Our 19th Exhibition

was held on
Saturday & Sunday 18th/19th October 2003

at the
Uckfield Civic Centre
Civic Approach, Uckfield
East Sussex



The exhibition was a great success with eighteen layouts attending. There were fourteen different scale/gauge combinations on show including those in 0, P4, EM, 00, 00-9, H0, H0e, H0-9, TT and N. Layouts traveled from as far away as Birmingham, Cambridgeshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Nottinghamshire and Wiltshire to be at the exhibition, portraying British, American and European standard and narrow gauge prototypes.


The Weald Hall on the Saturday morning


Twelve members of the trade, including specialist manufacturers, had a presence at the show. There was a display by the model engineers from the Bentley Miniature Railway as well as the popular demonstration stand.


The show was very successful, with many comments being received as to the high quality of the exhibits, the variety of trade goods on offer and the general friendliness of those taking part.
