    • Mendip24
      By John P.,
         Quite easy and fairly straightforward to enter an event.
    • Hillingdon Railway Modellers - Test Track Open Day
      By Solderpete,
         A friendly get-together and good chance to run your models.
      The refreshments are pretty good too. 
    • Lincoln district model railway exhibition
      By Dagworth,
         A well presented local club show with around a dozen layouts in 2, 4 and 7mm scales. The O gauge layout was actually one of the smallest layouts present.
      Layouts were a mix of entertaining fiction through to well researched models of real places and places that had previously had railways but modelled as though those lines had survived the Beeching cull. A good mix of steam era and more modern diesel content too. One exhibit showed the true definition of a tail chaser, the train missing it's own tail by about 2 millimetres.
      I was there helping with a layout presented as a work in progress that got quite a lot on interest showing how a layout was built.
      A good social and meal on the Saturday evening in a local pub added to a great all-round weekend.
      The show was VERY busy both days!
      My thanks to the organising club and to @Clive Mortimore for letting me be his wingman for the weekend
    • Lincoln district model railway exhibition
      By Clive Mortimore,
         Well done to Sean who organised the show.
    • Lincoln district model railway exhibition
      By Grampus,
         A really enjoyable local show. I've just come back from spending a couple of hours there this afternoon. Friendly people and some great modelling. My personal favourite layout was 'Horncastle', which ticked a lot of (mostly blue and yellow with Railfreight grey and red) boxes for me. Well worth popping along tomorrow if you have a few minutes to spare. Thanks to all concerned for a nice afternoon out. 
      All the best,
