I recently had the pleasure of a small display and sales stand at the Fareham & district Model Railway show.
It was a very impressive display from the grand selection of layouts and i was very taken by the high standard of the modelling and running.
For the first time this year i sponsored a shield for the best modelling part of a layout and this was co-judged by both myself and a representative of the show (said to protect the guilty ;-)), and we jointly decided that the OO modern image layout ‘Croydon North Street’ was the winner.
I also helped out and sponsored the show bus service that shuttled members of the public from Fareham Railway Station to the Sports Centre and back.
A lovely bus, in great condition, and i look forward to doing the same again next year.
As for the show, well i know i would say this but it truly is an exceptional show with a great atmosphere organised and put on by some really nice guys and girls, and well worth the visit.
Maybe i’ll see you there next year?
