Took a trip to the seaside (not that we saw it) with Derek Atfield to visit the Bognor Regis MRC show. Not the best I have been to, but there are always a few things of interest, and it was a pleasant drive through the countryside to get there. I was impressed by the strong junior membership in the club, and the number of layouts the juniors had on show.
I liked Tokar – OO9 in 1930’s Sudan. Lots of detail in the Kasbah….
Perhaps the best layout on show was this On2.5 layout – but I can’t recall its name, as it doesn’t appear in the exhibition guide. Good running and good scenery.
Note the O gauge fox in the foreground…
There were a couple of layouts with southern third-rail in place. And two different takes on the Southern transformer houses and switchgear.
A 4-CEP is being prepared for the next service….
‘The Brick’ is based somewhere around Bricklayers Arms in south London. I liked the abandoned bridge with barbed wire and bushes (probably buddleia.)
Our friends from the West Sussex Group had a modular layout on show.
This took me back to my early years of work, designing sewage works. I really don’t think this one would work….
