Very sorry indeed to hear the sad news. I had known Ant for quite a few years and really enjoyed meeting him at shows and so on.


He will be missed.


My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Gutted to hear this news. Another loss to the hobby. 

I offer my own condolences and also those from all at the High Wycombe and District MRS from just down the road.

Ant (Anthony Mead) passed away on the 13th of Feb he played a huge part of the Risborough & District Model Railway Club having been Exhibition Manager of Railex before I took over and basicity being my right hand man for Railex too. He was Treasurer for DEMU for a few years too. He was only 46.


Ant had suffered from Cystic Fibrosis and even through he only made it along to the last few Railex shows for a few hours normally with a back pack of oxygen. the amount of time he put in behind the scenes was amazing, He would check my floor plans and say that a layout or trade stand was 2mm longer than started on the booking form, plus he put together the programme and adverts and posters.





What a brilliant guy, through thick & thin he always smiled.  See you somewhere.  Charlie
