    N Gauge SouthEast 2020 4 April 2020 10am-4pm Reigate College Rushworth Road Reigate RH2 0QF Following the success of this year's show, we've committed ourselves to NGSE 2020. The show will be on 4 April 2020, and it will be at a new site, Reigate College. The show will be a little smaller than Riddlesdown this year, but still a good size with around 15-18 layouts. This facility does look as if it could be a regular home for us, access is a lot easier (it's just behind Reigate station), and a slightly smaller show will be more sustainable as an annual event (at least for the exhibition manager). The hall is a large single facility (no long walks between exhibits), using the two halves of the College refectory. It’s a modern, airy, space. Access to public transport is good, train or bus, and there is plenty of car parking on site.
  2. I have mentioned the possibility of a site for donations on N Gauge Forum. I'm sure that there would be support across the modelling fraternity. Jon
  3. I think this may be the trader. http://www.modelrailsigns.co.uk/, but apologies to all if I am wrong. He booked in late for N Gauge Southeast as well.
  4. A reminder that N Gauge SouthEast is on Saturday. I think that we have a good show on offer. Although it's all N gauge (with a 2mm FS representative), there will be enough good modelling for enthusiasts in all scales (well, perhaps less than Gauge 3, anyway!) Hope to see you there (look for the exhibition manager flying past....)
  5. An anniversary and a new show East Surrey N Gauge celebrates 21 years of modular railway modelling and its 21st exhibition in 2019. This year’s show, titled N Gauge SouthEast will be our largest to date and is to be a joint show with the N Gauge Forum. It should be the 'N' gauge show of the south! There will be over 25 ‘N’ gauge layouts on display, including Ambleton Vale, Banbury, Forrestone, Lightermans Yard, Millfield Yard and Wenlock. There will be modular layouts from East Surrey N Gauge and the West Sussex ‘N’ Gauge MRC. 12 specialist traders and 3 society stands (including the N Gauge Society) will complete the show. The show will be held on Saturday 6th April 2019 at Riddlesdown Collegiate, Honister Heights, Purley, Surrey, CR8 1EX. The school offers level access and plenty of parking, and there will be a shuttle minibus from Purley Station. For further details, see the exhibition website. East Surrey N Gauge meets twice monthly in Redhill, where the club modular layout is set up and is available for running trains from all corners of the world. For details, see the club website. N Gauge Forum probably shouldn't be mentioned here.... www.ngaugesoutheast.co.uk/ & www.esng.club
  6. Hi Chris, I mailed and PM'ed you about the G6 and O2 chassis, but have had no reply. Did something get lost???? Many thanks, Jon
  7. Perhaps it's just that we don't want to miss out.....
  8. Not sure about musical accompaniments.... Many years ago, I exhibited next to a Swiss layout, with a backing track of alpenhorns and cuckoo clocks. They were lucky to survive....
  9. Coming to Redhill, Surrey on Saturday - the ESNG show. All 'N' gauge (plus a little 2mm and Nm). It's easy to visit us and the Horsham show in Crawley in one day. Hope to see you there.
  10. My copy was delivered yesterday! I'm a South Londoner, but the photos are evocative of the east or south-east either side of the river. Enough material here for numerous urban projects.
  11. Thanks! Though from photos the main differences are the front grille and cab - both easy to fix. Jon
  12. I'm trying to decide whether to take the plunge into 2mm. I would start with a Wisbech & Upwell layout, using Farish O4 shunters with tram skirts. So my question is, what is the minimum amount of work on the Farish wheels needed to get them through 2mm points? I don't need full replacements, and cosmetics are not critical as the wheels are going to be hidden. Cheers, Jon
