      35th UCKFIELD MODEL RAILWAY EXHIBITION
       

       
      Organised by the Uckfield Model Railway Club.

      UCKFIELD CIVIC CENTRE
      Civic Approach
      Uckfield
      East Sussex
      TN22 1AE

      Saturday 19th October 2019
      Sunday 20th October 2019

      Open 10am till 5pm both days.

      The 2019 Uckfield Model Railway Exhibition will once again be featuring a selection of some of the best quality layouts around. There will be full trade support as well as Demonstration and Society stands. Licensed Restaurant within the Civic Centre will be open throughout the weekend. There will be bacon/sausage baps for early arrivals to purchase - from 9am.

      Of the 16 layouts there will no less than 13 different scale/gauge combinations represented. Standard and narrow gauge British, American, Australian and Dutch prototypes.
       
      Highlights include the UK debut of De Graafstroom, the new layout from Vincent de Bode more widely known for his GER P4 layout Flintfield. We also have two models of Lambourn, one in P4 the other in 2mm finescale, the first time we believe that have been exhibited together. We have the debut of Peter North's new layout, Aerodrome Park. More usually associated with the North American scene, Peter has turned his hand to modelling the 1930s Southern Electric. Andrew Bartlett has also agreed to bring along his excellent new layout Blueball Summit, featured here on RMweb, to the show. Finally we have two finalists from the Wild Swan Cameo Competition for you to enjoy, Midland in Bristol and Bottom Works Sidings.

      Public access to the Civic Centre is via either the free High Street car park (Civic Approach), or the Tesco Superstore. The venue is also only three minutes walk away from both the railway and bus stations.

      Additional car parking at the station car park - £3 per day at weekend.

  • Recent Event Reviews

    • ***Bury St Edmunds MRC 70th anniversary exhibtion***
      By colin penfold,
         This was an excellent show. Congratulations to Bury St Edmunds MRC for putting together such an array of quality layouts including two stars of MRJ - Orford and Templefield. I also really enjoyed Coldfair Green, Coronado Shortline and Cobbolds Wharf.  Brilliant to get so much quality in a smaller, local show. Well done to all
    • Mendip 2019
      By John P.,
         A very mixed show with several scales and prototypes shown. Unfortunately Hook Basin had to cancel on Friday morning.
      Still a good show. Excellent refreshments, easy parking what more could you want? Unless you were expecting any OO stuff,
      there wasn't any!
      I enjoyed being  a part of this show exhibiting Burnham.
       
    • ALSRM Annual Show
      By Donw,
         I have rated this based on last year so anyone knows it should be worth going to. I will update it tomorrow after the event although that will be too late to help anyone. The event always has some excellent layouts and there is a good range of trade stands for 7mm and larger. If you are looking for boxshifters of 00 stuff forget it. but there are some good traders there.

    • Railex 2019 Model Railway Exhibition
      By Kingzance,
         It has been some time since I last went to an exhibition and this one, whilst more than an hour away from me with no direct public transport route available, offers a wide range of suppliers / trade stands and some of the layouts that I have found inspirational from the modelling press. Not being as large as Warley, I feel it will be much more "do-able" in one full day whereas anything larger and you feel you have missed part of it. I will be ordering bits from a few suppliers (Alan Gibson, Green Scene, ModelU at least) in advance so I can pick up my needs on the day.
    • 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?
