  1. and here at Uckfield in 2011 http://www.uckfieldmrc.co.uk/exhib11/bankhallsidings.html
  2. Leysdown is now in the S-Max ready for its trip to Basingstoke. Hopefully the ex LB&SCR D1 which has featured on all the show's publicity will be running! Looking forward to meeting any fellow RMweb members attending the exhibition.
  3. Visited today - evidence of the heavy snowfall on Friday in the venue's car park and side roads but all accessible with care. Coastal DCC were there as were most of the planned exhibits. Those listed in the guide but didn't appear to have made it were: Layouts: Buckleigh (00), Glynn Valley Tram (00-9), Portwenn (0-16.5) and Titherleigh (00) Trade: Kytes Lights, Masterpiece Figures and Model Railway Bits The layout Herstmonceux (00) I believe had already withdrawn from the exhibition prior to the guide being printed but did feature on some early publicity. However there were 11 layouts, 14 members of the trade and 7 societies/demonstrators for your £5.
  4. Thanks Alan, I took 1094 photographs over the weekend with 488 making it into the retrospective.
  5. Hi All, Just to let you know that the 2019 Chiltern Model Railway Exhibition photographic retrospective has just been uploaded to the CMRA website. http://www.cmra.org.uk/stevenage19.html The retrospective features photographs of all forty layouts, members of the trade, demonstrators and society stands. All photographs were taken over the two days of the exhibition and we hope you find them worthy of viewing? Provisional details of the CMRA 2020 show have also been uploaded. http://www.cmra.org.uk/exhibition.html
  6. Tollesbury Quay was awarded the Denis Moore Cup for the best scenic modelling on a layout appearing at the exhibition.
  7. Unfortunately Peter North had to withdraw his new 00 layout Aerodrome Park from the exhibition at short notice due to him being poorly. Thanks are due to Andrew Jones from the Luton Model Railway Club who filled the gap with the shortest version of his 7mm/ft scale layout the Stodden Hundred Light Railway. I believe Peter has agreed to Aerodrome Park making its appearance at the show next year.
  8. Last day to order Discounted Advance Tickets. https://www.gordon-craig.co.uk/cmra-model-railway-exhibition-i2098/ Although there is no early admission, those holding advance tickets will be directed to the ground floor entrance - the level of the exhibition halls - thus avoiding any queues for the box office on the first floor.
  9. Added two more layouts to those expected to attend in initial post: El Cremallera by Piers Milne - Spanish metre gauge rack railway in 1:160 scale 6.5mm gauge (Continental Nm) Wilstone by Geoff Evans - Small narrow gauge through station in 7mm/ft scale 16.5mm gauge (0-16.5) Unfortunately Layouts4u are unable to attend however their space has been ably filled by a new member of the trade Mount Tabor Models. Full updated list of trade, demonstrators and supporting organisations can be found on the CMRA website: http://www.cmra.org.uk/exhibition.html
  10. Only four days left to get your Discounted Advance tickets. https://www.gordon-craig.co.uk/cmra-model-railway-exhibition-i2098/
  11. Hi Christopher, I agree given that the prototype wasn't metre gauge - a more accurate "shorthand" designation would possibly be "S-16.5" as in 0-16.5, 00-9 etc. or even maybe Sn3.5 However the builders of the layout in all their publicity and website at http://www.mscmaasenwaal.nl/koningswaal.html have given it the "Sm" designation. Maybe something to discuss with them at the show?
  12. I have been asked to publicise the discounted Advance Tickets. There is as option to purchase discounted advance tickets from the venue box office either in person, via phone or by the box office website: https://www.gordon-craig.co.uk/cmra-model-railway-exhibition-i2098/ Discounted Advance Adult tickets are £8 This gives a discount of £2 on the "on the door" price of £10. There is no booking fee for tickets purchased however there is a £1 fee per transaction to cover postage etc should you wish for the ticket(s) to be mailed out to you. Even if only purchasing a single ticket and requesting it is posted there is a saving of a £1. Although there is no early admission for advance ticket holders, those holding advance tickets will be directed to the ground floor entrance - the level of the exhibition halls - thus avoiding any queues for the box office on the first floor. Closing date for the discounted Advance Tickets is the 7th January 2019. Note: For any local visitors who live in postcode areas SG1 and SG2 there is a further discount of £1 making Advance Adult tickets only £7. This price is only available for those visiting the venue box office in person or purchasing by phone - not online. The same closing date of 7th January applies. To help speed up admissions on the day the Box office will have the facility to take contactless card payments subject to the normal £30 limit.
