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.

And here the boys are from Croydon North street, receiving the shield from yours truly.

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?
