Thakeham at Amberley

I spent this weekend at Amberley, with Thakeham Tiles at the model railway exhibition held as part of the railway gala weekend.

The exhibition is a nice little show, with a reasonable selection of (mostly small) NG layouts spread around various buildings. It was nice to see some developments at Richard Glover's Sand Point.

However the models play a supporting role to the real narrow gauge trains. There are steam locos, resident and visiting...

A wide range of industrial NG locos and trains...

Which all line up for a parade mid afternoon...

Not forgetting of course, the pleasure of rides behind a steam loco!

The weather defied the pessimistic forecast and the sun shone. It was also good to catch up with old friends, so a good weekend all round. You can see a full set of photos here, and read more about the Amberley narrow gauge museum on their website.
