had 22 great layouts in attendance this year but as always there can only be one ‘Best in Show’ as voted for by the public.  This year the prize went to ‘Brixham Bay’ built by Judith & Kevin Cartwrite.

The Upcoming Show – Layout Changes

We are now a month away from this years show and things are just about sorted.

As sometimes happens with shows due to unforeseen circumstances layouts have to drop out and sadly Pottendorf, the German HO layout, will not be coming this year but the good news is Llaniog Town, a lovely Welsh N Gauge layout, will be. And there is the possibility of fitting in one more layout, hopefully we will have an update on what that will be soon.

In the mean time its back to the preparations for Sunday the 4th Of November.
