  • Recent Event Reviews

    • Guildford 'O' Gauge Group open day
      By paftrain,
         For some unknown reason it has appeared on the wrong day! It should read 7th April NOT 9th. Could mods please correct this?
    • The 6th Chris Kedgeley Memorial Skills Day
      By NorthHighlander,
         An excellent day. I was invited late to attend as a demonstrator and I didn’t get much chance to look around which is a very positive thing. I took along one board from Tregaron Upper plus the fiddle yard. The TU board is 41 years old and at the end of the day I ran the first loco on it EVER! Thanks to Jim’s Summers, Mackenzie and Pairman and Richard Chown for helping me. Got home at midnight 50 and crashed out on Sunday!
    • Model Rail Scotland 2019
      By cessfordalan,
         I cannot comment on the Glasgow show as I do not fly to Glasgow until Thursday morning, but If it is anything like the last one it should be great. Living as I do, through choice;is  in the Western Isles it is also a chance to mingle with a friendly like minded crowd and do some serious modelling shopping as the nearest model shop is a two and a half hour ferry crossing plus a sixty mile coach journey in each direction, so a fabulous weekend is planned

    • Monmouth Model Railway show
      By Phil Bullock,
         A very friendly show - usually try to get to this one. Some excellent layouts and wider modelling interest too - a couple of local traders to support and an excellent book sale stall at which I picked up a couple of gems. All in all well worth a few hours on a Sunday

    • Gauge O guild Spring Show Kettering
      By tanatvalley,
         Always an excellent show for O gauge modellers and those thinking of trying O gauge.
