Accucraft threw open their doors last Saturday for their annual open day. As well as a skip full of bargains, there was trade support from Swift Sixteen, Model Earth Design & Talisman Brass Castings, Trenarren Models.

 

Model Earth design specialises in 7/8th scale kits:

They also produce some very reasonably price wagons kit which we'll be featuring in the October issue of Garden Rail. More of these below.

 

Swift Sixteen has reintroduced their railbus kit and it was lapping the test track.

As well as the trade, John Campbell exhibited his minimum space layout "Campbell’s Quarry".

Neil Ramsay showed his collection of Irish railway stock from which I've picked a couple of railcars, but hope to persuade him to tell us more in a future edition of the magazine.

Over on the test track, a couple of 7/8th scale Bagnall tanks were being run for their new owners. Loaded with a train of Model Earth wagons, they looked the part and so I sent my camera along for the ride too.
