Where I’ll be on Saturday

Tolworth Showtrain – the annual exhibition of the Hampton Court Model Railway is one exhibition I try to get to every year.  It’s of a high standard and has an ‘American room’ devoted to USA layouts and traders.

This year, on 8-9 November, there is an added reason to go – 2mm fine scale modelling on the grand scale.  The UK Model Shops site says that:

2mm Finescale Layout to make London Debut

The star of Tolworth Showtrain 2014 will be Fencehouses, a 2mm Finescale layout depicting some 1¼ miles of railway in County Durham which will be making it’s London and Southeast debut. A feature of this layout is the Victoria Viaduct which is some 3 feet high. The show will have 25 layouts along with 27 traders, together with various Society stands. There will be the usual American themed section. Easy parking and bus link from Surbiton Station. Free Accompanied Child offer on Sunday. For further details go to the Exhibition Calendar or the Tolworth Showtrain website.

Should be excellent, as these photos suggest, and worth catching a northern layout rarely seen in the south-east.
