Mid Wales Model Railway Exhibition

Nice bright morning for a trip over to Welshpool this morning.  Looking forward to seeing Peter Kazer's Boot for the first time.


£4 admission looks a bargain.

Excellent show.

I've been to far bigger shows that charged far more to get in but had nothing like the quality of this one.

A big "thank you" to all who came along to support the Newtown Model Railway Society show in Welshpool yesterday, and not least to all the exhibitors, traders and helpers who gave up their time to make our show a success. 

I hope everyone had a good time and enjoyed see the layouts in attendance...indeed, we received many positive comments about the quality of the layouts on display..
