No connection to the Waveney Valley Model Railway Club but a delightful exhibition in a wonderful setting. I missed last years exhibition but I enjoyed the previous years visit.

St Felix school is sufficiently far out from Southwold to avoid the inevitable holiday traffic.

Why, when I click on the link supplied, do I get the WVMRC Exhibition page then?


Confused of Market Harborough

Because Waverney Valley club organise it but the original poster isn't a member of that club?

Usually a decent show, though difficult to get to from Mkt Harborough

(Edited to make it clear I don't live in Market Harborough just in case anyone thought I do)

Couldn't make it due to finances, we couldn't ask for more expenses just because I moved so I had to stand down, but as it's on a different weekend it doesn't matter anyway !

I could also buy Dave a pint of Adnams or three........

Cheers, Pete.

Sorry, didn't notice the date, another senior moment. I am sure you will be sadly missed at Perth, WVY will not be the same without you out front. I am suprised that all the Wirral Guys have the energy to operate at Perth after Wigan last weekend. All your efforts where very much appreciated. Enjoy yourself at Southwold, I am sure if the show has your recommendation it will be well worth the visit.

This is always a pleasent show in a nice neck of the woods, especially due to the promitiy of the Adnams brewery and their excellent shop in town. Like the last few years I shall be there assisting Mike Wild and Hornby Mag crew, I think we are exhibiting the N Gauge layout Hettle this year.

People have been wondering what might be happening with the Impetus kits for about a decade, so I doubt anything will. Karlgarin seems largely to have moved away from 4mm

Nearly always a great exhibition. Normally a sunday morning visit and then brilliant fish and chips down at the harbour.

Just a quick bump with under a week to go - Due to unforeseen circumstances, Potterbourne will now be attending as a last minute stand in.

Do come along and say hello, and perhaps have a go if your there next weekend :good:

As planned I managed to visit the Southwold Model Railway Exhibition which is presented by the Waveney Valley Model Railway Club with the exhibition now in its 24th year.

Here are a few snaps of some of the layouts being presented and the show continues on Sunday if you wish to pay a visit.

Enjoyed visiting today. It was good to see the gauge 1 layout back this year. Enjoyed watching Warren Lane - an inspirational layout and one which appeared to draw plenty of attention

Good to catch up with Graham_muz for our annual chat

Went today and what an excellent exhibition it was, some really fantastic layouts.
Great to see the Gauge 1 back this year, I love the smell of meths in the morning!

Had a nice chat with Josh and Westerner who were operating Potterbourne.

Treated myself to a new Land Rover & a Stove R!
