Arundel Show

I got to the Wealden Railway Group's little exhibition in Arundel today, with both kids and (grand)parents in tow. I say little as it is in a small scout hut, but as the group concentrate on small layouts, they squeezed 11 layouts in, plus demo and static displays. It's always a friendly and welcoming show too, with a free cup of tea/coffee included in the entry price.

Svanda is a Norwegien (or was it Swedish?) HO layout by Nigel Hill and Chris Ford. Rural charm up to their usual excellent standard.

This was an excellent example of a shunting layout in OO - small, well scenic'd, and interesting to operate. I can't remember the name though!

What if the Isle of Wight had narrow gauge railways and happened to be located in the Caribbean? That was the concept behind Puerto Paseo.

Another EXPO challenge relic - this time a Pizza depiction of a French tramway by Simon Hargreaves.

For a fuller set of pictures click here - though I haven't yet downloaded the many pictures the kids took on their cameras. If you like blurry, over-exposed and indecipherable images let me know.
