Model Shops in Sheringham; Norfolk

Recommended Posts

Well our show has been the first Saturday in October for some years,  I don't know if the O gauge, gathering have changed their date or thought it was a different  market and didn't matter...

From my infrequent visits to this gathering, it was always later in October. I recall it clashed with the BRM Peterborough show two or three years back.

I'd recommend Buoys toys & models, 30 Louden Road Cromer(opposite tourist centre & main car park) GE models/Bure Valley/Hunstanton models are well recommended. Auto loco in Sheringham looked rather sad last time I was there(about 2 years ago)

Good news... i'm guessing Smiths are moving from their Grantham address.

I shall go for a visit once they're up and running..

Note these days the EDP doesn't really report things, they got rid of most of the reporters years ago. They sit back in head office and wait for someone to send in advertising blurb. Or for a member of the public to phone in with a report of an incident .often wrong..

Smiths in Sheringham was being fitted out last week when I passed by.   Opens shortly - I think the notice said the 19th.

I might go in, ask for something really obscure and then moan when they don't have it.

Actually, that's not in my nature. I shall pop in and wish them well at least. Knowing me, I'll come home with something I didn't know I needed...

It will be very interesting how he pitches the shop, which was mainly for model boats in later days. With Bure Valley Models at Aylsham, Model Scenic Supplies and Buoys Toys and Models in Cromer all of which are very good model railway shops each targeting different aspects of model railways, he has a hard task with his new shop.
