Arundel model railway show

Posted by Picasa
Last weekend we had a family trip to Arundel to see the model railway show put on by the Wealden Railway Group. You can see more pictures here. My 15-month old son was having great fun toddling about so apologies of the photo's aren't great but I was trying to stop him destroying people's hard work! Still, he loved the trains. 009 was represented by a couple of excellent micro-layouts (one is pictured above), andthere were several nice layouts in other scales, although a couple had turned up late and were setting up as I left.
My layout is progressing with the station building now complete awaiting painting. I have made a start on the Metcalf Models mill/warehouse card kit that will form the factory. It is a nice kit but it is a long time since I built a card kit, and I'm concerned that the detail and finish (such as the corners of the walls) may not be as good as I'd like. Still they will go together quickly and will only need minimal painting, which given I have spent 2 months on the station building is important if I want to finish the layout anytime soon!
