    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.
  2. Yet again this show co-incised with one I'm exhibiting at! (Mendip 2019). I would really like to take in one of these excellent shows, most frustrating.

    Another layout "Burnham-on-Sea"2FS will attend. What a lot of scales/gauges!

    I've just returned from holiday so I'm sorry Tim V. for my late reply. I thought I'd put the dates in the form as required, obviously not! Thanks for picking that up.

  7. Thanks for these pics. You've enabled me to see ,in detail, some very good modelling that, as an exhibitor, I didn't get much chance to see. I was on the Midford layout, stood out a mile as English!
  8. As a member of the Small & Delightful Railway Group, although speaking privately, I don't think this day could possibly be taken as a successor to NGSW. NGSW was a large and excellent show, as a showcase for narrow gauge modelling it probably had no equal. The show at Compton Dundon was much smaller and encouraged discussions and gave visitors (and exhibitors) the opportunity to get behind layouts, perhaps to "have a go".
  9. I've just got back from here a very good show and to be recommended highly. A high standard of exhibits, especially San Maria Gandia and lots of peoples to chat to. Excellent sandwiches and cakes too, but unfortunately no bacon butties.

    More bad news, I'm afraid. Scratchy Bottom has been cancelled. Pity as this is a favourite of mine. At this late stage we are not going to look for a replacement but we will re-instate the club table for demos etc. Now I'm busy writing up the show guide. Never a dull moment in this game!

    First, the bad news, unfortunately "Godshill (Ogauge) has been withdrawn. Now the good news "Holcombe (O gauge) is booked as replacement.
  12. An excellent show, Geoff. Well done all those who worked hard to arrange this.

  15. A great show, I enjoyed exhibiting Burnham-on-Sea although a little overawed by the company around me. Thank you very much the Farnham club who all worked hard to make the show a success. Speaking as an exhibitor all aspects of the show were well organised, the excellent road signage was commented on by my companions on the way in.
