Preparing Thakeham for Lancing

Just a few days to go until the Sussex Downs 009 group show at Lancing. Since most layouts there are 009, HOe or similar, though there is an O-16.5 layout, we thought we'd increase the range of NG scale/gauge combinations if I brought Thakeham. Plus, it has local interest. So this week it has been retrieved from the loft and checked over, just a little loco servicing to get attention and it will be packed up ready for Saturday.

There will be lots of excellent layouts as well!  Full details of the exhibition are in the last post, so hope to see you there.

Sussex Downs 009 Group Show - 2 Weeks To Go!

Just two weeks to go until the Sussex Downs 009 Group's exhibition...

2017 members day 009

So if you can join us on the 18th, at the Parish Hall in Lancing, West Sussex, we'd love to see you. You'll find an excellent selection of narrow gauge layouts, especially in 009 of course, plus the 009 society sales stand and a select bunch of traders. A list of exhibitors can be found on the club website.

I'm looking forward to seeing Ted Polet's Creag Dhubh Summit again, all the way from Holland.

Chris O'Donoghue's Compass Point is well worth seeing.

Plus several others, some new to the exhibition circuit, others rarely seen. I'll even be bringing one of my own layouts - Thakeham Tiles.
